New iPhone SDK beta upgrades Simulator

updated 09:05 am EDT, Thu April 24, 2008

iPhone SDK beta 4

Apple has released the fourth beta of its iPhone development kit, used to produce native programs for the iPhone 2.0 firmware in advance of the June opening of the App Store. Beta 4 upgrades the iPhone Simulator application with support for OpenGL ES, an embedded version of the popular 3D rendering API that will be crucial for running games. A variety of 3D games are already in development for the iPhone, including a port of Sega's Super Monkey Ball.

The Simulator now also runs an updated version of the v2.0 firmware, listed as version 5A258f; in this the Contacts application has been given a search bar located at the top of the window, something earlier previewed exclusively for enterprise beta testers. The SDK as a whole is a 1.15GB download, and is free only to registered developers.
