Apple ends extended push notification testing

iPhone push testing ends

Apple has finally concluded efforts at testing the push notification technology in iPhone 3.0, developers say. Although push first became a coding option in April, heavy server testing only began in May, through the deployment of an early Associated Press application. The test was originally scheduled to last a week, making its run into June a sign of technical problems, or simply a desire to be as thorough as possible.

In tandem with the release of iTunes 8.2 -- which adds iPhone 3.0 support -- it is believed that the conclusion of push testing may indicate an imminent release for new firmware. A likely date could fall or around next week's Worldwide Developers Conference, where Apple will be able to teach v3.0 techniques and may introduce a new iPhone. Staggering the releases of hardware and software could prevent some of the activation problems which plagued the iPhone 3G.

    AP News push?

    That screenshot seems to be from the AP News app.

    re: AP News push?

    That app has been updated for iPhone 3.0; so while it won't (rather, can't) support push on iPhone 2.x, it will in 3.0 as is.
