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.

    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.
