iPhone SDK 3.2 supports external displays for iPad

updated 06:35 pm EST, Wed January 27, 2010

Beta version released alongside new hardware

Alongside the new iPad unveiled on Wednesday, Apple also introduced an update to its iPhone SDK. The kit, currently in beta form, will allow developers to create applications optimized for the iPad. Users can browse through a programming guide for information regarding multi-touch apps on the tablet's larger display, while the Human Interface Guidelines covers the new views and controls.

The SDK provides APIs that will allow developers to create apps that utilize external displays attached to the iPad. Other supported features include a shared file directory and tools to build universal apps that work on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

Apple has provided sample code to help users get started on the iPad platform and universal applications. Tablet apps can also be previewed on an iPad simulator for UI layout configuration, memory tests, and other debugging.

The iPhone SDK 3.2 beta is currently available for all members of the iPhone Developer Program.
