Apple Releases iPhone 3.2 SDK – No Leopard Build, Only Snow Leopard?

By , April 3, 2010 9:59 pm

I just logged into Apple’s Developer section to download the new iPhone 3.2 SDK and to my surprise there is no build for Leopard, just a build for Snow Leopard. After digging around in the iPhone SDK Release notes I found out that Apple isn’t going to release a build for Leopard.

iPhone SDK 3.2 provides support for developing iPad applications and includes the complete set of Xcode 3.2.2 tools, compilers, and frameworks for creating applications for iPhone OS and Mac OS X. These tools include the Xcode IDE and the Instruments analysis tool among many others.

With this software you can develop applications that run on iPad using the included iPhone Simulator, which runs iPhone OS 3.2. Additionally, you can develop applications for iPhone and iPod touch, which run on iPhone OS 3.1.3. (This software does not include all of the iPhone OS 2.x SDKs.) Installing iPhone SDK 3.2 requires a Macintosh computer running Mac OS X 10.6.2 (Snow Leopard) or later.

This means if you want to write apps for the iPad you will need an Intel Mac and Snow Leopard. I would also assume that this means the new iPhone 4.0 SDK will be the same way.
