MacRumors is catching up with the french site Mac4Ever , who briefly speculates that Apple will release the iPhone OS 4.0 associated with the iPhone SDK , in the same day that they will release the much much, omg enough is enough, anticipated Apple Tablet. The event is now reportedly scheduled for January 27th and it will be held at the Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco and all rumors indicates that this will be a “big deal”
According to the report, the SDK will include a “simulator” to assist developers in adapting their existing App Store applications to support the tablet’s screen resolution. The deployment of tools for supporting multiple screen resolutions could also pave the way for a higher-resolution iPhone in the future.
Several of our sources give us two pieces of information concerning the famous Apple tablet: In late January, in addition to its tablet, Cupertino should have a beta of iPhone OS 4, accompanied by an SDK. Our informants also tell us of a “simulator” specifically adapted for the tablet. Evidently, the major novelty of the SDK therefore concerns the interface, making it easier for developers to adapt to different screen resolutions. The new iPhone could also benefit from a higher pixel density.
Mac4Ever is careful to note, however, that the information should be taken with a grain of salt, suggesting that it is not entirely confident in the claims. The site has, however, been remarkably accurate recently, nailing several of the details of Apple’s new iMac models and peripherals nearly a month before their release.
