It looks as if the war between Apple and Adobe is far from over, as it has been confirmed that Apple has banned support for a flash-to iPhone converter within their recently announced iPhone OS 4.0 software.
Here is a portion of Apple’s new Licensing Agreement: ”Applications must be originally written in Objective-C, C, C++, and only code written in C, C++, and Objective-C may compile and directly link against the Documented APIs”
What this basically means, is that Apple are preventing the use of Adobe’s workaround, which previously enabled developers to use a flash converter on the iPhone.
How will Adobe respond to this? – Will they now come up with another solution to counter-attack Apple? Apple has firmly stamped their authority on the whole issue surrounding flash it seems, so it doesnt look likely that Adobe will be lending their support behind the next version of the iPhone this year.
