Apple bans Adobe Flash in OS 4.0 – bad news for iPhone 4G?

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.

As reported from Mashable, Apple has released the SDK beta of OS 4.0, and it was within that, which we learnt that Apple has updated their iPhone Developer Program License Agreement.

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.

Let us know your thoughts on this, more details through the link.
