Apple iPhone Developer Guide Finally Available

Apple has finally posted a developer guide for the Apple iPhone. It covers nearly everything you need to know so you can develop web pages for it.

Most interesting is which Standards it supports and which are noticeably absent:

Stick With Standards

Stick with standards when you design webpages for iPhone. Safari on iPhone shares the same Web Kit engine as Safari on the computer desktop. It supports all the latest modern web standards, including:

  • HTML 4.01
  • XHTML 1.0
  • CSS 2.1 and partial CSS 3.xx

  • JavaScript 1.4, including DOM support

  • AJAX technologies, including XMLHTTPRequest

The web is always evolving, and as it does, so will Safari. You’ll want to keep informed of the evolving standards emanating from WHATWG and W3C standards bodies.

Note: Safari on iPhone does not perform any code conversion, either by a proxy, or on the client. It renders pages as designed. It also does not render WML (Wireless Markup Language). It does support XHTML mobile profile document types or sites at .mobi domains.
