With the blogosphere rife with speculation about a third-generation Apple iPhone slated for June, application developers are dealing with the realities of how to get the most out of the next version of the popular device's software development kit.

Apple showed off the first publicly available version of the iPhone SDK on March 6, and developers are getting their feet wet. The company outlined the enterprise-friendly features of the SDK, the included development tools and Apple's plan to help third parties distribute their applications. The iPhone 2.0 operating system update for users, Apple said, will be available in June at no charge.
