Apple has announced it has dropped the NDA (non disclosure agreement) regarding development of iPhone software.
In a statement on the company's website Apple explains "We put the NDA in place because the iPhone OS includes many Apple inventions and innovations that we would like to protect".
"However, the NDA has created too much of a burden on developers, authors and others interested in helping further the iPhone's success, so we are dropping it for released software."
This is great news for iPhone owners and developers, the announcement will pave the way for freedom of information and books for developers to create unique and innovative software.
