iPad – Magical and Revolutionary device launched with newer SDK 3.2 Beta for development.

Apple announced their latest innovative product, iPad. It was much awaited tablet from them. As expected previously developed iPhone application will be running on the iPad without modification in double pixel format. 🙂
We are now getting SDK 3.2 beta to download from Apple’s developer account. PLEASE make sure to read agreement before download. This SDK 3.2 for iPad app development is under NDA.

Here is link to download http://www.apple.com/ipad/sdk/
You will have to be enrolled as developer to initiate the download.

Once you download the SDK, question arises that how to keep 2 versions of xcode running on the Mac. This is because iPad SDK can not be used for now to submit your app.


By default, all versions of Xcode and iPhone SDK installed in
‘/Developer’ with previous versions automatically upgraded. If you want
to keep a previously installed version of Xcode, you must either do a
“Custom Install” and specify a new <Xcode> directory name, or you must
move the pre-existing /Developer directory to a new name before you
install this new version of Xcode. This is mentioned in Step 5 below.

1. Boot into a partition with the Mac OS X v10.6.2 or later installed.
2. Download the Xcode installation package.
3. Double-click on the .mpkg Installer package.
4. Follow the instructions in the Installer.
5. To install Xcode in a directory other than the default /Developer,
you must specify a new <Xcode> directory name on the “Custom Install”
Select the folder icon under “Location” next to the “Essentials”
package. Select “Other…” at the top of the pop-up. Navigate to the
location for the new <Xcode> folder. Create new folder here.
Finally, select “Choose” in the “Install Xcode Tools” pane.
Interface Builder are installed in <Xcode>/Applications.

In case you don’t have Mac OS X v 10.6.2 or later, then please refer to ‘About Xcode and iPhone SDK’ ReadMe file for iPhone SDK 3.2 Beta.

We hope you are now ready to see your first app running into iPad simulator! It feels amazing to see iPad simulator running.
