Apple extends iPhone developer program

Move is good news for developers who reportedly have been having some trouble renewing their iPhone development licenses.

Apple developers have been having a tough time renewing their iPhone development licenses, according to reports . For them, the company had some good news Friday: the licensing for all developers has been extended to July 11--one year after the opening of the iTunes App Store.

Additionally, Apple announced that licensing renewals will begin in May, a full 60 days prior to the developer program expiration date. Developers got the news in an e-mail.

The message sent to developers is shown below:

Recently, according to CNET News' Tom Krazit , there has been astounding growth in the iTunes App Store, and the growth continues at a fast pace with more than 25,000 applications listed. The growth has been so great that Apple has had trouble keeping up with it, leaving a few kinks in the App Store to figure out.

Now, developers can rest easy because Apple has finally managed to work out the kinks and keep its developers happy--none of their licenses will expire abruptly after all.
