Apple Drops iPhone NDA, New Agreement Coming

X

Apple has now officially released the new agreement that replaces its old NDA (non-disclosure agreement), which removes the confidentiality clause and makes several other changes, according to a report on iPhoneatlas.com. In theory, developers can now discuss iPhone (Application Programming Interfaces) APIs, and new applications can be open sourced.


“We have decided to drop the non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for released iPhone software,” said an Apple spokesman. “We put the NDA in place because the iPhone OS includes many Apple inventions and innovations that we would like to protect, so that others don’t steal our work. However, the NDA has created too much of a burden on developers, authors and others interested in helping further the iPhone’s success. Developers will receive a new agreement without an NDA. Please note that unreleased software and features will remain under NDA until they are released.”

Apple has also announced an iPhone developer-to-developer forum, which includes its own set of agreements, which will be announced at a later date.
