    I would like to know the process of the submitting an app.

    Actually I had different versions of the app(for sdk 2.2.1 and 3.1.2), and some of the features of the 3.1.2 are not available on the 2.2.1. So my quest is ,

    Is it possible to submit two different versions (sdk) of the same app to the iTunes store and while downloading does it invokes the user , the requirements for the application. or do we have to submit the application for the latest version only.

    You can only submit one version of an app. If you want to support multiple versions of the OS you need to do that in one app.

    While it is possible to submit multiple apps there's no reason to do that simply to support different OSes.

    appstore application testing

    What is the OS does the appstore people tests while testing.
    Do they test on all the OS between the minimum and maximum versions we mention or tests only on the latest version of OS.

    This information, like the entire approval process, is just not publicly known.

    My guess is that they test on the latest OS and nothing else.

    I can tell you that I recently submitted an update to an app on the appstore. It was built to run on 2.2.1 thru 3.1. There was a critical bug, that I was unaware of due to my insufficient testing on 2.2.1, that made it impossible to run the app on 2.2.1 but had no effect on 3.x. They approved the app.
