    Hi,

    Just wondered, since apparently my 8gb iTouch 3G won't be able to update to 4.3, will I still be able to test apps created with the SDK?

    I was hoping to start iOS development when I buy a MacBook Pro this summer...

    Thanks, Alex.

    As long as you are targeting your build for 4.2.1 or lower you will be fine.

    Ok cheers, and people with 4.3 and higher will be able to still use these apps?

    And will I have trouble with Apple accepting my app to the app store? :confused:

    You will have no problem with newer iOS versions unless your app uses APIs that become deprecated in future versions.

    Unless your App is using 4.x only features, you should likely target your builds to 3.x anyways so that first gen iPhone users can run your app.

    Regardless, you don't need a physical device to create or submit an App, you can do all of that with the simulator.
