Hey guys...I am new here and am only 14...but...

I recently bought an iPod Touch and have been waiting for what seems endlessly for the SDK. I was [and am] afraid to jailbreak it, and the SDK looks like the golden way out, so to speak, and I am pretty sure Apple will release it tonight...even though they have literally said nothing since Macworld.

Well...unless I am wrong, someone please answer these questions in defense to the release tonight:

Why, on the day speculated for over a month as the day that Apple will release the iPhone SDK, did 1.1.4 come out?

Why, on the same day, does another update for iTunes come? (7.6.1)?

Why, on the same day, does Apple release new stuff for their Macbook users?

Why couldn't they have waited an extra two weeks to release the stuff on the Macbooks for the press to be able to cover the Macbook release along with the SDK?!?

All of these support the fact that the SDK will come out tonight. If I have missed something, please, tell me.

And keep in mind that where Apple is located, it is PST...meaning they still have plenty enough time for a major release.

Apple doesn't release stuff at night, only mornings and afternoons. There was a special event scheduled for today but was postponed for sometime in mid-March. I believe Apple was supposed to make an announcement that the SDK was pushed to March to coincide with the delayed event.

1.1.4 was most likely just to hold people over for a little while. Since nobody seems to know what's really in it, it can only be speculated that it contains bug fixes and a few more files to prepare the iPhone for the upcoming SDK. Also, that 7.6.1 iTunes update came out a few days ago, not today.

None of what you have stated supports the fact that the SDK will be released tonight. It's simply conjecture on your part.

The iTunes update has been out for almost a week. Believe me, I'd love for them to release it "tonight" but it's not happening. Sorry kid.

So you're "pretty sure" based on what?

Because speculation plays no part in Apple's release schedule, and 1.1.4 was ready for release.

Quote:

Because the new iTunes update was ready for release. It may also be required for the 1.1.4 update.

Quote:

Because it was ready.

Because the iPhone SDK has nothing whatsoever to do with "stuff on the MacBooks."

You have missed something - the fact that you're basing this SDK release date on.... nothing at all, other than random statements, not even guesswork. Apple will release it when they're ready, not when you think they should.
