Apple has quietly opened its iPhone SDK program to the international development community. AppleInsider reports changes to the text on the computing giant's iPhone Dev Center webpage indicate the developer program is now available for enrollment in 26 nations outside the U.S.--where previously the site stated "The iPhone Developer Program will initially be available to a limited number of developers in the U.S. and will expand to other countries in the coming months," a message now reads the program "will initially be available to a limited number of developers during the beta period," with The Unofficial Apple Weblog chiming in to announce a developer in the U.K. has already earned Apple's seal of approval.
