Apple updates iPhone developer agreement, interpreted code now permissible

Sat, Jun 12, 2010


Flying somewhat under the radar, Apple recently revised section 3.32 of the iPhone Developer agreement to allow developers to use interpreted languages such as Lua in their apps, with written permission from the mothership of course.

Previously, the pertinent section stated that “No interpreted code may be downloaded or used in an Application except for code that is interpreted and run by Apple’s Documented APIs and built-in interpreter(s).”

Under the revised version, Apple prefaced the section with the following, “Unless otherwise approved by Apple in writing…”

This should be welcome news for game developers whose apps often use game engines and libraries that “leverage interpreted languages.”
