Online Flash content remains inaccessible to iPhone users, due to Apple's restrictions. But Flash developers will soon be able to port their apps to the iPhone.
At its annual developer conference in Los Angeles on Monday, Adobe secured Flash's future, at least for the near term.
Adobe said that its forthcoming Flash Professional CS5 will allow to developers "to create rich, interactive applications for the iPhone and iPod Touch."
But just because those applications were created as Flash applications does not mean they will be allowed to run as Flash applications.
Flash Professional CS5, to be released as a public beta later this year, will allow developers to create Flash applications using the Flash development platform and then export those Flash apps as native iPhone applications.
