Last Call For iPhone Apps, Apple Tells Developers (AAPL)

Want your iPhone/iPod touch app to go on sale July 11 when Apple’s (AAPL) official store opens? Hope it’s ready now.

A tipster tells us that Apple wants all apps in their hands today, June 30, for testing and approval. This makes sense: We imagine there will be several hundred, if not thousands, of apps available at launch, so asking for them 11 days in advance doesn’t seem too unreasonable. (Though our tipster says he/she didn’t find out about the deadline until Friday.)

What we don’t know: If developers will have the chance to work out any bugs/problems Apple turns up before the store launches, or if this is a do-or-die application for launch day.

Any more information? Let us know in comments, via email at [email protected], or via our anonymous tip box.
