Here is more information on what Apple is doing with Mobile Safari: http://www.readwriteweb.com/mobile/2010/11/what-web-developers-should-kno.php

New features are for example DeviceOrientation API, Web Sockets API and Enhanced SVG and Canvas support so it is not directly applicable to our WG but it is still interesting.

Dear all,

you might find it interesting to see that in their release of iAd JS, Apple supports:

 - A simple calendar interface that has properties similar to ours, and mostly allows bringing up a dialog to save an event to one's calendar;
 - A set of simple messaging APIs that allow to send SMS, MMS, and email. The latter has a simple approach to handling the body and attachments. Again, these bring up a UI to send the message.

You can find the details at:


(In the Documents box, search for calendar, mail, etc.)

This is quite interesting :)

Agreed. This is very interesting. You have to be a paid up Apple Developer to access this info though (AFAICT).

Perhaps someone from Apple could comment / provide feedback here?
