Apple has begun sending out acceptance letters to some international developers informing them of their acceptance into the iPhone Developer Program. According to a TUAW report, UK-based developers must pay a £59 fee to join the program, while U.S.-based developers are charged $99. The fees in other parts of the world are still unknown. The for-pay iPhone Development Program gives developers access to beta builds of iPhone software, the ability to test code directly on an iPhone or iPod touch, includes the generation of a digital certificate that will identify the company when its applications are published, and the ability to sell your applications through the App Store.
