After a summer of hard work we are excited to announce a release date for Unity iPhone Publishing! Whether on an iPhone or an iPod touch, dazzle your audience with the finest content available in the App Store. 2D or 3D, touch or tilt - if you can think it, you can build it.
Here are a few brief highlights of the features and capabilities you'll find in Unity iPhone Publishing:
iPhone-enabled Live Preview: With the iPhone Remote, you can use an actual iPhone or iPod touch to view and test your game live, right inside the Unity Editor.
Seamless Publishing Workflow: Publishing a build for iPhone will create an entire, complete XCode project that just works.
Occlusion Culling: Everybody loves high performance. PVS-based occlusion culling enabled on the iPhone is perfect for squeezing maximum performance out of the iPhone.
Shader Emulation: Mimic the graphical abilities of the iPhone right inside the Unity Editor for fast WYSIWYG prototyping without any surprises in the final output.
