iPhone 0S 3.0 beta 5 was only released yesterday, yet Apple have just sent an email to developers stating that:

“Beginning today, all submissions to the App Store will be reviewed on the latest beta of iPhone OS 3.0. If your app submission is not compatible with iPhone OS 3.0, it will not be approved.”

No release date has been set, but considering Apple are already forcing developers to ensure their apps work on a beta release of the new OS – its a sure sign that a release date is just around the corner.

According to TUAW, Apple may also remove applications from the store if they don’t meet the OS 3.0 requirements. iPhone developers, get to work!
