Apple said Thursday that it will control the sale and distribution of all iPhone software created by independent developers. The software will be distributed via a new program on the iPhone called App Store, as well as on Macs and PCs via a new section of the iTunes Store.

Unveiling App Store during Thursday’s iPhone briefing at Apple’s Cupertino headquarters, CEO Steve Jobs described App Store as “an application we’ve written to deliver apps to the iPhone. And we’re going to put it on every single iPhone with the next release of the software.”

That software—the iPhone 2.0 release—is slated for June and will also include the Software Development Kit announced Thursday. A beta of the SDK is available now from Apple.
