Positive Negative

Yes, there are many open source iPhone apps available to learn from. These include games, IRC clients, twitter clients, calculators, and more.

I mention the highest quality open source apps that I've found on this listing of open source iPhone apps. These are all apps that have actually been in the app store not simply tech demos.

If you're interested in learning OpenGL ES and coding your own 3D iPhone game from scratch then I suggest checking out the Doom iPhone source code. ID software has been nice enough to provide us with the source code for the iPhone version of the game. There is also an excellent writeup on the details for the game, and you can find both the writeup along with a download link to the source code here on this Doom iPhone article.

Doom iPhone is by far the most complicated of these open source apps, and is not recommended for those just starting out.
