Positive Negative

There is no difference between iPhone Objective-C and that used on the Mac. The same development environment is provided by Apple and used to develop on both platforms known as Xcode. The Objective-C version is Objective-C 2.0 on both platforms.

There are differences in the libraries available, the main libary on the iPhone is known as Cocoa Touch, which has some features added for controlling touch screens, and has others removed, but for the most part if one understands how to program in Cocoa they should have no problem utilizing Cocoa Touch.

I highly suggest if you are looking to program on the iPhone that you check out Programming In Objective-C 2.0 LiveLessons which is a thorough introduction to Objective-C 2.0, and a basic introduction into Mac and iPhone programming.
