    I currently have a completed iPhone app that a company has developed for me that I wish to submit to the iPhone App Store.

    Do I need to purchase the SDK development program in order to submit my application?

    If so, I know that the SDK only runs on Macs, is there any way to submit an App as a Windows user?

    You need to register for the iOS developer program at $99 a year. App submission must be done on a Mac.

    iTunes Connect

    After signing up with the iTunes Developer Program you'll get access to iTunes Connect. It's a web-based tool which you use to add the description, screenshots etc of your app, so you'll be able to do that from a Windows computer.

    When you mark your app as "Ready to Upload Binary", the final step of uploading the app needs to be done from a Mac computer, however your developers will probably be happy to do this step for you if needed, so talk to them about what they'll need for this step.
