I think some iPhone games use OpenGL SE.

Can the iMac with 9400M handle developing games for iPhone?

You shouldn't have any trouble developing for the iPhone platform using your iMAC.
Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

Every current mac will easily handle the needs of iPhone development.  We use a couple mac minis from the last generation and they work great.
