Good news for all of you folks who pre-ordered an iPhone 5, or plan on picking one up on launch day. Developers are reporting that Apple is pushing through app updates for the handset at a rapid pace.
“We’ve been getting reports from developers that Apple is pushing review through its system at a rapid pace. App submissions are normally reviewed over a matter of days, but some are seeing times as quick as a few hours.
Apps that are only mentioning support iOS 6 and the iPhone 5 as changes in their app’s submissions are seeing quicker turnarounds.”
It”ll be interesting to see how consumers react to letter-boxed apps that aren’t updated right away. The Android platform has long been criticized for its app fragmentation between screen sizes.
iPhone 5 pre-orders will start arriving this Friday, the same day the handset is to go on sale in stores. And Apple is expected to seed the public release of iOS 6 sometime tomorrow morning.
What do you think, will it bother you if not all apps are updated for the iPhone 5 right away?
