Apple Squashes Bug That Leaked Upcoming App Updates In iOS 6 App Store
The respective release notes for the upcoming updates of a small number of apps were leaked beginning a couple of days ago. This minor yet interesting incident happened on account of a bug that affected the revamped App Store app currently accessible on iOS 6 beta. But as noted by 9to5Mac, which first reported on the issue as well, it appears that the bug has been fixed. The bug prematurely revealed the contents of upcoming updates for some apps, including Instagram, which is soon to be endowed with minor bug fixes. But the most notable of the leaked release notes pertain to the official iOS client of Twitter. Indeed, the news about the bug was broken using screenshots of the yet-to-be-released changelog for version 4.3 of Twitter for iOS.

As outlined in the leaked changelog, improvements on the way for the app include: a more interactive tweet view, Tweetbot-like ambient notifications, and curated top tweets and photos. A look at Twitter for iOS' update history in the App Store on iOS 6 beta confirms that the bug is no more. It's worth noting that this bug's prompt elimination comes shortly after Apple resolved, in a similarly prompt manner, a far more serious bug that affected purposefully released app updates.
