Apple Offers Additional Aggregate Info On App Store Submission Review Status

9 to 5 Mac reports that Apple has updated its App Store Review Status clock on its iPhone developer news page, now offering aggregate data for app review processing time for both new applications and updates over the past week.

Previously, the review status widget offered only a single number displaying the percentage of applications currently being approved within two weeks of submission. The new wording of the status indicator leaves some question, however, about whether it continues to refer to an approval rate as it implied previously or if the data refers strictly to Apple having reviewed submissions.
