Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.11.0 will be submitted to Apple this week

It looks like Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.11.0 is nearing completion, because it could be submitted to Apple very soon. One of the newer Minecraft PE developers, Shoghi Cervantes, dropped the news on Twitter:

For those of us that can't read Spanish, here is a rough translation from Google Translate:

For those who do not know, we will send the final version of MCPE 0.11 this week. We will have to wait for Apple to approve it.

As you may know, Apple requires new apps or updates to undergo review to make sure it doesn't include anything bad in it (malware, viruses, etc). This can take anywhere from two days to two weeks, so it's anyone's guess how long this could take.

Mojang usually waits until Apple approves the MCPE update before making the update public on the Google Play Store (which has no reivew process). Amazon also has a review process, which is why sometimes updates take a while longer to appear on the Amazon App Store. The Windows Store (Minecraft PE is on Windows Phone now, remember?) also has a review process, but it's safe to say they get to skip it since they are owned by Microsoft.

I would estimate that the chances of being approved and released this week are not very likely, but still possible. So keep an eye out for updates these next few days.

Can't wait! Honestly though, I'll probably play it on creative for 5 minutes and never open it again until 0.12.0

Yeah that happens to me a lot, :P I'm hoping once better servers happen and controller support get's added that I'll end up playing it more.

Thanks to the PocketMine dev joining Mojang, that will probably get a lot better. In one update, severs show how many people are on, (I think) colored chat, skins, etc.
