How long should an update take to get approved?

I've submitted my first update to Apple of my app Tic Tac Toe Ten over 2 weeks ago and I haven't received any reply or response to my email queries. Does anyone have experience in this area or have an idea of a standard length of time that would be a good rule of thumb concerning updates to your iPhone games?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Until recently, every initial app release and update I've submitted (Card Shark Solitaire, Karate Fighter, Xiangqi, Bug Juice, etc.) has been approved in about 6 working days.

I'm in the same boat as you with my most recently submitted updates (over 2 weeks delay) - I'm quite sure it is because Apple's priority at the moment is the OS3.0 release and associated infrastructure. I don't think it's anything to worry about.

You > idiot = ban, very, very soon

1) Tried out AT&T tethering and did not have enough money for the pole.
2) Apple still hasn't fixed the no-hardware-keyboard bug.
3) Still can't use the "Cut" function on the AT&T bill...current 4.x issues

Same experience as Stroffolino, very annoying as I've now been waiting longer than the development time for my update and other updates for some devs are going through in a matter of days, but there are lots of us stuck waiting for about 2 weeks at the moment.

Thanks for the input . . . I figure it's really hectic at Apple right now post WWDC and all the stuff they've just released . . . I'll continue to wait patiently as that's all I can do at the moment.

Just a reminder. Before you start anything, make a backup copy of an entire working copy. After that, probaby some tools can help you with that.

You didnt say what OS this is on?
