App reviews slow?

I submitted a couple updates to iPhone only apps and after a week it is still waiting for a review. I'm wondering if Apple reviews favors iPad/universal apps or new apps right now? ~Todd

Waited a week for my update that changed my iPhone app to universal. Thought it was b/c they needed to test it twice so it took longer.

Things are kinda slow right now, you're fine though, just slow approval.

We've been waiting 5-6 days to get "in-review" - what a hassle, especially for updates!

Reviews often slow down before a major event. I suspect its because extra items are going through testing ahead of WWDC. Apple might be doing re-tests on a bunch of apps to check they're OS4 compliant. That happened when OS3 was about to be released.

Thanks everyone, it took my app 6 days to get into the In Review status. I had gotten use to the In Review in 6 minutes I was seeing prior to iPad launch. Just need more patience... Interesting thoughts on 4.0 and WWDC and that certainly makes sense. Cheers, Todd

mine got rejected after 8 days waiting in line and now I'm back to the end of the line >< it funny to think the review process actually takes 3 times longer than the production.

We have just published our first game, and it seemed to take ages at first - we were 'Waiting for Review' for 5 days, then went to 'In Review' and only a day later, the game was released! It appears that the actual review process is fast - it's just the wait to go into review that takes a while.

All Apps just get placed in a que, depending how big the que is determines the speed...

I imagine theres a lot of people currently submitting iPad apps for the 2nd release date (in europe) on the 28th of May, so that'll be making it a very long que at the moment I'd expect...
