Apple patches iOS 6 App Store bug that leaked upcoming app updates

Last night, we broke the news that the iOS 6 App Store includes a bug that leaks upcoming App Store app updates. The bug’s first victim, Twitter, led to a major reveal, but we followed up with some smaller updates (sent in by readers) such as an upcoming Instagram update with bug fixes. Now, it appears that mentions of future app updates (and the app release notes) have disappeared from the iOS 6 App Store. We’re glad to see Apple working to patch this up in a timely manner.
