Apple Adds App Approval Time And More to iPhone Dev Site

Assorted reports from several iPhone developers indicate that Apple is currently showcasing two key features on the iPhone Dev Center web site. The first feature is a queue status graphic that lets users know how long their approval wait will be. The second one is the presence of a new ‘all issues’ escalation email address, so developers with urgent bug fixes that need to be prioritized can get their questions answered.

Per TUAW, this email channel has apparently been open for a week or two, but is now being publicized on the front page.

Several developer tips have also been updated in the past 24 hours, including notes on the keywording/tagging options and walkthroughs on changing your app name and assigning/adjusting the app’s rating.
