How long does apple take to review an update of a game?

I was just wondering if apple takes the same time as approving a new app (7-10 days) to review the update of the game or when its an update it takes less time..

    There's a page that shows the status in the iPhone Developer Center.

    my update took a week to go into review then a week to be approved and it was a minor bug fix. So in my experience it was the same as submitting a new app.

    You must have changed an available date or something cause price changes happen almost instantly.

    As far as updates they seem to be different than new submissions I normally go into review after a couple days but then am in review much longer than the original.

    There was a similar discussion here:

    Approval times for updates are on average faster than app approval. Usually the "Waiting for Review" time is about the same, but the "In Review" can take up to a few minutes if it's not a major update.

    I have several games, English and dutch, but every game i published has a total of 7 or 8 days, from upload binairy to ready for sale in the app store.

    And from "in review to ready for sale" is different.
    Sometimes it takes 6 days, other times it takes 20 minutes to 2,5 hours before the approval to itunes.
