Wait times for resubmitting your app to apple?

Hi all

So after 15 long days, my app was reviewed today, and swiftly rejected because it had 3 buttons with 'coming soon' on them, advertising the next content updates.

I've removed this and resent the App. Just curious if the wait time is quicker for a re-review or about the same as I have just experienced because 15 days is just bull!

    @jigglybean Unfortunately, I believe you go back to the end of the line. However, I have had one app rejected and then approve in the same day after resubmitting.

    Generally you can expect the wait to be similar to an app that is being submitted for the first time. Not cool.

    Unfortunately, if you don't have a good reason for them to expedite the process, you are stuck waiting for them to review your app again.

    This has happened to me multiple times and it sucks! But it has also taught me to thoroughly test my apps before submitting.

    The iwatch is coming out so I'm sure that's a good reason why they are taking so long. A lot of people are making apps and updating they current apps for iWatch compatibility. I forsee the review time declining back to around a week after the watch loses press.

    That is annoying. So much for releasing this month, let alone this week. Such a silly reason as well.

    Because Apple has such strict guidelines (at least for certain aspects of apps), I believe they review each update as though it's a new app. You can imagine that people might try to sneak all sorts of things into updated apps that weren't in the original app submissions. It's not Apple can just say "oh, I see they fixed the Play button on the first scene so this is approved for the App Store now." I think they have to test it thoroughly again.
