The Minecraft: Pocket Edition Update Won't Be Coming Today
Unfortunately, it looks like there'll be a bit of a wait.
Looks like there's still going to be a little bit of wait when it comes to Minecraft Pocket Edition's release. The updates were scheduled for today, but a recent tweet by Jens Bergenstein states that update 0.12 will be released when both Android and iOS versions are ready, but unfortunately it looks like they're still waiting for review.
Right now that means the release of the update is still up in the air, so if you were looking forward to spending some time with the game after the long weekend and getting some new updates, unfortunately you'll still be waiting a while. Hopefully this doesn't mean an entire extra week, but the wait is gonna have been so worth it when the game actually does release. Trust me - you're really going to love having all that extra stuff.
