The last we heard, it was going to be a mid May release for the next update of Minecraft Pocket Edition. That may or may not happen now. It could turn out to be closer to the end of the month rather than the middle.
Johan Bernhardsson, Minecraft Pocket Edition developer, tweeted today, “One more annoying bug to fix before the submit, hopefully by the end of next week or early the next one.”
Keep in mind that it usually takes between one to two weeks for updates to go through Apple before being released through the app store. This will put the Realms update in our hands sometime between the third and fourth weeks of May, possibly even so far as the first week of June.
Unfortunately, it looks like we’re all going to be waiting just a bit longer before we can play on Minecraft Pocket Edition’s new Realms servers.
