New Twitter iOS app features leak

updated 01:21 pm EDT, Mon July 9, 2012

New previews, push notification tech coming

Release notes for a forthcoming update of the Twitter iOS app, v4.3, have leaked through iOS 6's redesigned App Store, according to 9to5Mac. The notes say, for instance, that content previews including images and video should be shown for tweets linking to unspecified "partner websites." Tweets about "selected events" will meanwhile be highlighted, with Twitter itself curating posts and images. In terms of notifications, people should be able to receive push alerts when a specific person has tweeted, and subtle Tweetbot-style notifications while in-app.

Tapping a person's avatar should finally take users to a profile page, and the Discover tab will alert people to new content. The Connect tab is expected to feature improvements to autocomplete; conversely, when dealing with authentication problems, users will be able to manually type in their passwords.

Some miscellaneous changes include "personalized trends," better performance, Hungarian support, and a collection of bugfixes. It should also sport a new logo, as seen in the current beta of iOS 6. When the v4.3 update might launch is unknown, but the last such App Store leak -- involving Instagram -- reportedly saw a release come 10 days later.
