The upcoming version of official Twitter app for iOS has leaked in the App Store prior to it’s launch. There seems to be a major glitch in the new App Store of iOS 6 that is some how displaying the details about an unreleased update on the App’s description page. The unannounced version 4.3 of Twitter for iOS is now expected to land for everyone in the coming days. The update brings a new icon for the app among other useful features displaying the new logo and can be considered a major one as it brings several changes to the app. The new update will make viewing tweets from the app a more interactive experience for users, and now users will be able to preview content including photos and videos from within the tweets.
Twitter has also included auto complete improvements to the connect tab, that will be similar to the auto complete search for users the company rolled out for the desktop site. Here is a summerized version of the notes by 9to5Mac, leaked in iOS 6′s App Store.
