Pebble Time's iOS app hasn't been approved by Apple yet

The iOS faithful who already received their shiny new Pebble Time smartwatches are likely more than a little disappointed. The wearable is shipping to Kickstarter backers, but there's one big problem: the Pebble Time Watch iOS app hasn't been approved by Apple yet. Despite pushing minor bug fixes for approval on May 22nd, and asking that the folks in Cupertino fast-track the request, the software needed to get the gadget up and running isn't in the App Store. Even though a version of the app was approved on May 18th, it can't be released "due to quirks in the App Store submission process and rules."

The company says it considered adding features for the Time to the existing Pebble iPhone app, but a new version of that software has been waiting on approval for over a month. For now, Pebble advises owners to find a pal with an Android device to sort the initial setup, and to bug Apple about the issue. You still won't be able to leverage any apps that require the device to be paired with a smartphone, though, and that's a major bummer.

We reached out to Apple on the matter and we'll be sure to update this post if he hear back.
