I visited the Mojang offices a few days ago, seeking secrets, wealth and free stuff. Wealth mainly. Of those secrets divulged, I can reveal one today - an official iPhone and iPad version of Minecraft is currently in the works.

As I've reported over on sister site Gamasutra, the port is being handled by Aron Neiminen, a new addition to the Mojang squad, and is due for release sometime later this year. The touch-screen version won't receive all of the same updates as the PC and Mac editions, but rather will get the updates that "make sense", according to Notch aka Markus Persson.

There'll be more coming over the next couple of weeks from my trip to Sweden, so make sure you watch out for it.
