I have submitted an app to the app store about a week ago. As far as I can tell, it wasn't reviewed yet.

Today my team discovered a bug in the app we've sent. It's not critical, but I would be very happy to have it in the store without it.

If I submit a fixed app before my app has been previewed, will my app be moved to the back of the review queue?

I found no direct reference to this question in the app store review process manual.

To submit a new build of an app for review, the current build must be removed from review. This sets the status to Developer Rejected, which is equivalent to a review rejection. Once you have changed the build, you can submit it for review once again, which will put it at the back of the queue.

Removing a build removes your app version from Apple’s review queue and changes its status to Developer Rejected. When you resubmit your app, the review process starts over from the beginning.
