Apple to restore more Developer Center services this week

Following its unwelcome downtime a couple of weeks back, the developer center has been going through a somewhat slow recovery period after being hacked. And, while the Dev Center became available again last week, it’s still not fully operational. With that in mind, the company’s been emailing its developers and reassuring them that work is ongoing and that a handful of other services will be operational within the next week.

We sincerely appreciate your patience as we work to bring our developer program services back online, and we want to give you an update on our progress. The majority of our developer services are currently online, including Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles, Dev Centers, software downloads, Videos, Apple Developer Forums, iTunes Connect, Bug Reporter, App Store Resource Center, and access to pre-release documentation.

We plan to reinstate most of the remaining services this week: Xcode automatic configuration as well as access to license agreements, TSIs, program enrollments, and renewals in Member Center. You can check the availability of these systems on our status page.

As a reminder, if your membership was set to expire during this downtime, it has been extended and your apps will remain on the App Store and Mac App Store.

We apologize for the significant inconvenience that our downtime has caused and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you need any assistance.

We’ll keep you updated as we hear more, but be sure to keep an eye on Apple’s new developer center status page.
