As Apple has done in past years, the company will be shutting down its iTunes Connect service on December 23 through 27. The company advises developers to make sure their apps are up to date by Thursday, December 22 as updates submitted afterwards will not be seen until December 28.
Developers looking to have updates during this period should have their apps submitted, approved, and scheduled in advanced. Other features such as developer account features will remain available during this five-day period.
The busiest season on the App Store is almost here. Make sure your apps are up-to-date and ready for the winter holidays. New apps and app updates will not be accepted December 23 to 27 (Pacific Time), so any releases should be submitted, approved and scheduled in advance.
