Apple Developer Update: The Majority of Services Will Be Back Online This Week
After the eight-day outage of Apple’s Developer Center, the company is making efforts to restore service. Today Apple sent out an e-mail to inform developers about the work in progress:
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.
The Developer Center was the target of a hacker attack designed to extract personal information from developers. Apple immediately took the website down, and notified developers about the intrusion.
After the Developer Center was put back online, Apple provided a new system status page. Some services are online but Member Center, XCode Automatic Configurations, Program Enrollment and Renewals and Technical Support are still down. This has affected the work of some developers.
