After the break in of the developer center not too long ago, Apple engineers has been working hard to get everything back online. While this is a big inconvenience to developers, Apple has confirmed before that they will extend the membership of those who affected by this downtime.
Today, Apple has released a public notice telling everyone what their plan is. According to the developer system status page, mostly all important services are back online already. In an email sent out to developers (below), Apple states that it is working hard and should be able to restore services this 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 will keep you posted as to when everything is back online. Until then, keep your eyes on the system status page for latest updates.
