Apple Announces iTunes Connect Holiday Closure

Apple’s iTunes Connect service for iOS app developers will be closed from December 23 through December 28. iTunes Connect is the system developers use to submit and manage apps that are available through Apple’s App Store.

Apple typically shuts down some of its services at the end of the year for a holiday break, then resumes activity just before the new year. Any apps set to go live on the App Store during the scheduled break won’t appear for customers until December 29.

App Store shoppers will still be able to purchase apps for their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch as usual during the down time.
