Apple’s Dev Center back online after over a week of downtime


After more than a week of downtime, Apple’s Dev Center is finally back online. We’ve received several tips from developers informing us they are able to login to the iOS and Mac Dev Center.

Apple was forced to take its developer website down after a security breach last Thursday.

On Thursday Apple outlined plans on how it plans to bring back the developer website back online, and had also rolled out the system status page to provide the availability of the developer systems.

According to the system status page, a number of developer services such as Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles are back online, however, services such as Apple Developer Forums, App Store Resource Center still remain offline.

Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles Now Available

We appreciate your patience as we work to bring our developer services back online. Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles, software downloads, and other developer services are now available. If you would like to know the availability of a particular system, visit our status page.

If your program membership expired or is set to expire during this downtime, it will be extended and your app will remain on the App Store. If you have any other concerns about your account, please contact us.

Thank you for bearing with us while we bring these important systems back online. We will continue to update you on our progress.


Now that the Dev Center is back online we expect Apple to release betas for iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks soon. We won’t be surprised if Apple releases them over the weekend to avoid any delays in releasing the software updates later this fall.

Thanks everyone for the tip!
