Apple says most Developer Center services to be restored by this week

Apple today sent out a mail to registered developers informing them that most Developer Center services should be online by the end of this week. The iOS dev center was taken down over a security breach discovered by a researcher, and while the company restored critical services within a week, a number of services still remain offline.

Apple says that Xcode automatic configuration, license agreements, Technical Support Incidents, program enrollments, and renewals — services which are currently offline — should by restored by this week.

Here’s Apple’s email:

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.

As these services come back online, Apple’s Developer Center System Status page should be updated to reflect their status.
