Apple has been slowly restoring their Developer Center, and today the company has sent out an email update to developers regarding the restorations to take place 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.

Apple’s Developer Center went down a little bit over two weeks ago due to an attempted breach into the system. The site began coming back about a week after that, starting with downloads and documentation. In order to provide developers with information on the restoration progress, Apple rolled out an iCloud-like status page.


Xcode auto-configuration now live:

  1. Don’t swallow everything Apple feeds you. The developer site MAY be up for some developers but, for many, it’s completely inaccessible and has been since Apple claims it was hacked.
    Apple knows there are lots of devs who can’t get in, and they have even telephoned some (me) but they say there’s nothing they can do yet — no fix and no work-around. That’s the REAL story, not the damn press release.
