Apple today made a pair of small announcements for developers and users. First off, the company has pushed a small update for the Apple Support app on iOS. Furthermore, Apple added new capabilities to Transporter, its command-line delivery tool…

The Apple Support app has been updated to version 2.1, bringing users “performance improvements and bug fixes.” It’s not a major update, but with a growing number of users accessing Apple Support due to the iPhone battery repair program, performance improvements are definitely welcomed.

Meanwhile, in a post on its developer blog, Apple announced that developers can now use Transporter to upload app previews to iTunes Connect. Apple explains:

Transporter integrates with your content management system to deliver your app metadata in bulk using XML, which is especially useful for adding and managing multiple localizations.

Here’s Apple’s description of what exactly Transporter is:

Transporter is Apple’s Java-based command-line tool to validate metadata and assets and deliver them directly to iTunes. Partners must be approved by the Transporter qualification process in order to use this delivery method.

Delivery methods Aspera and Signiant are incorporated to provide fast and reliable transportation.
