The second iTunes Connect holiday shutdown scheduled for 2012
iOS and OS X developers making a buck in Apple’s App Stores are being reminded that iTunes Connect will be off-limits during December 21–28.The announcement comes through Apple’s dedicated channel for developer news and states, “As a reminder, iTunes Connect will shut down December 21–28 for the winter holidays.”
Both mobile and desktop application sellers are being advised not to schedule any pricing changes or binary updates during the shutdown. The same goes for in-app purchases, says the Mac maker.
“You should not schedule pricing changes that take effect during the shutdown — these changes will not be reflected on the App Store and your apps or In-App Purchase items will become unavailable until after the shutdown,” according to the announcement.
“In addition, releases that are scheduled to go live between these dates will be delayed,” Apple states.
In other words, all developers who may have an update lined up should hurry up and submit it for approval should they want it out in the iOS / Mac App Store before December 21.
