Apple Developer System Status

July 24, 2013

Apple has created status page for its Developer Website as reveal in emails sent to registered Apple Developer.

Apple Developer System Status Update

We apologize for the significant inconvenience caused by our developer website downtime. We’ve been working around the clock to overhaul our developer systems, update our server software, and rebuild our entire database. While we complete the work to bring our systems back online, we want to share the latest with you.

We plan to roll out our updated systems, starting with Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles, Apple Developer Forums, Bug Reporter, pre-release developer libraries, and videos first. Next, we will restore software downloads, so that the latest betas of iOS 7, Xcode 5, and OS X Mavericks will once again be available to program members. We’ll then bring the remaining systems online. To keep you up to date on our progress, we’ve created a status page to display the availability of our systems.

If your program membership is set to expire during this period, 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 your continued patience.



As of this posting, Bug Reporter has just gone online.

Apple took down its Developer Website due to a hacking attempt on late Thursday July 18, 2013. Ibrahim Balic, a Turkish security researcher, believes that he is responsible for the intrusion that resulted in the downtime at Apple Developer Center.

While Apple is working to bring the Developer Webcite back online, Apple seeded OS X Mavericks Developer Preview 4 through Software Update. Apple has yet seeded iOS 7 beta 4 which was expected for release on Monday July 22, 2013 for its previous two-week release cycle. Apple has the mean to distribute iOS 7 beta 4 via Over The Air (OTA) software update. Apple prefers to distribute iOS 7 beta ipsw to developers along the OTA software update.
