Apple has informed developers that between Dec. 21 and Dec. 28, they will be shutting down iTunes Connect. This means that developers won’t be able to update or release apps on those days.
Apple employees are going to avoid a nice little vacation for the holidays.
Here’s an email sent out to developers from Apple:
“iTunes Connect will be temporarily shut down from Friday, December 21, 2012 to Friday, December 28, 2012, for the winter holidays.
Additionally, the following will be delayed:
Releases scheduled to appear on the App Store for the first time
Pricing changes scheduled through the interval pricing system in iTunes Connect”
According to CultofMac, Apple did the same last year, but from December 22nd until the 29th.
