iTunes Connect Shutting Down Over The Holidays

iTunes Connect, the platform that lets developers submit apps, will be temporarily shut down from Thursday, December 22 to Thursday, December 29 for the winter holidays.

Apple is shutting down access to iTunes Connect and publishers won’t be able to submit any books or updates during that time period. There will also be delays on releases scheduled to appear on the iBookstore for the first time, as well as on pricing changes scheduled through the interval pricing system in iTunes Connect.

The iBookstore team writes in an email to iTunes Connect users: “ We strongly recommend that you do not schedule pricing changes through the interval pricing system in iTunes Connect that would take effect from December 22 through December 29. Pricing changes scheduled to take effect during this date range will not be reflected in the iBookstore and the book will become unavailable for purchase. We also recommend that you do not schedule any books to go live during the shutdown. Releases scheduled with a sales start date between these dates will not go live until after the shutdown.”
