Apple Finally Gives A Statement On Why The Dev Center Has Been Down For The Last 2 Days

If you are a registered Apple developer and have tried to login to the Apple Dev Center the last couple of days you have probably ran into some issues. Don’t worry though, you aren’t alone in this matter. The Apple Dev Center, the portal where developers can access various resources such as downloads, documentation etc., has actually been down for the last 48 hours.

Considering that Apple charges a $99 subscription fee for access to the dev center… it is safe to say that developers are getting frustrated. Especially because Apple has only just issued a statement on the matter.

If you now try to visit the dev center you will be returned with the following message:

Apple Dev Center Outage July 2013

We’ll be back soon. We apologize that maintenance is taking longer than expected. If your program membership was set to expire during this period, it has been 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 patience.

At this time it is unclear just what kind of maintenance is taking place, but considering it has already been offline for 48, it shouldn’t be long until we find out. Any predictions? Drop us a line in the comments section.

    Maybe they are uploading some things as far as ios betas. Just a guess.

    Maybe they’re pulling a longhorn, and starting development over from scratch on iOS 7, because they realized it’s a mess, like MIcrosoft did with Vista, halfway through development xD

    iOS 7 is amazing….VIsta was BS

    The ideas and features are nice, sure.
    The design is terrible.
    The coding could really use work, such as extreme optimisation.
    Plus, they may just be redesigning their sites to reflect the new designs.

    Don’t talk about Vista being BS.
    It wasn’t BS.
    BS is better than Vista
