Apple Provides Developer Center Status
The Apple Developer Center has been out for six days now and it seems like Apple is finally starting to put things back online. When you go to the member center you are now greeted with a different message providing you with their plan of what they will put back in service when. They will begin with their updated systems, including Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles, Apple Developer Forums, Bug Reporter, pre-release developer libraries, and videos. Next, they will restore software downloads so developers will have access to the betas of iOS 7, Xcode 5, and OS X Mavericks. Finally, they will bring the remaining systems back on the site.
“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.”
In addition to that they have created a status page showing the status of a particular service. The page will let you know if the service is still down or back up. If it is back, you can then click the service and it will take you to the page. As of right now iTunes Connect and the Bug Reporter are back and the other 13 are still down.
