Apple’s Developer Center Outage Causing Some Developers to See App Review Delays

Apple’s Developer Center Outage Causing Some Developers to See App Review Delays

Apple continues to bring its Developer Center back online after a week long outage, and some developers are reporting that they’ve received emails from the company warning them of a potential delay for app reviews.


An excerpt from one of the letters, via MacRumors:

“We are currently reviewing an app that you submitted for inclusion on the App Store, and want to let you know that the review process will require additional time. We apologize for the delay and will provide you with an update on the status of your app as soon as possible.”

While such letters aren’t uncommon, given the amount of time the Developer Center was offline, it would lead you to believe that Apple does have a backlog of app reviews to work through.

One developer reports receiving the email after waiting six days for a review. After waiting another five days, he has yet to have his app approved. It was not reported if there were other issues with his app, as other developers have reported their apps have been approved at a faster pace.

Many developers in the forums report experiencing no delays at all.

The Apple Developer Center went offline Thursday July 18, and it was revealed several days later that the outage was the result of a security breach.

Late last week, Apple outlined a plan for bringing the site back online, and began bringing it back up on Friday. The majority of Developer Center functions are up and running. However, the Member Center, Technical Support, Program Enrollment and Renewals, and Xcode Automatic Configuration remain down as of this post.

    Weird. My company submitted an App update for a client, which usually takes a little less time to review than a new app, but still has a normal turn around of 4-5 days and it got approved in a matter of hours. Literally we submitted in the morning and in the evening the update was out.
