It’s that time again when the trees get lit up and the good folks who run iTunes Connect get a little breather. Although, this year’s shutdown is a little bit different.
First thing’s first, dates. This year’s holiday shutdown will start on Tuesday, December 22nd, and last until Wednesday, December 29th.
What’s different this year is that most of iTunes Connect will actually remain available. This includes all areas we particularly care about, which means you’ll be getting your reports regularly. We’re not sure if there will be any delays, but recommend keeping an eye on our iTunes Connect Status Page for real-time updates.
What you should be aware of is that you won’t be able to submit any new apps, in-app purchases, or app bundles. In addition, you won’t be able to make any changes to your app’s meta data. This includes price changes, so if you’ve got a promotion in mind you should make the change right away.

We’ll be around this week so don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
