The downtime came after an “intruder” accessed the development site’s servers on July 18. Apple acknowledged the issue on July 21 and at the time could not “rule out the possibility that some developers’ names, mailing addresses, and/or e-mail addresses may have been accessed.”
Apple slowly began restoring many of the offline services, and last week developers could access iOS and OS X betas, view prerelease documentation, download certificates, and watch videos from Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) sessions without worry. Apple sent out a status update on the remaining services on August 5, hoping “to reinstate most of the remaining services this week: Xcode automatic configuration as well as access to license agreements, TSIs, program enrollments, and renewals in Member Center.”
The company’s e-mail to developers today showed Apple made good on its promise:
We are pleased to let you know that all our developer program services are now online. Your patience during this time was sincerely appreciated.
We understand that the downtime was significant and apologize for any issues it may have caused in your app development. To help offset this disruption, we are extending the membership of all developer teams by one month. If you need any further assistance, please
