iTunes Connect Holiday Shutdown

As a reminder, Apple has had an iTunes Connect Holiday Shutdown the last several years. If you plan to schedule app releases or other changes in December that require Zebra to perform White Listing for you, please be aware that iTunes Connect will probably be shutdown.


While Apple has not yet announced the dates this year, we estimate that the shutdown will occur for a similar timeframe as previous years. The Zebra White Listing team still needs to perform the required analysis of your app and has traditionally received a large volume of apps during this time, which creates a backlog. Please keep this in mind when planning your application development cycles.


We would appreciate submissions by the first week of December to allow us to manage the review of all apps.


Apple has announced the dates of iTunes Connect holiday shutdown as December 22-29.
