dev center

Apple began emailing developers last night, informing them that their Developer Website would be going offline on August 17th—that’s tonight—at 6PM PST for a “brief scheduled maintenance.”

The move comes exactly one week after Apple alerted developers that all of its remaining Dev Center services had been brought back online following a three week outage due to a security breach…

Here’s the email:

Apple doesn’t typically alert developers to upcoming Dev Center outages due to scheduled maintenance, but perhaps in wake of the recent security breach it felt that it should give folks a heads up.

On July 18, Apple detected an intruder attempting to secure information from its developer website. The attack led to a three week outage while the company overhauled and rebuilt its systems.

As a result of the downtime, there is now a Status Page that shows the status of Dev Center services.
