Apple ends $100 printer promo; solves code signing issues

updated 05:55 pm EST, Tue January 17, 2012

No reason given for end to printer deal

As of today Apple has put a stop to a $100 printer rebate offered alongside new Macs, says 9to5Mac. The information comes from a leaked internal support document. The memo does note, though, that people still have up to 90 days after their original date of purchase -- the last eligible date being January 16th -- to submit a rebate. "An additional 30 days will be given to correct invalid claims," Apple offers.

Still unclear is why Apple is ending the promotion, or if the decision is permanent. The company normally runs the promotion yearly. It may feel it no longer needs the rebate, or that demand for printers alongside Macs is too low to make it worthwhile.

9to5 separately mentions that Apple has issued an email to Mac and iOS developers, saying it has solved a problem with bad code signing certificates. "We have identified and resolved a recent issue with certificates for iOS and Mac code signing, Apple Push Notifications and Safari Extensions," the notice reads. "If you have experienced any problems with a certificate issued over the past 4 days, simply re-generate a new one." Developers have been complaining about the difficulty on Apple's support forums since Friday. Earlier today, there was a short outage at the company's Developer Center site, which may have been related to fixing the certificate problem.
