Developers can again initiate sales, updates, see reports
Like last year, the iTunes Connect page for iOS and OS X app developers has returned to duty a day ahead of its posted schedule. Just before Christmas, Apple had posted a notice that the service would be down from December 21 to 28, but actually returned to service late on December 27. The return means that developers can again post updates, put on (or end) sale prices, monitor holiday download numbers and other revenue stats, and debut new products.
During the holiday, no price changes, updates or app launches were allowed until the service came back on-line. Program descriptions, price changes (including in-app purchase price changes), and updates are now available, along with developer access to daily and weekly sales trackers and financial reports.
