App Store Connect remains open during the holiday period

on 

Good news!

This year, Apple won’t be closing down the App Store to developer submissions over the holidays, as it has in previous years. This marks the first time Apple has kept the App Store Connect platform open through the holiday season. For example, last year, App Store Connect was closed from December 23rd to December 27th. 

This is great news for developers who can keep submitting new apps or updates. 
However, Apple does warm that during this busy time, reviews might take longer. 

For your GoodBarber iOS app, we do recommend to have your app ready for submission before December 23rd to avoid any delays in your publication. 

This applies to apps distributed to the general public on the App Store, and to Custom Apps distributed via Apple Business Manager.

If your iOS app is distributed internally outside of the App Store via an Enterprise account, this has no impact for you
