Apple Developer Account—Latest News


Big news for those who have, or are planning to get an Apple Developer Account.

From now on, you won't have to manually renew your subscription each time it's up. Apple recently decided to implement an automatic renewal system for the Developer Program subscription, which means one less thing for you to worry about!

You may think this isn't such a big deal, but think again. Maybe it hasn't happened to you, but I've seen many a developer have their app unexpectedly removed from the App Store, just because they forgot to renew their contract. Luckily, this is no longer a risk—you don't have to worry anymore about losing users just because of a moment of forgetfulness.

How do I activate it?

When in the process of signing up or renewing your Developer Account subscription, an automatic renewal option will appear. All you have to do is check this box.

Unfortunately we can't have it all, you will still have to remember to renew your certificates—they won't benefit from this update.
