iTunes Connect reopens a day early, price changes start propagating

The message shown to developers until today

Although Apple said iTunes Connect would be shut down from Dec. 22 until Dec. 29, Apple put the website back up today – one day early. iTunes Connect is the portal for Apple iOS and Mac developers where they can upload and submit new applications, make changes to their App Store pages, obtain promotional codes, check sales reports, and more.

Apple application developers typically see sales increases due to the jump in iOS device sales during the holidays. A report from yesterday claimed that Apple saw 12 times its typical iOS device activation statistic on Christmas Day alone.

Additionally, some developers have reported, in the last couple of days, that its price changes scheduled for Dec. 25 have started to appear. Price changes were delayed from appearing on Christmas Day, but have still begun appearing before Apple’s previously noted reopen date for App Store submissions and changes.
