After closing the site, Apple said that "we're completely overhauling our developer systems, updating our server software, and rebuilding our entire database." On Thursday, the tech titan said it had resumed iTunes Connect and Bug Reporter. Apple has created a status page so that developers can watch which functions are coming back on line.
This is an important time for Apple to have the site up and running with its new iOS 7 expected to rollout in the not too distant future. The revamped UI removed the glossy, bright colors, replacing them with flat pastel shades. Gone are the skeumorphic icons like leather bound book covers and wooden shelves.
