After a few weeks of outage, Apple has finally restored the developer site post hack. Since the middle of July, a security intrusion of the Apple developer site rendered a slew of tools for both iOS as well as Mac OS X developers inaccessible, and after a nice three week “sabbatical”, Apple has finally restored their developer site to working order. Since last Monday, Apple did mention that that it was a matter of days before Cupertino is able to restore the remaining “down services” at the site, and Apple also did reassure that the security intrusion was “not associated with any customer information.”
Well, developers would most certainly did not enjoy the entire outage period, as it would have left them in suspended animation to say the least, since they are left unable to equip new devices in order to have them run pre-release versions of Apple’s software or to try out new apps. Apart from that, the downtime was also untimely, since Apple was working hard to have developers to test and create software for the future versions of iOS and Mac OS X, where both of them are tipped to arrive in the coming fall which ain’t too far away. Were you one of those who were affected by the outage over at the Apple Developer site?
