Apple has reopened its iTunes Connect developer portal following the Christmas period closure — during which it gave respite to the gatekeepers whose job it is to manually approve new apps and updates.
Developers can now get back to changing prices, posting app updates, debuting new titles, and otherwise managing and/or analyzing app sales.
Apple sent out an email on Friday revealing that the service was back online.
Newsstand magazine updates also resumed with the re-opening of the portal.
