Every year, Apple shuts down the App Store (and iBooks, and Newsstand, and iTunes) to new content in order for staff to have a few days to celebrate the holidays with their families. It isn’t a big deal. Developers are giving warning. However, it means no content will be able to have price changes or updates during that time.
According to an email sent to MacStories founder Federico Viticci [via: TUAW], the last day to submit updates and changes in iTunes Connect, iTunes Producer, and iTunes Connect for iOS is Dec. 22. The site will remain closed until Dec. 29, at which time developers will be able to make changes and updates again.
