    It appears that Apple is slowly bringing its Developer Center online after more than a week of outage. Several developers have notified MacRumors that they are now able to enter the site and reports on Twitter confirm that the Developer Center is once again accessible. Earlier this week, Apple outlined a plan for restoring functionality to the site.

    According to the new status page, several systems are up and running, including Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles, Software Downloads, Safari Dev Center, iOS Dev Center, and Mac Dev Center. Other areas of the site, including the technical support sections and the forums, are still offline at this time.

    Apple's Developer Center first went offline last Thursday, and on Sunday, Apple revealed that it had been taken down as a precaution after a security breach. It is unclear who was responsible for the hacking, but a security researcher has suggested that he might be to blame for the outage.

    Apple has been "working around the clock" on a complete overhaul of its developer systems since the Developer Center was taken down and has noted that developer memberships and apps set to expire during the outage will be given an extension to account for the significant downtime.

    While the developer portal looks largely the same, it is likely that sweeping internal changes have been implemented. After news of the security breach, Apple said that it was completely overhauling its developer system, updating server software, and rebuilding its entire database.

    Well they've certain lost data. I've lost a handful of devices I registered a week before the incident and several provisioning profiles I created.

    I've even lost App IDs I've setup. A bit worrying...

    Sweet can we have beta 4 now? i'm tired of not being able to answer calls.

    edit: in all seriousness, it'll probably come monday, hopefully with greater map support.

    Personally, I think it was always slated for the 29th, but who knows. Glad the dev center is back.

    So I guess we'll see iOS 7 Beta 4 on Monday then.

    Shows just how dependent the Apple developer community has become of on-line certificates and the like. IMO, this is a big wake-up call to many who are dependent on Internet connections for day to day developer work.

    This is great. Everything is being done so systematically. It's really nice to see how Apple is handling the situation and updating us like this.

    The Mac and iOS member centers are up, according to the status page. (And according to reality too, I'm currently browsing them.)

    Think you're talking about the dev centers not the member center
