    Each year, Apple shuts down iTunes Connect for a week around the holidays to give its App Store staff time off from work. This year, iTunes Connect will be shut down from December 23 to December 27.

    While iTunes Connect is shuttered, Apple will not accept new apps or app updates, so all price changes and app submissions will need to be locked in before that date.

    Developers often offer sales and promotions ahead of when the App Store closes for the holidays, and those sales remain available until the App Store re-opens in late December.

    Apple says developers can let customers know about promotions, upcoming features, and in-app events using the promotional text field available in iOS 11.

    While app store submissions will be unavailable, other iTunes Connect tools will remain accessible to developers throughout the holiday period.

    Unrelated, but I wish they didn't stop that 12 days of Christmas thing.

    They do every year. Not a big deal. We live through it each year.

    Means a lull in the people who love to complain that Facebook doesn't list super detailed change log notes with their latest app update. Oh the horror!

    Will the position of an app in the "charts" be frozen too?

    No. That’s automated and changes at least hourly from what I’ve seen.

    I haven't seen people complain about this in >4 years. Where are they?

    What I could go without is members griping about other members in every . single . thread.

    The people of MacRumors and other sites aren't the average user. The average user doesn't go online and complain. They just deal with it. The average user doesn't sit around talking about Apple and rumors. If they did, this site would be far far bigger from the hundreds of millions of Apple users.

    I fail to see how iTunes Connect shutting down for the holidays and bugs in MacOS/iOS are related...

    They probably should send Connect to join Ping in the social network graveyard.
