    Hello,I have experience with programing languages like: C#,C++ and Objective-c and I would like to publish my apps to the AppStore.
    But problem is that I am 14 years old...
    Yes, I have bank account ( for kids ),but next year I will get student bank account.
    Its possible to publish apps in 14 years on my personal bank account and my personal AppleID ?

    I know that there is some age restriction and that 14 is under it. There have been a few threads on this subject, which I've mostly ignored. Apparently the reason for the age restriction is that underaged persons can't be legally bound to signed contracts.

    The two possible ways around this issue I think are to either have your parent sign up for a developer account, or create a company and sign that up for a developer account.

    If Apple didn't restrict iOS distribution to the App Store, then you'd be free to publish your apps by other means, just as OS X developers are.

    I hope to see someone in your age group respond with experience in working around this issue.

    I'm 15, I have my developer account linked to my parent's bank account. They also have to sign all the contracts, handle taxes etc. Make sure it's ok with them.
