    Hi Guys,
    My App is Waiting For Review, because I have rejected it a few times
    while waiting for permission to use some copyrighted data.

    My developer program is due to expire in five days, or so Xcode thinks.
    I have actually renewed it, but haven't changed anything in Xcode to update it.

    Is there a problem for me if my App is not reviewed in the five days?

    I have read that it is easier to update Xcode after the old developer program expires.
    Cheers, Art.

    Not sure but I think it's not a problem. The code signing of your app is so that Apple can verify who submitted it. I assume that they check this immediately when the app is submitted. The code signing is later removed for apple's testing. They resign it with their own credentials. If it's approved it's resigned with Apple's credentials when downloaded by customers from the app store.

    I believe that if it passed validation then it's OK.

    FWIW, you should be able to refresh your certificate and provisioning profiles now that you're so close to the expiration date.

    Thanks, that is what Ive read before, that they strip your information from it and sign it themselves, and nothing more.

    The App was reviewed after expiration, and was approved, so looks like this is correct.
