  • iOS Devs Told They Can't Upload Apps through iTunes Connect After July 22nd



    Late last night, registered iOS developers began receiving email notifications from Apple indicating a big change is coming this Thursday, July 22nd. According to the message, developers can no longer submit or even update their apps (those available in the Apple App Store) through iTunes Connect.

    Beginning July 22, you will need to use Application Loader to submit your binary to iTunes Connect.
    Despite a longstanding preference by Apple to have devs submit and tweak their apps via the online iTunes Connect client, the native Mac application dubbed "Application Loader" shouldn't present too many obstacles to maintaining business as usual for developers. Of course, the move does strike some as particularly interesting if not arbitrary. But, in the big picture, the shift to app submissions through "Application Loader" should ultimately be well received, given its well known fast upload speeds along with other attributes that outpace iTunes Connect in terms of both stability and functionality.

    If you have installed iPhone SDK 3.2 or later, you can access Application Loader from the Utilities folder (/Developer/Applications/Utilities/Application Loader.app). You can also download Application Loader from iTunes Connect.
    Additionally, "Application Loader" is primed and ready for apps with the "in-app purchase" API, effectively helping developers take full advantage of the newer, more sophisticated components of iOS 4 and the increasingly lucrative opportunities that have been heavily promoted by Apple in recent weeks and months.

      They've only done it to stop people developing on windows. Why do the few who can't be bothered to buy a Mac have to ruin it for the rest of us...

      Because the new "applications loader" divides by zero and created a jailbreak black hole that swallowed most of the Dev-Team.

      It's not an issue of not being 'bothered to buy a Mac'. I imagine there are a lot of companies, big companies, who have a Windows based infrastructure and would like to develop iPhone apps. It's not as simplistic for them to tell their app dev area(s) to 'go buy a Mac'.

      Fanboy alert! Any logical person would agree that Apple is just anal about everything.

      I really don't know why Apple do this and make it difficult for people to design apps for them? also why they are trying their best to lock the phone? if it is easier to jailbreak the phone they will boost their sales.
      Also, they are making it harder for people to design for their platform... I see it stupid move, really.

      This is an anti-Windows move? The walls of this garden just got a little taller.

      I would say it's actually an anti-anything-but-Mac-OSX move. Constraining developers to focus on a single platform will do nothing but stifle the growth of ALL platforms - good devs will have to choose, or pick Apple and cross-compile to Android/WP7. Sounds like opening a big market to produce some OSX-based cross-platform dev tools, or throw up a big F-U to Apple altogether...
