Apple's Developer Center has been down for more than a day now, with no word from Apple on the reason behind the outage. MacRumors first began receiving reports of the downtime on July 18, at approximately 7:30 a.m. PT.

devcenteroutage
Since that time, developers have been unable to access the site and cannot visit the forums or download Mac or iOS SDKs, the iOS 7 beta, or the Mavericks beta. Though the Developer Center is offline, Apple's developer site is still accessible.

While the Dev Center often experiences downtime, many developers have stated on Twitter that the length of the outage is unusual. At this time, there is no indication of when the Developer Center might come back online. "This site is undergoing maintenance for an extended period today," reads the text. "Thanks for your patience."

Update: Apple has updated the notice on its Developer Center site, noting that developer memberships set to expire during the outage will be extended.

We apologize that maintenance is taking longer than expected.
If your program membership was set to expire during this period, it has been extended and your app will remain on the App Store. If you have any other concerns about your account, please contact us.

Thank you for your patience.

Just a side note: the WWDC session videos are also unavailable. :(

I wonder if someone cracked into their servers and did something malicious?

More importantly, why is that hideous skeuomorphic linen background still there? :p

It needs a touch of iOS 7

The fact that there still has been no official statement from Apple on the outage just goes to show how toothless the "tech journalism" industry has become.

These so-called journalists (Gruber, Dalrymple, Laporte, etc.) trip over one another as they rush to tell us all about the latest iToys.

Yet when real news happens at 1 Infinite Loop, we hear little more from them than, "The Developer Center is down. Yep."

Pathetic.

Sorry but when you refer to Apple products as "iToys" your rant loses credibility.

WOW!

You couldn't possibly be more wrong. This is a VERY BIG DEAL. They also have bankcard information, passwords, and other things.

You don't seem bothered, but many of us are deeply concerned.

I can only hope these hackers were unsuccessful in their efforts.

There will be more to follow.

Stay tuned.

Did you not read the email? They didn't get bank card info, passwords etc.

Updating their Server software.

Why does that sound funny.
