iTunes Holiday Shutdown

Important Information About Distributing Your Release During The Holiday Period

iTunes offices will be closed over the Christmas and New Year period. This will result in some changes to their normal turnaround times.

As a result of the winter shutdown;

  • No releases will go live and no updates will be processed on the iTunes store between December 21st and January 1st.
  • Any releases with a release date before December 21st or during the week commencing December 31st should be distributed no later than December 7th.
  • Any releases with a release date during week commencing January 7th should be distributed no later than December 14th (no later than December 7th is advisable.)

Please note that the above dates should be used for guidance only and that when adding your release for distribution, you should allow time for any checks we need to confirm with you, during processing, before we can proceed with distribution.

With the above in mind, we would highly recommend allowing as much lead in time as possible for your release during this period.
