Apple has revealed when the App Store will be closed to developers this holiday season. The company takes its digital store offline for app submissions and updates over the festive period to allow staff some much-deserved time off. The exact dates as to when developers will have no access to the submission process is between December 22-29.

The company urges developers to get their apps and updates into the pipeline before December 22, ensuring availability for when new users pick up their iPad or iPhone for the first time. As well as the friendly reminder, Apple also revealed the App Store crossing 100 billion cumulative downloads.

"Revenue from the App Store increased 25% year over year, and the number of transacting customers grew 18%, setting a new all-time record. We want to thank you for all your hard work and dedication to our platforms."

Be sure to mark the days in your calendars, developers!
