apple 220x83 Dont expect any new apps, updates or price changes on Apples App Store from December 21 27Apple’s App Store approval process will be taking its annual Christmas break between December 21 and December 27 this year, the company has revealed to developers.

In an email sent out in the past few hours, the company notes that developers will not be able to submit apps or in-app purchases for approval during this week. Also, any apps or pricing changes scheduled to go live that week will be delayed until after December 27. So, as usual you can feel free to take a break from those regular checks of the App Store’s Updates tab over Christmas – or just get really stressed that there’s nothing new to download; whatever floats your boat.
