"If your Apple Developer Program membership is valid, your existing apps on the App Store will not be affected. However, you will no longer be able to upload new apps or updates signed with the expired or revoked certificate to the App Store." - Apple
Certificates issued by Apple are for one year at a time, and a new distribution certificate will be required to upload apps/updates once the previous one expires. If you receive an email, here are next steps:
- The email from Apple will detail the type of certificate expiring, and how long you have before it does; our Mobile App team needs this heads up to renew the certificate.
- Forward the email to email@example.com.
- Our support team will then review and send the ticket over to our Mobile App team, who will take the appropriate action.
- You're all set! Go have a cup of coffee, you deserve it.
