Apple changes Developer Program

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 11.18.20With the introduction of watchOS yesterday at WWDC2015, Apple have made some changes to their developer programme: it is no longer required to enrol for membership in the iOS and Mac developer programmes for $99 each. Now there’s only one membership, called Apple Developer for $99 per year. How exciting!

Apple were nice enough to add up the remaining days in all your enrolments and extend your membership until such time. From then on, only $99 per year are applicable, and not 2x $99 as previously.

The new Apple Developer membership also includes the previously free Safari Extension programme, as well as new resources for Swift 2 and watchOS. If you need support with an Apple / iOS device then you can get support by visiting this website.

All that’s required to go ahead is to sign a new agreement and save some cash. In my opinion, this is seriously good news. I was contemplating of letting my Mac Dev Membership lapse – now I don’t have to worry about that anymore 🙂
