How to Renew your Apple Developer Account

Your Apple Developer Account expires annually, 1 year from the date that you first purchased or last renewed it. The cost is $99/year. Apple sends reminder notifications as does Smarter Agent, but if the account expires before you renew it your iPhone & iPad apps will be removed from the stores until you renew the account.

Here’s how to renew your account, regardless of if the account has expired yet or not.

  1. Go to and Click “Account” to log in. If you are unsure of your UN and PW, contact your account manager.
  2. Click "RenewMembership" next to the iOS Developer Program Membership alert at the top.
  3. Click “Continue.”
  4. On the “Review your purchase details” page, click “Continue.”
  5. Check the “Automatic Renewal” checkbox.
  6. Click “Buy Now.”
  7. Log in again.
  8. You’ll then be promoted to fill in your credit card information to pay for an additional year of service with Apple.

Apple provides further assistance via their FAQ here:

If your apps did get removed from the store, once you renew the account they should be available again for download within a few hours.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
