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 and Smarter Agent will send you reminder notifications to ensure your app is not removed from the App Store. If the account expires before you renew it your iPhone & iPad apps will be removed from Apple's App Store until you renew the account.
Here’s how to renew your account, regardless of if the account has expired yet or not.
- Go to https://developer.apple.com/programs/ and click “Account” to log in. If you are unsure of your username and password, contact your account manager.
- Click "Renew Membership" next to the iOS Developer Program Membership alert at the top.
- Click “Continue.”
- You will 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: https://developer.apple.com/support/ios/program-renewals.php. 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.
