A redesigned iTunes Connect portal will be made available to developers and content holders later in 2014, Apple revealed yesterday during its Platforms State of the Union presentation, which is now available in video format via the WWDC website
and app. Visually the new interface takes after iCloud.com
. Feature-wise however it's receiving several important upgrades, including more data for app developers, and an analytics component that will let people track figures like whether people are remaining active users of software. Apple notes that people won't have to download anything to get the iTunes Connect update.
During the same presentation, the company observed that its TestFlight beta-testing service will support up to 1,000 users -- not devices -- and use Apple IDs. It also remarked that it will start aggregating crash reports for app developers, but only sometime in 2015.
