App Store Server API Update

Support users and resolve in-app purchase issues more quickly with new App Store Server API endpoints, now available in production.

  • Renewal Date Extension. Extend the renewal date of a user’s subscription by up to 90 days in cases of a service or content delivery issue — such as a server outage or cancellation of a live event.
  • Look up Order ID. Confirm a user’s in-app purchase when providing customer support using the Order ID on the purchase invoice sent by Apple. Customers can also view their order ID in their purchase history at https://apps.apple.com/account/purchases.
  • Refund Lookup. Identify whether a user received refunds for past in-app purchases.

App Store Server Notifications Version 2

You can now take advantage of new notification types that cover more user events, including subscription expirations, offer redemptions, refunds, and more. You can also provide a unique URL in App Store Connect for App Store sandbox transactions, separate from the URL that you use for production — or choose to use the same URL for both.

Sandbox Testing Update

The App Store sandbox environment lets you test in-app purchases on device and server-to-server using product information set up in App Store Connect, helping you deliver high-quality in-app purchase experiences. You can now:

  • Clear the purchase history for auto-renewable subscriptions and nonconsumables purchases made by a tester in the sandbox environment, so you can more easily test one-time purchase scenarios and continue using the same test account. In-app purchases made by customers on the App Store are not affected.
  • Change the App Store region for a Sandbox Apple ID, so you can test across regions with the same tester account.
  • Set the renewal rate for auto-renewable subscriptions in sandbox, so you can speed up or slow down how often subscriptions renew for a tester in the sandbox environment. Renewal rates are accelerated in the sandbox environment and subscriptions are automatically canceled after 12 renewals.

Use the beta version of TestFlight for Mac to test your Mac apps built with Xcode 13 beta 5 or later. You can invite registered Apple developers to download this beta version and use it to test your apps on macOS Monterey beta 5. We’d also appreciate your feedback on TestFlight for Mac, which you can provide through Feedback Assistant.

When using this version of TestFlight on macOS Monterey beta 5 or earlier, you’ll need to quit the beta version of your native Mac app before updating it, as the system will not prompt you to quit before updating.
