Requesting Technical Support
A Technical Support Incident (TSI) is a request for code-level support for Apple frameworks, APIs, and tools, and is available to members of the Apple Developer Program, Apple Developer Enterprise Program, and MFi Program. Submit a TSI if you cannot fix a bug, have trouble implementing a specific technology, or have other questions about your code. Your incident will be assigned to a Developer Technical Support engineer who can help troubleshoot your code or provide workarounds to fast-track your development. Responses are delivered via email in English, typically within three business days.

Your TSIs are grouped by expiration date, and the ones that expire soonest will be used first. Please note that TSI management in your account is not available for MFi Program members.
