Recently, there were reports that Apple’s App Store was experiencing issues with corrupted binaries affecting dozens of newly-updated apps over the past few days. Cheers! The problem has been fixed now.

Within hours of the updates release, Apple acknowledged the issue in its developer forums and started working on a broader fix.

According to our developer sources, Apple has now responded to numerous complaints in its Developer Forums with a brief statement posted by username “iTunesConnect.”

The statement reads: “We are aware of the issue related to apps crashing after update. We are currently working on resolving the issue. Stay tuned for updates.”

Apple was also emailing developers regarding the issue and including contact information for support issues. One developer who was able to speak to a support representative was told that Apple had a dedicated team working on the issue.

Late on last Thursday, after Apple finished investigating the problem, Apple issued an official statement to AllThingsD:

“We had a temporary issue that began yesterday with a server that generated DRM code for some apps being downloaded,” Apple said in a statement to AllThingsD. Apple said it affected only a small number of users.

“The issue has been rectified and we don’t expect it to occur again,” Apple said. Those who have an affected app can re-download it from the App Store.

Apple removed all one-star reviews stemming from the corrupted versions of the apps.
