Reminder for Winter Delivery Deadlines

November 17, 2016

We would like to remind you about adjusted deadlines for music deliveries for the winter season. If you plan on releasing music on Apple Music and the iTunes Store in December 2016, and January 2017, check the following delivery deadlines:

Release Dates Music Delivery Deadline
December 9, 2016 Friday, December 2, 2016
December 16, 2016 Friday, December 9, 2016
December 23, 2016 Friday, December 9, 2016
December 30, 2016 Friday, December 16, 2016
January 6, 2017 Friday, December 16, 2016

Note that music delivered after these deadlines may not be available on the desired release date.

We do not recommend making a large amount of deliveries or updates, such as pricing or clearance changes between December 22, 2016 and December 29, 2016.
