So once we completed step 1, which was registering at http://developer.apple.com/programs/start/standard/create.php and once we completed step 2, which was (for us) indicating that we were a company interested in becoming a developer, we waited…. Apple needed more information to complete their review of our application.
7 days later… (yes, days), we received this from Apple:
“We are currently in the process of reviewing your iOS Developer Program enrollment information. Please fax one of the following forms of identity for your business. To assist with this process, please ensure your business documents match your enrollment information. Fax your submission to <their fax number>. Please include your Enrollment ID <our enrollment ID> that was provided to you upon submission.
Please include your main company corporate telephone number with your faxed documents.
Articles of incorporation
Certificate of Formation
Reseller or vendor license
Apple Developer Support”
We submitted our Articles of Incorporation. That was exactly 1 week ago. We’re still waiting…. I’ll keep you posted, and then we can continue with the next steps of the application process which includes, among other things, paying Apple (of course).
