Re: How to Delete AppID from Apple Developer Account

Peter Teeson

are you perhaps logged in to the App store with this ID? 
If so would signing out and then trying to delete work?

OMG! You’re not serious! You can’t delete it? Could someone please confirm or deny this?

If you can’t then I’m speechless! In fact I’m laughing my head off, have Apple really gotten so bad that they can’t be bothered to provide a delete button?

Over time, I had built up a lot of unneeded AppIds. They started to cause me problems, especially as my sight has deteriorated. I contacted the AppConnect team  and asked them to help. They made a one-time exception for me. I cant say that they would do that for others, but until this process is improved — where we can delete AppIds, Certs etc, it’s worth asking...

I have an AppID that I want to delete from my Apple Developer account. I select it and Click Edit, Scroll down to the bottom and Click Delete, I then get this message:

The App ID ‘' appears to be in use by the App Store, so it can not be removed at this time.

I don’t have this App on the App Store, so not sure what to do now, I just want rid of it! How can I delete the App.

I also have the same problem with the App inside TestFlight, but I’m hoping that it will be removed automatically if I can just delete the App ID!

Any help greatly appreciated
