Apple changes app prices for several countries
Apple has apparently taken an interest in the global monetary unit shifts, and as such has adjusted the prices of the apps and games found on the App Store accordingly.
As such, UK residents woke up yesterday finding completely new prices for the apps they wanted to purchase. Now you may think that perhaps a change from 59p to 69p isn’t a big deal, and you’d be absolutely right. However, the price changes were not uniform across the board, and as such you will find cases of increases of £1.5 even. Our colleagues at PocketGamer have compiled a list of the UK price increases.
Mexico and Norway have also experienced price increases, and we’re wondering if more such changes are to come.
Meanwhile, residents of the land down under (yes, Australia) have found that their App Store prices have dropped, as have residents of Japan and Switzerland. MacRumors have compiled a list of some of these changes:
“UK: £0.59 -> £0.69
Australia: AU$1.19 -> AU$0.99
Japan: 115 -> 85 Yen
Mexico: $10 -> $12
Switzerland: 1.10Fr -> 1.00Fr
Norway: 6.00Kr -> 7.00Kr”
If you’re from a country that has experienced changes in their app prices, please leave a comment with your thoughts on this move by Apple.
