Apple is increasing the price of iOS apps in the Apple App Store across five countries. Apple e-mailed developers explaining the details. The changes are being made due to exchange rate changes.

 

Starting today, customers that use the App Store with the Australian Dollar, Indian Rupee, Indonesian Rupiah, Turkish Lira or South African Rand will see prices increase. 

Some prices have decreased for other countries. “Retail prices for Israeli New Shekels and some price tiers for the New Zealand Dollar will be decreased,” added Apple.

Here is the e-mail that Apple sent out:

Dear customer,

Within the next 24 hours, the following changes will be made to pricing on the App Store.

To account for changes in foreign exchange rates, App Store retail prices will be increased for the following currencies:

Australian Dollar

Indian Rupee

Indonesian Rupiah

Turkish Lira

South African Rand

Additionally, retail prices for Israeli New Shekels and some price tiers for the New Zealand Dollar will be decreased.

Price adjustments on the App Store are made periodically due to changes in foreign exchange rates. Within 24 hours, you will see the new Pricing Matrix in the Rights and Pricing section of Manage Your Apps on iTunes Connect.

Updates to iOS Paid Applications and Mac OS X Paid Applications contracts will be available on the iTunes Connect website. To view all current and outstanding contracts, see Contracts, Tax, and Banking on iTunes Connect.
