Apple: Price Increases Coming To Australian App Stores

I just got the following email from Apple:

Dear James,

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.

Regards,

The App Store team

We don’t know for sure yet how much they’re going up, but if I had to guess? They’re probably going back to the pre-adjustment prices we had back in 2011. This change applies to both iOS and Mac App Stores.
