Apple recently announced to its software developers via email that the cost of apps in certain currencies will be increased to account for foreign exchange rates.
Currencies that will be affected by the price increase include the Australian Dollar, Indian Rupee, Indonesian Rupiah, Turkish Lira and South African Rand. According to the updated pricing tables obtained by the Sydney Morning Herald, apps that previously cost 99 cents on the Australian iTunes App Store will now cost $1.29. The change also applies to other pricing tiers, with $1.99 apps now costing $2.49.
Currencies that will receive a price decrease because of the exchange rate are the Israeli New Shekels and the New Zealand Dollar.
