Apple's App Store Is About To Get More Expensive

If you were thinking of splashing out on a pro-app for your iPhone or iPad then now might be the time to do it as over the next 36 hours Apple will be upping the prices of all the apps on the App Store.

The price hike is to re-address changing VAT rates and also account for foreign exchange rates. For Europe that means prices will go up, in Iceland prices will go down and in Russia prices will 'change'.

According to Apple Insider the changes were announced to developers via an email announcing changes being made to both the App Store and Apple's Mac App Store.

It's not clear how drastic the hike will be but it be better to stay on the safe side and download it now, especially if it's a high-value app.
