“In a note sent out to iTunes Connect members on Wednesday, Apple announced an imminent prices increase for Canada, Norway and all countries in the European Union, as well as an undisclosed change in app cost for Russian customers,” Mikey Campbell reports for AppleInsider.
“According to the notification sent out by Apple’s App Store team,” Campbell reports, “prices on the company’s digital storefront will be increased in the EU, Canada, and Norway, while customers in Iceland are set to see a decrease.”
“Russia will also receive price changes, though Apple failed to provide detail on the matter,” Campbell reports. “Modifications will take effect within 36 hours, the note said.”
MacDailyNews Note: Apple’s message, verbatim:
Within the next 36 hours, prices on the App Store will increase for all territories in the European Union as well as in Canada and Norway, decrease in Iceland, and change in Russia. These changes are being made to account for adjustments in value-added tax (VAT) rates and foreign exchange rates.
We will simultaneously update the Pricing Matrix in Rights and Pricing in My Apps on iTunes Connect.
We will also update the iOS Paid Applications and Mac OS X Paid Applications agreements, which will be available in Agreements, Tax, and Banking.
