Warning to MILLIONS of iPhone owners – Apple is raising prices in the App Store

IPHONE fans have been warned that iOS apps will cost you more.

Apple is changing pricing structures in several countries over the next month, with much of Europe badly affected.

App prices will not increase in the UK and US

Countries using the euro now see the lowest possible price, rising from €0.99 to €1.19.

An app that currently costs 9.99 euros has shot up to 11.99 euros.

The increase also affects paid apps in the App Store and in-app purchases.

Apple sets the rules for how much developers can charge for their apps, and breaks them down into different tiers.

Chile, Egypt, Japan, Malaysia, Pakistan, Poland, South Korea, Sweden and Vietnam are among the places where prices will also increase.

Thankfully, the UK and US have been spared this time, but experts aren’t sure for how much longer.

“Unclear if and when price hikes will come to the UK,” Paolo Pescatore, an analyst at PP Foresight, told The Sun.

“Prices are all moving in the wrong direction; no one is immune as consumers are all feeling the crisis and tightening their belts.

“People will be forced to make some decisions about their devices, services and subscriptions in the coming months.

“Some will be downgraded, others cancel altogether.”

Apple – the world’s most valuable company – plans to roll out the new pricing starting October 5.

Apps with subscriptions can keep their prices the same for existing customers.

And all auto-renewing subscriptions are also exempt.
