Apple's App Store prices are about to go up due to the effect of Brexit which has negatively affected exchange rates.
As reported at 9to5Mac, apps that now cost 79p will be increasing to 99p, while a Tier 2 priced app will now cost £1.99 in the UK up from £1.49. An in-app purchase that previously cost £7.99, such as the 'All Worlds' upgrade in Super Mario Run, will soon be priced at £9.99.
Broadly this represents a 25 per cent increases, and Apple is notifying developers of the changes this week, confirming that it will affect apps in both the iOS and Mac App Stores. As 9to5Mac notes, the same increases also likely will hit the iTunes Store for TV shows, movies and books.
Apple says that the new higher prices will roll out to the App Store over the next seven days.
This isn't the first time that Apple has blamed Brexit for price increases. As well as hiking iPhone prices in September, the following month the firm quietly upped the price of some older products, including the iMac 4K and Mac Pro.
Meanwhile the Mac Mini is now priced at £479 (compared to £399 previously), the iMac 4K now costs £1,449 (up from £1,199), and the iMac 5K now starts at £1,749 (up from £1,449). Even Apple's bin-like Mac Pro, which hasn't been upgraded since 2013, saw its price increased from £2,499 to an eye-watering £2,999.
