The Cupertino company has announced that it will raise the prices of the App Store, which includes both applications and integrated purchases, to from October 5, 2022. A change that will apply to all countries in the Euro zone and, therefore, also to Spain.
New prices due to euro-dollar changes
In addition, Apple will also raise prices in Chile, Egypt, Japan, Malaysia, Pakistan, Poland, South Korea, Sweden, and Vietnam. the rise is coming motivated by the euro-dollar parity in which the latter has gained strength over the former. A situation that has already resulted in price increases in other company products.
Once the uploads are effective, the developers will see how the different tiers of payment are updated. Thus, the lowest cost option, the one that until now was in 0.99 euros, will go to 1.19 euros. The 3.99 will go to 4.99, the 9.99 to 11.99 and the 19.99 to 24.99. The same will happen with the rest of the prices, up to 999 euros, which will increase to 1,199.
Although in Spain and in the Eurozone we have not seen increases in the prices of the Apple store for a long time, the company has to adjust these equivalencies regularly for many countries in the world. This ensures that a application obtain an equivalent value regardless of the market in which the sale takes place.
Lastly, comment that subscriptions that renew automatically will not be affected by this price increase. Also that some developers may decide to go to a lower price manually so as not to increase the price of their applications.
