Apple has informed developers that it is planning to change App Store pricing in a number of countries, including Singapore, within the next 72 hours.
The price change for apps and in-app purchases is due to the fluctuations in exchange rates, the US tech giant said in a posting on The Next Web, a tech news site.
"For users in New Zealand, Israel, Russia, Singapore, South Africa and Mexico, the app pricing tiers will change by a small margin, which will include in-app purchases,'' it said.
According to the App Store Team, paid apps will cost at least S$1.48. This is S$0.20 more than the current S$1.28 for the cheapest app in its online store.
It said subscriptions would not be interrupted in Canada, New Zealand, Mexico and Singapore.
"Shortly before their exisitng subcription renews, subscribers in these territories will receive an email from us to let them know about the price increase with the ption to turn off their subscription,'' according to the App Store Team.
