Apple has announced that it will be increasing the prices of apps and in-app purchases in a number of countries namely, Canada, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, and South Africa, to take into account changes in currency rates.

Subscription services in these countries will also see their prices altered. In Russia and South Africa, users will need to resubscribe at the new prices, while in the rest of the countries subscribers will be notified in advance, before the current subscription expires with the option to cancel or renew at the increased prices.

Israel won’t be affected, as there are no subscription services there as of now.

The changes are nothing new to the platform, and we reported on such a move back in July, when Mexico and South Africa were on the list again. This latest wave will become effective within the next 72 hours, so go app-shopping now, if it hasn’t hit you yet.
