Apple App Store to Amp Up Prices in Russia

Apple will soon raise prices in the App Store in six countries, including Russia, due to currency appreciation and higher taxes, according to the company’s website, TASS reported.

The changes will affect 6 countries: Russia, Brazil, Colombia, India, Indonesia, and South Africa, and will affect both the price of applications themselves and purchases within them. The price for auto-renewing subscriptions will remain the same.

The company did not specify when exactly the changes will take place.
