Apple to raise app store prices in several countries

Apple says that App Store prices will rise in Brazil, Colombia, India, Indonesia, Russia, and South Africa. The tech giant says the increases also reflect the following tax changes:

  • India: New equalization levy of 2% (in addition to the existing goods and services tax of 18%)

  • Indonesia: New value-added tax of 10% for developers based outside of Indonesia

Prices of apps and in-app purchases (excluding auto-renewable subscriptions) will also be adjusted in Iceland and Albania to align with pricing used in other markets selling in U.S. dollars with value-added tax.
