Apple transitioning app store prices into local currencies in nine countries

Apple is transitioning the pricing at its app stores from the U.S. dollar and euro to the local currencies of nine countries, “a change that in some locales equates to a small savings thanks to favorable exchange rates,” reports AppleInsider.

In Poland, the zloty replaces the euro on Apple’s digital storefronts, including the iOS and Mac App Stores, iTunes, and iBooks Store. Local currency is also applied to services and subscriptions like iCloud and Apple Music. Along with Poland, Apple is switching store currency in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania over from euro pricing. 

At the same time, Chile, Colombia, Croatia and Peru are swapping to their local currency from the U.S. dollar. This comes almost six months after Apple transitioned Egypt, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, Qatar, Tanzania and Vietnam to local currency pricing last year.
