App Store prices are set to increase in the United Kingdom and several other countries beginning February 13, Apple declared today. The variations are being enforced due to changes in taxes and foreign exchange rates.
Price Changes in Colombia, Egypt, Hungary, Nigeria, Norway, South Africa, and the United Kingdom
App and in-app purchase costs in Colombia, Egypt, Hungary, Nigeria, Norway, South Africa, and the United Kingdom will rise, and prices in Uzbekistan will go down due to a three percent reduction in the value-added tax (VAT) rate. Modified prices are listed on Apple's App Store price chart.
Proceeds in Ireland, Luxembourg, Singapore, and Zimbabwe will not be affected, but costs will be adjusted slightly because of VAT alterations.

By the end of January, Apple revealed that proceeds are expected to increase for local developers selling in Cambodia, Kyrgyzstan, Indonesia, Singapore, South Korea, Tajikistan, Thailand, and Uzbekistan.
Additional Price Points in Spring 2023
In December, Apple announced plans to give developers with an extra 700 price points for App Store apps, allowing for more variation in App Store pricing. Apps will be able to be priced as low as 29 cents or as high as $10,000, and these changes are planned to be implemented for all apps in spring 2023.
