Apple raises prices of all apps in App Store in the Netherlands and Belgium




Apple increases Thursday the price of all apps in the App Store for iOS and Mac. The cheapest apps, which now costs 89 cents, 99 cents will probably cost even more. The main reason seems to be the exchange rate.

Apple wanted anyway adjust prices due to an EU rule requiring that companies must apply the VAT of the country where the transaction occurs. Consequently Dutch users must pay for example the Dutch VAT.

The American company, however, also reports that prices higher because of the changed exchange rate. US users pay for the cheapest paid apps 99 cents. There is no VAT on.

It is therefore obvious that the cheapest apps go to 99 cents, while more expensive apps probably also go up by about 10 percent. What the new prices will be, will appear later in the day Thursday as Apple publishes the new prices in the App Store. The increase applies to the App Stores of both iOS and OS X. Earlier increased the prices of its all Apple Developer Program.
