App Store prices see international increase thanks to exchange rates

Apple is changing App Store prices in several countries, making alterations based on fluctuating values in foreign currencies. Prices based on the Australian Dollar, Indian Rupee, Indonesian Rupiah, Turkish Lira, and South African Rand will all be increased, while prices based on Israel's New Shekel as well as some based on the New Zealand Dollar will decrease.

These sorts of adjustments are made from time to time because of changes in currency exchange rates. The changes are expected to take place within the next 24 hours.
