Apple has plans to increase App Store retail prices for several countries over the next 24 hours, citing changes in foreign exchange rates. Prices will go up for the Australian Dollar, Indian Rupee, Indonesian Rupiah, Turkish Lira and South African Rand.

Retail prices for Israeli New Shekels and some pricing tiers for the New Zealand Dollar will be decreased, however.

According to an email sent out to developers, the new pricing will go into effect within 24 hours. Apple has done price adjustments on App Store and iTunes rates several times in the past, in order to compensate for changes in foreign exchange rates.

(Thanks, Patrick!)

Even when the Aussie dollar was above parity with the US dollar the Aussie prices on the App Store were 20-30% higher than the US

As a New Zealander, I like this.

Although it's currently April 1 here, so I'm just waiting till tomorrow... :)

I wouldnt be too smug about it, the South Pacific Peso (NZD) will be back on its way down soon enough :p

I support this move.

Thats because you have a history of supporting everything and anything Apple do.

The Canadian dollar has fallen just as much as the Australian dollar....why arent they getting a price adjustment?

While price rises are never welcome, these will only be modest increases and it's reasonable for Apple to pass these onto consumers in these markets with weak currencies. I support this move.
