If you are living in the US, you’ll see the iTunes App Store list prices of apps and in-app purchases in USD. If you live in Australia, you’ll see it priced in AUD, and this is more or less the standard practice for apps for most parts of the world. However there are some countries in the which Apple has relied on USD.
However that has changed Because Apple has since updated the iTunes App Store to now display local currencies for 8 countries around the world. This includes Egypt (Egyptian Pound), Kazakhstan (Kazakhstani Tenge), Malaysia (Malaysian Ringgit), Nigeria (Nigerian Naira), Pakistan (Pakistani Rupee), Philippines (Philippine Peso), Qatar (Qatari Riyal), Tanzania (Tanzanian Shilling) and Vietnam (Vietnamese Dong).
This means that if you are from Reviews those countries, prices for paid apps will now be listed in your local currency. As for developers, they will Also get paid based on the local currency, Although given that the currency does fluctuate every so Often, it means that you MIGHT not always get the same rate as before.
We’re not sure if this Also means that some apps could end up being cheaper or more expensive, so users will have to check for Themselves. This should not really have too big of an impact, but if you live in a country where your local currency against the USD is not particularly strong, then this could be a welcome change.
