Noting changes in currency exchange rates, Apple on Monday disclosed App Store prices in Australia and four other countries stand to rise.
The email, first published by Apple news Web site MacRumors, also said apps sold in the meantime in Israel as well as some price tiers for apps in New Zealand will decrease.
ITWire predicts the price increase will make a huge difference.
"If you were holding out to buy 'VIP Black,' available for just $1049 ... now might be the best time to do it," the portal said.
It was in 2011 when prices of Apple apps last increased in Australia since 2011 when prices fell due to the strong Australian dollar.
On 11.38 am ,Tuesday, the Australian dollar fetched $US0.93.
