Vietnamese users will see App Store prices increase from October 5

Explaining the reason for the increase in App Store prices in Vietnam, Apple said that this move reflects new regulations related to tax collection. Meanwhile, the company did not explain why it raised prices in other regions.


The strong dollar could be the main driver of this rally. In Japan, prices are up about 30%, a significant increase since the yen’s sharp weakness this year. Earlier this summer, Apple raised prices on its Macs, iPhones, and iPads to account for the currency disparity. The euro suffered a similar fate, currently trading at near par with the US dollar and showing signs of further weakness in the near future.
