Apple announced that App Store users in Canada, Singapore, Russia, South Africa, New Zealand, Israel, and Mexico will be affected by theĀ price increase.

Prices of both apps and in-app purchases will be affected, which will kick in within 72 hours.

South African users with subscriptions will have to re-subscribe at the new price to continue their subscription-based services.
