Apple increase iPhone and iPad game prices in Europe

The UK is one of the first countries to see the price increase.

Apple's iPhone and iPad games have seen their minimum price increased in the UK to 79p. This increase is part of baseline price changes the company are implementing across Europe and Canada.

Development partners of Apple have been informed the new starting prices for applications in many European countries, and Canada, must be increased by a small percentage.

One of the first countries to implement the pricing changes is the UK with their price change from 69p to 79p - an increase of about 14 percent.

Since the app store launched in 2008, this is the second time the minimum price has been increased. The change is said to be because of a new Europe-wide tax increase on digital goods. The reason for the increase in Canada is not clear.
