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