Apple notifies developers of incoming VAT-influenced pricing changes to South African App Store

This weekend, Apple has notified App Store developers that the South African App Store will see app price changes due to the country’s new 14% Value Added Tax rate.

A new pricing matrix can be accessed by developers in iTunes Connect.
