app-store-logo.jpgOne of Apple’s App Store’s main draws is its affordability – a tenner can kit you out with all manner of games, productivity software, books and entertainment apps.Things are about to get a little bit more expensive though, as App Store prices just got a bit more expensive, right across the board.

The cheapest apps will now start at 69p rather than 59p, marking a price jump of almost 17%. Apart from £2.99 apps (which retain their pricing) all other app price brackets also make a considerable jump.

The full list of changes is as follows:

59p now 69p
£1.19 now £1.49
£1.79 now £1.99
£2.39 now £2.49
£2.99 still £2.99
£3.49 now £3.99
£3.99 now £4.99
£4.99 now £5.49
£5.49 now £5.99
£5.99 now £6.99
£6.99 now £7.99
£7.49 now £8.99
£8.99 now £10.49
£9.49 now £10.99

Though prices still remain in the “pocket money” category for the most part, drag that out other say a yars worth of app buying and that a significant amount of extra cash lost.
