As you may have seen in the news recently, due to currency fluctuations Apple have raise the UK prices associated with each of their price tiers by around 20-25%. Up until Tier 20, the UK and US prices will match numerically for the first time (e.g. Tier 5 = $4.99 and £4.99, rather than $4.99 and £3.99). 


Importantly, due to changes Apple made last year, existing subscriptions in the App Store will NOT be cancelled; new subscriptions and renewals will continue at their existing prices in each currency. The pricing for auto-renewing subscriptions on all branded app platforms will be retained and renewals will be unaffected.

Two areas will be affected however:

  • As of the point Apple update their tiers ('in the next 7 days'): single issue prices on Apple will be increasing for UK customers. Anything that was £3.99 will be £4.99.
  • The price for new subscriptions and single issues on the Pocketmags Android app, Amazon app, Windows app and Pocketmags.com will be affected as the pricing is pegged to the Apple price tiers (though existing auto-renewals will not be affected).
