• Apple’s Planning to Increase App Price in Selected Markets

    Posted on January 17th, 2017 Henry | 710 comments

    According to BBC this week, Apple is planning to increase the prices of apps and in-app purchases in specific markets, including India, the UK and Turkey.

    “Price tiers on the App Store are set internationally on the basis of several factors, including currency eschange rates, business practices, taxes, and the cost of doing business,” Apple explained. “These factors vary from region to region and over time.”

    The raise of price was the response to a weakening pound sterling against the US dollar following Brexit. In response to that move, some tech companies had chosen to raise the price of their products. One Plus 3, for instance, had its price increased shortly after launch.

    Similar pricing policy with U.S.

    Assume that users are paying $0.99 for an app in the U.S., usually they would be paying $ 79p in the UK, but now with the new pricing method, they would probably be paying 99p. BBC also said that Apple has allowed publishers to adjust the pricing to a lower level to help compensate the changes.

    Developers who spoke to the BBC suggested that they are probably not going to change the pricing of apps as it would mean more money out of their pocket. This is just a balancing of the system.

The fresh version iOS4.2 was overwhelmed with Individual statements and public media coverage in an instantly. What is sure is that forums concern about iOS4.2 upgrade and iPhone jailbreak frantically flood over the Internet.

    Have you ever heard of jailbreak of iPhone? So much has been said about iPhone jailbreak since the debut of iOS4.2 when I search on the Internet. The hottest topic can be briefly described in this way: How can I realize perfect jailbreak for my iPhone? Generally speaking, the professional answer to this question will be a long text with lots of technical words which confused you absolutely. In considering the reality that you may have difficulty in comprehending the long text when seeking the iPhone jailbreak solution, I carefully select some technical words you will encounter in jailbreak. The substantival explanations below will be of some help and assist you to achieve iPhone jailbreak with no technical worries.

    Locked VS Unlocked Take iPhone 3g or iPhone 4g for example, the difference between the locked and the unlocked lies in this way: the network lock is added to the locked version, to put it in another way, it is bundled by the operators, such as the American AT&T and the Britain O2. Instead, the unlocked version can be called the official unlocked edition.

    iPhone JailbreakJailbreak can be applied to both the locked and the unlocked version. As the name suggests, what jailbreak can do is to strengthen the functions of iPhone by changing some programs. Whether your iPhone belongs to the locked or the unlocked one, you do not have to resort to jailbreak if you just want to use the legitimate software in App Store. On the contrary, it you hope to equip your iPhone with software that it of fun and not sold in App Store which is what we often call “pirated software”, you need to employ jailbreak.

    iPhone UnlockUnlock is limited to the locked version only. There are two ways of unlocking: hard solution & soft solution. Before the release of soft solution, hard solution dominates the field of iPhone unlocking and card is the most common one. The “cracking” or “decryption” people generally refer to collectively known as “Unlock + Jailbreak”. As a result, many cracking methods are actually the combination of unlocking ways and jailbreak means.

    iPhone Firmware & Firmware UpgradeFirmware is probably equivalent to computer operating system or BIOS with advanced functions. Therefore the firmware upgrade is similar to the computer operating system update such as bug-fixings or version update. Whether jailbreak or not is not conflict with firmware upgrade.

    Do you have any ideas about iPhone jailbreak now? If you want to know more about iPhone jailbreak, iPhone apps or the other multimedia software focus on iPhone, then keep your eyes on the updated blog.
