A few days ago, we announced thatApple changed the way he calculated taxes for developers, in accordance with a new European directive. The Cupertino company now attaches VAT to countries. In other words, each country has its own percentage, which can sometimes harm developers.
This is little positive news that is coming today to publishers. Indeed, Apple increased prices for its iOS and Mac developer accounts. To publish an application on theApp store, the creator will have to pay € 99, compared to € 79 previously. The same goes for the Mac App Store.
As a reminder, the developer accounts allow access to the Apple development kits, as well as to the different beta of iOS and OS X. For the moment, Apple has given no reason to justify this sudden increase in 25 %. We can assume, however, that it is still a matter of taxes.
