As the finer details of Brexit are being worked out by the political powers, Apple has determined how it will deal with it in the immediate future; and it's not good news for UK based iPhone owners. 

The firm has announced impending changes to to its App Store, which will see the price of apps and in-app purchases increase by 25% in the UK. This is following the recent drop of the pound. 

An app that costs $0.99 in the US will cost £0.99 going forward, as opposed to £0.79. It's thought that more expensive apps and software will increase at a similar rate. MacRumours suggests that these sorts of price hikes may also impact the cost of iTunes and Apple Music before long too. 

Apple unveiled their iPhone 7 late last year, their first product announced post-Brexit and consumers in the UK were forced to pay up to £100 more for the device due to the weak pound.
