RE-TUNED: The price of apps on Apple's App Store is set to increase worldwide, but drop in New Zealand.

Kiwis will soon be paying less for some applications in Apple's iTunes store.

Apple yesterday announced pricing changes for several countries, and while most have increases, select price tiers in New Zealand are dropping.

The prices changes apply to Mac, iPad, iPhone and iPod touch apps.

The price reductions have been made after changes in foreign exchange rates.

Since last September, the kiwi has strengthened against the United States dollar, with the current exchange rate sitting at 87 cents, up from 77c six months ago.

Australia, South Africa and several other countries face price rises.

The prices changes will be made within the next 24 hours, but the amount of the adjustment was not yet known.

Apple said price adjustments on the App Store were made periodically because of changes in foreign exchange rates.
