Apple has bumped up the prices of apps in its iTunes and Mac app stores by as much as 25 percent in some cases.

The changes, which according to Apple reflect the fluctuations in exchange rates against the dollar, has seen the cheapest apps, which were originally priced at 59p, now costing 69p. The most expensive rises see iOS apps priced at £3.99 and £7.99 rising to £4.99 and £9.99 respectively.

Meanwhile, Final Cut Pro X has gone up a whopping £20 from £179.99 to £199.99.

The price of apps are not set by developers. Instead, they select a pricing tier, which Apple then has the right to adjust as and when it sees fit.

Apple has yet to comment on the issue.
