Apple is bringing the App Store to 20 more countries later this year

Apple announced today that it is making the App Store available to 20 more countries this year. The tech giant says the goal of the new expansion is to help developers grow their business in new markets, noting that the online marketplace has helped them generate more than $155 billion in earnings.

The additional countries where the App Store will expand include (via 9to5Mac):

  • Afghanistan
  • Gabon
  • Cote d’Ivoire
  • Georgia
  • Maldives
  • Serbia
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • Cameroon
  • Iraq
  • Kosovo
  • Libya
  • Montenegro
  • Morocco
  • Mozambique
  • Myanmar
  • Nauru
  • Rwanda
  • Tonga
  • Zambia
  • Vanuatu

Apple also advises developers to sign in to their accounts on its developer website and accept the updated program license agreements in order to make their apps available in those countries when the expansion rolls out. Then developers must check the “New Countries or Regions” box in the Pricing and Availability section of the app information page. The same must be done in the App Store Connect as well, and these steps need to be completed by April 10 to make sure apps are ready to be published in the new locations.

The Cupertino-based tech giant notes that the App Store is already accessible across 155 countries or regions, with more than half a billion visitors every week.
