Apple will soon hike the prices in its App Store for Canadian customers, according to an email sent to software developers.

The email, sent out on Wednesday, said the unspecified price increase in Canada, Norway and European Union countries would take effect within 36 hours.

Apple said foreign exchange rates were triggering the increase in Canada.

A spokeswoman for Apple would not comment further on the imminent price changes.

It's unknown how much prices will increase and if all products in the App Store are affected.
