And how much of that goes to the developers?

Of course this is Apple.. that operates in several tax havens, including Ireland.I bet they don't pay their Irish staff 25% more to account for the currently weaker GBP do they?

Yep. The Devs should also get a higher cut if the price increases as well. But being Apple.. i'm sure it's just more money for them.

I'm now doubly happy that my contract runs out this summer. Genuinely wish I'd never opted for an iPhone.
