Apple added 13 new countries to its App Store for iPhone and iPod touch apps on Thursday. The addition of the extra countries means third party developers have more regions where they can sell their apps.
In a posting on Apple's iPhone Developer Program news Web page, the company said "You can now distribute your apps to more customers with the addition of App Store support in Armenia, Botswana, Bulgaria, Jordan, Kenya, Macedonia, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritius, Niger, Senegal, Tunisia, and Uganda. Log in to iTunes Connect to view and update the countries where your applications are available."
Unless an app has been set to auto-add to new countries, developers will need to update their iTunes Connect preferences before their products will be available in the freshly added countries. Developers can make those changes at the iTunes Connect Web site.
