If you have a Paid Applications Agreement, the Account Holder will also need to accept this updated agreement in App Store Connect. You can then select the “New Countries or Regions” checkbox in the Pricing and Availability section of your app information page to automatically make your app available in all-new countries” company added further.
For now, the Cupertino-based tech giant Apple is advising the developers to understand the news norms of the company so that at the time of expansion their apps will be available. To understand the complete scenario developers need to check the complete list of the “New Countries or Regions” and the pricing criteria in the information page. The complete process must be completed by April 10 to make certain apps are ready to be published in the fresh locations.
