At Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this month, Tim Cook announced that the App Store would be launching in 32 additional countries this month, bringing the total number of countries with App Store access to 155. As documented in the country-selection page within the iTunes Store, those 32 new markets are now available, although Apple has yet to update its support page (http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3599) listing which iTunes Store content is available in which countries.

http://images.macrumors.com/article-new/2012/06/cook_app_store_155_countries.jpg


The vast majority of new countries are located in Apple's African and Asian markets, with the exception of Albania and Ukraine in Europe. The full list of new App Store countries includes: Albania, Benin, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cape Verde, Chad, Republic of the Congo, Fiji, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Liberia, Malawi, Mauritania, Federated States of Micronesia, Mongolia, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Palau, Papua New Guinea, São Tomé and Príncipe, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Swaziland, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Zimbabwe.

I hope they'll pay local taxes instead of just launching stores in native languages that sell in US dolar and in practice are american stores translated to other languages. It's like a brazilian person, living in Brazil, buying stuff from an Amazon site translated to portuguese. This is nothing different to contraband.

I was one of them, thanks for pointing it out.

However, am still not getting this!! I though App store was a masive international store that is within your iOS device wherever you go!! Does this mean that people on these new countries will be abble to open an accont for app store or what exactly is it?

It can't be that either; Republic of Congo is highlighted on the map, but it was supposedly just added, unless someone has confused Dem Rep. Congo with Rep. Congo.

Also since Tim Cook is in the photo, this image can't be directly related to the article. The original photo is probably showing "countries with carriers that provide iPhones" or something.

You can't use US iTunes cards sold for profit in foreign stores, because each country sells iTunes gift cards in its own currency. The iTunes/App/iBooks stores are different in every country.

Please, I live in Zambia where there isnt any apple store. There is a gigantic craze for blackberries here. Everyone does it. You know why, because RIM actually set it up. There is even a store I know that sells an iPhone 4 for nearly $2,500. Needless to say its collecting dust. If they sell an iPhone 4 for the price of a blackberry torch, it can be popular. If they do it throughout africa, it can gain a considerable amount of sales. I usually have to wait until I go out of the country before I buy an Apple product.

For any small developers out there, you need to login to iTunes connect and agree to two new contacts for your apps to be visible in these new Countries.

Just did mine...

I might get more than 10 sales a day... but then again probably not.

I would have thought before these Countries had there own stores that iphone users could have found a way to buy apps from the US store...

The lighter colored countries are countries where Apple does NOT have an App Store. Because there are so few countries where Apple doesn't have an App Store, no matter what the color (light or dark), the non-app store countries seem highlighted.

When something is "off", it's dark. When something is "on", it's light.

That's why so many people misinterpret the map. Apple has inverted the usual accepted convention when they made that map.

It's not like Apple don't know about this convention either. When you search something in System Preferences, the window gets darker with lighted circles around the icons where a match is found. A similar thing happens when you search something on a Web page with Safari.

1. Set your settings to "USA"
2. Get a prepaid U.S. Visa Card (available at all major U.S. grociers)
3. Only use iTunes cards from the U.S. to increase your balance.

I think that should work - not only for the free stuff but also for music and paid book content which are excluded from a lot of local AppStores. Alternatively, in Europe, you can get that from France, GB or Germany which also have a "full" store online for all content. Limitation might be that the content is limited language-wise. Now, in Europe, you learn at least one of the three languages in school, so, in case content is limited, you improve your language skills. :cool:

It's do annoying that apple should open an app store for Zimbabwe Namibia and DRC all of which are our neighbors in my country Zambia, a country with a really long history of independence and has a very good investor profile so the amount of tax wouldn't be that much. Samsung and Blackberry already have services available and it's no wonder they have done well in African markets. There has been an apple frenzy in my country but it's not as good as it would be if people could get applications for their apple devices. Wake up apple, it sucks to see my country surrounded from all sides like an island by countries with app store support while we remain in the dark.

Someone please give me Tim Cook's email so I can get a comment

I think apple needs to stop being a bully and should start listening to its consumers, I know profits look good now but there is only so much people will tolerate, at some point they will make loses if they don't start listening to want consumers want. There are a lot of company's that have learnt the hard way, apple you don't wanna be next

I came here to post that it's Zambia that's lit up on the map, not Zimbabwe. Then I went to the App Store to confirm and no, it's Zimbabwe, not Zambia. Someone just got the map wrong. I'm really surprised about this as Zambia has a more stable government and a much stronger economy. Strange decision.

I'm heading to Zambia next January. It sounds like I should bring some extra iPhones and iPads to fund my trip!

You do realize that the lit-up countries are the ones WITHOUT service, right? There is no service in North Korea, Afghanitan, Iran, Irak, Somalia, etc. Just saying... :)

I think everyone thought that the lit-up countries are the "new AppStores" and then I realized the countries like North Korea, etc, and I knew that can't be right. Wondering about Serbia though - they seem to be pretty stable compared to others.

Just historically, Africa is very important. 95% of the genetic variety of the human genome is found in Afrika (2.5% comes from the Neanderthaliens, the rest from the few females who left Africa and had surviving offspring). So, it's back to the roots :D - on that note: all humans are genetically closer related than any given primate's group found in the wild to each other.

There is no convention.

Look at the following maps and what is highlighted. The highlighted portion is DARKER than the non-highlighted portion (same common color).

http://1x57.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/namibia-map-africa-highlighted-location-contintent.png

The only issue is that if too many countries/provinces get highlighted then what actually is highlighted becomes confusing.

For example, in the following.... which are highlighted and which aren't? In this map, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi and Vermont are meant to be EXCLUDED (this company does not do work in those states), same as what Apple did.

Well, that this map is not one released by Apple, it is a screenshot from the WWDC keynote. In the keynote, you first see a map of countries where the App store is available now (it is obvious which colour are the existing ones because we all know which countries definitely have the App store and we know that the majority of all countries already have it), and then you see an animation of new countries flying onto the map, and finally the map will the new total coverage (which is the screenshot shown here).

Thus in the keynote it is blindingly obvious what is what, ie, there is nothing wrong in the way Apple created that map. It is just that when part of the presentation is quoted out of context that one might misinterpret things. But looking at the map itself it should become obvious within seconds that the brighter countries are the ones without an App store, who in his right mind would think that Cuba, Libya, Syria, Iran, Somalia, Afghanistan, or North Korea would have an App store? And that is without even reading the list of new countries.

How do I get a U.S. Visa Card from a major U.S. grocery store when living in Europe? Just take a quick flight over to the U.S. for it?

BTW, most international iTMS and App Stores are in English. When Apple first expanded beyond the U.S. (to the UK, Germany and France) they localised the language to French and German. On their next expansion all additional stores just were in English. They have since localised to several other languages (eg, Spanish because of the huge market) but the majority of non-US App stores is still in English-only.

Ok, guys, I understand why Apple don't want to open its shops in the Russia Federation...Because of bears on the streets...:) It's a joke. Seriously, there are a lot of people who like Apple products and pay much more than prices in official AppStore. For example, base model non-retina MBP costs 44% more than it costs in your USA retail store. Another problem is delivery. I can order MBP from USA but there is no guarantee that your parcel will be delivered in a right condition. Our post service is really bad and nobody covers possible damages. Also delivery companies such as USPS say that because your parcel has wireless module so we can't cover any accidents. It sounds strange but if you work with delivery companies that give you P.O. address in USA (shipito for example) you know what I am talking about. So I am planning to find a friend in USA who can help me deliver MBP to Russia or I can have an one-day trip to Finland to buy my dream.
