If you haven’t notice, Apple App Store Malaysia is now using Ringgit Malaysia as the standard transaction currency instead of previous US dollar. This applies to all the available services on macOS and iOS App Store, iTunes and Apple Music.

With the implementation of local currency, the pricing of the apps, music and movies are now much more transparent compared to last time. Furthermore, the prices are rather reasonable if you were to compare the original USD conversion to current local pricing, for example:

Current

Apple Music Subscription

US$ 3.99 approx RM17.65

RM14.90

Final Cut Pro X

US$ 299.99 approx RM1326.99

(9 Dec 2016 rate)

RM1299.90

At least right now you know how much you’re paying instead of waiting for the credit card statement.
