If you are using an iPhone or iPad, you may face difficulty while changing the country or travel from one country to another. This is because the App store is personalized based on the location. To update your country, you have to cancel previous subscriptions and add new payment details. The following are some of the instructions you have to follow while changing the country.
- Finish using the credits and Gift Card balances before switching the country.
- Cancel Subscriptions because the app might not be available in the new country.
- If you have any refund in progress, wait until the refund gets completed. If you switch the country with a new payment, you may not get a refund.
- You must add Payment details of the new country while switching the country. You can’t use the same payment details in two countries.
