I have spent the last few days trying to figure out exatly what the impact is with changing country and card details on my Apple ID to a new location.
I changed from Ireland to the UK, and then I realised all my purchases were no longer in the 'apps in the cloud' section meaning I couldn't redownload easily!
I subsequently talked to senior advisors in Apple and they informed me it was not a big deal and I could download the apps i've paid for already in the Irish store for free. (including both the Mac App store and iTunes store/iOS store)
So all though not great I was happy enough with this solution, while I live in the UK I can redownload what I need for free on demand and when I move back to Ireland I can change it back and all my purchases will be there again, they also confirmed it doesn't affect other Apple ID services like iCloud.
Updates are still confsuing me though, I was told that iOS devices would recognise updates and show new updates in the store (which they do!) I was also told that iTunes would not allow updates of apps purchased in the old store but I could sync back updates done on my iOS devices... This was the case until I installed iTunes 11.0.4 tonight when for some reason it let me update all my apps in iTunes with no problem?!
So my question, did something change in 11.0.4 and now I can get updates for alll apps (old store and new in iTunes)?
and what about Mac App store - will I get updates for my apps from the old store in that?
