How to Change Your App Store Account Location

The App Store, available on all iOS devices such as the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, allows you to download various applications to your device. If you are travelling, or moving to a new location, it is important to change the country or region on your device to reflect your current location. You can change the location of your App Store account from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch's main menu.
