If you wish to access other content or services that are not offered where you are right now, changing your nation or region in the App Store may be helpful. You should be conscious of any potential disadvantages and restrictions, though.

You should always cancel any subscriptions or pre-orders that are only available in your current location and use a payment method and billing address that are valid for the nation or region you are relocating to.
