Posted by · 18610 views · Translate

Apple significantly raised its prices in many countries today including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Portugal, and others. The price increase is to adjust for the stronger U.S. dollar.

Taking Canada as an example, Apple has increased the price of the iPhone 6 from $749-$969 to $839-$1099. That's an increase of 12%-13.4%. Currently, 1 USD = 1.26 CAD. Comparing the starting price of the iPhone 6 in the U.S. ($649) to the new price in Canada ($839), the difference is 29.3%.

Apple also increased prices of its other devices including the Thunderbolt Display ($999 to $1199 CAD) and 15-inch Retina MacBook ($2099-$2699 to $2449-$3049 CAD).

If you're planning to purchase an Apple device, take a look at your online Apple Store to see if its price has changed.

nothing to worry, Cupertino increased also salaries in those countries so all these products are as affordable as before.
