According to the study, most of the iPhone 6 will have to pay the residents of Brazil: local shops on average asking $931 for the “Apple” of the device of the sixth generation. Slightly better things in Indonesia and Sweden, where the cost of iPhone is $865 and $796, respectively.
The cheapest iPhone you can buy on the territory of the country of origin: USA for a brand new iPhone 6 asking only $598. Russia found itself in the middle of the list. The average price for a smartphone is approximately $695.
Note that the local price of the iPhone may include import tariffs and sales taxes, as well as the difference in foreign exchange rates – all factors over which Apple has no control. The cost of any goods in any currency is a very abstract value. In practice it is much more important, what is the ratio of its price and the income of the buyer.
