Apple iPhone 7, 7 Plus Pricing in UK higher by 16% because of Weaker pound post Brexit



Apple launched the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, and both the devices will be available for pre-order starting today in the US and some other countries. We already have all the pricing details about the device for many countries. If you are in the UK, and you thought that the existing iPhones are expensive as it is, then brace yourself as the new iPhones are going to cost you a lot more than that. Yes, all thanks to the currency fluctuations caused by the Brexit vote.

The new iPhone 7 in the UK will cost you £599, whereas the iPhone 6s was priced at £539 at the time of launch. Oh well, if you want the Plus model, then it will cost you £719. And this is just for the cheapest model i.e. the 32GB variant. So if you want the Jet Black variant, then you probably have to spend a lot more than that. For reference, the cheapest iPhone 6s Plus model was just £619 at the time of the launch. Clearly, we are looking at a difference of about £100 here in case of the Plus models.

Brexit Effect – Acer, LG & Samsung to Relocate London headquarters

You might say that the new iPhones come with double the storage as compared to last year. But the same iPhones with double the storage are not priced this much in the US. The iPhone 6s with 16GB of storage costs $649 and now the new iPhone 7 with 32GB of internal storage costs the same. So it is only in the UK that the prices are increased. The reason for the same is reported as the weak pound, that dipped in value against the dollar after the UK voted to leave the European Union.

Well, this is not usually the case with the iPhone rates. Consider Japan for example where the new iPhone 7 costs only ¥72,800 yen, whereas on the other hand the previously launched iPhone 6s was priced at ¥86,800 yen at the time of the launch. Do make a note that the price hike in the UK is not just limited to the iPhones alone. Various other accessories also got the price hike like the Apple pencil now costs £99 as compared to the £79 earlier. Even iPad Pro models, Apple watch bands etc all of them got a price hike now. So bottom line is that, if you are in the UK and if you are planning to buy an iPhone 7 or the iPhone 7 Plus, then get ready to spend some serious money.
