iPhone more expensive in Russia by the end of November




Representatives of the network of electronics stores said that suppliers of frozen prices before Christmas, despite the increase in the dollar and the euro. However, some experts argue that price fixing is illusory. Leading analyst at Mobile Research Group Eldar Murtazin, in particular, suggests a sharp jump in the price of the iPhone and iPad in the near future.


The fact that prices are not rising, untrue, reports Snob . Prices have increased and will continue to grow. Only in one case, fluctuations do not affect the price tag when the goods have already been introduced in Russia and sold to the Russian stock at a certain price. Such goods today will last for two to three months. New goods imported under the new prices. This can be seen in the new iPad: they differ in price from old not like before, three or four thousand, and seven to ten thousand. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was partly introduced at the old rate, so the first half of the week it sold 35 000, then the price has risen to 37,000.

Another point not taken into account in November each year manufacturers traditionally lower prices for their wares, usually 3-6%. This year was no markdown. And due to the fact that no one has reduced the price for retail partners and accordingly, we can say that prices increased by these percentages.

What will happen next? The Russian market is the largest in Europe and one of the largest in the world. Nobody can not ignore – or Apple, or other companies. Until the last moment they will bite into this market and try to keep prices at a reasonable level, but the same Apple for two weeks to raise the price of a new delivery of iPhone, says expert. While they are almost the same as in the United States , i.e., one of the world’s lowest.

According to the current exchange rate cost “basic” version of the iPhone 6 is about $ 690, which is similar to the US ($ 650 excluding local taxes or $ 700 including tax) and more affordable than in the UK, where the price of 540 pounds, which is higher than 40 000 rubles. Above all cost trends in the euro area – for example, in Italy it is at about 730 euros, which is already exceeding 43 000 rubles.
