• Strong U.S. Exchange Rates Causes Price Increase for Apple Products Internationally



    Apple has recently raised prices for a number of products in many countries on their Online Stores due to the strength of the U.S. dollar. Some of these product price increases are in countries including Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, New Zealand, Portugal, and Sweden. Devices like Apple’s iPad, iPhone, MacBook Air, iPod touch, and MacBook Pro are all included in the international price increase.

    The price of the 15-inch MacBook Pro in France went from €1,999 to €2,249 (approximately $2135 to $2402 USD). As for the unlocked iPhone 6 in Canada, the price went from $749-$969 to $839-$1,099. Prices occasionally get adjusted by Apple depending on the change in exchange rates. Although the prices on certain products have increased, U.S. customers should be happy to know that the company recently decreased the Apple TV from $99 to $69.

      Isn't Apple keeping their money in Ireland? That is where their company is because that is where its money is right? Did exchange rate change much in Ireland?
      Now it seeks U.S. funds exchange rate because U.S. dollar is higher, but still keep the money outside U.S.
      Sure they will quickly adjust how much they charge people internationally calling themselves U.S. company, but will not pay for the taxes for making money as a U.S. company....
