Brazil is dearest country for iPhone

Monday 16 September 2013 | 10:05 CET | News
The Apple iPhone is dearer in Brazil than anywhere else in the world, according to a survey by Bloomberg news agency. The price is 57 percent higher than in the US, it found. The price charged in Brazil for an unlocked iPhone 5 was BRL 2,399 at the time of the survey or USD 1016.74, compared with USD 649 for the same version of the device in the US. After the release of the iPhone 5s, the price of the previous model in Brazil has fallen to BRL 2299, but it would still put the country at the top of the list (USD 974).
