  • Apple Products in Europe and Canada Receive Price Increase

    Apple has increased prices on many products in Canada and Europe as the U.S. dollar still remains strong against international currencies. Countries that were affected by the price increase include Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and Portugal among others. Prices in the European Union nations increased by as much as $669 (€600) and Canada will be expecting an increase of up to $327 (CAD $400).

    Apple’s base iMac increased from €1,099 to €1,249, the high-end 27-inch iMac with no retina display increased from €1,799 to €2,099, Apple’s base model Mac Pro increased from €2,999 to €3,399, and the high-end Mac Pro went from €4,599 from €3,999. As for the company’s Mac mini, it is now €569 while the mid-tier is €819 and top-tier is €1,129. But the 12-inch MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro prices remain the same.

    The Cupertino-based company’s last price increase was not long ago and actually took place just over two months ago in March. Then two months before that in January, Apple raised App Store prices in Canada, UK, and the EU as well. A price increase in just two months time is definitely a lot, we wonder how long these prices will sustain before another increase happens.

      They use exchange rate difference to increase the prices.
      But last I check they keep their money in Ireland, so no that excuse does not fly.
      When it benefit them they are suddenly an American company, requiring American protection....
      Bring your money into U.S. and pay your taxes!! Then you get the advantage that comes with being American company.
