iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Priced Higher in Canada, Australia and Europe as U.S. Dollar Remains Strong

iphone6plus_finish_largeApple has set higher prices for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in Canada, Australia and other countries to reflect a strengthening U.S. dollar and fluctuating currency exchange rates.

The off-contract prices for the iPhone 6s Plus in Canada, for example, are $1,029, $1,159 and $1,289 CAD for 16GB, 64GB and 128GB of storage space respectively.

Comparatively, the iPhone 6 Plus cost $969, $1,099 and $1,229 in Canadian dollars for the same capacities prior to Apple's media event yesterday. That is $60 less for each model.

The off-contract prices for the iPhone 6s Plus in Australia are $1,229, $1,379 and $1,529 AUD for 16GB, 64GB and 128GB of storage respectively. Earlier this week, the iPhone 6 Plus retailed for $1,149, $1,299 and $1,449 in Australian dollars for the same storage sizes respectively.

Similarly, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have higher prices at launch than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in euro-based countries such as France, Germany, Italy and The Netherlands. The base 16GB iPhone 6 retailed for €699 last September, for example, while the 16GB iPhone 6s will debut for €739.

Not all countries have been affected by the exchange rate, however, as the iPhone 6s Plus is priced the same as the iPhone 6 Plus in the United Kingdom. iPhone 6 Plus was most recently priced at £619, £699 and £789 in the U.K. for 16GB, 64GB and 128GB respectively, while the iPhone 6s Plus will have equal prices.

The new iPhone 6s Plus retains the same pricing as the iPhone 6 Plus in the U.S.

Not really priced higher. Just an adjustment in currency conversion (for Canada anyways).
Yes but our salaries do not change with currency. For us, this is a price increase.

This is what really ticks me off .... when the Canadian Dollar was at parity with the US dollar a year or two ago ... it took forever for Apple to drop prices ....
But when the dollar is week .. heyyy .. lets bump up the prices as soon as we can.

Let us see how long the US dollar will stay strong when the FED finally admits that US economic recovery is weak and that QE4 is needed to keep afloat the economy.

Maybe if Apple can claim price changes in local exchange rates, then maybe they can pay local taxes rather than syphoning their sales and cash off abroad.

Totally. One year ago I bought my unlocked 64GB Space Gray 6 for $970.67 all in. The fact that this model has now not only crested but blown past the $1K mark just frustrates the hell out of me.
