Russians will have to work more than 46 days to buy the iPhone 15 Pro

Picodi Russia analysts compared local prices for the iPhone 15 Pro (128 GB) with salaries and calculated the “iPhone index”, that is, the cost of a smartphone expressed in working days.

In Russia, the new flagship in the basic configuration, the iPhone 15 Pro with 128 GB, was priced at 146,990 rubles (40,000 rubles more than last year).

The average salary in Russia, according to Rosstat, is 76,604 rubles, or 66,645 rubles after taxes. Thus, the average Russian needs 46.3 working days to raise money to buy an iPhone 15 Pro, as long as he saves all the money earned during those days.

Compared to last year’s “iPhone index”, the number of working days required in Russia increased by 6.6 days.

  • 2023 – 46.3 days.

  • 2021 – 42.1 days;
  • 2020 – 47.5 days;
  • 2019 – 47 days;
  • 2018 – 48.2 days;
