Just like last year, there will be no official prices from Apple for the iPhone 15 in Russia. Everything is in the hands of “gray” resellers and stores working on parallel imports.
Despite endless leaks, prices in dollars for the entire line remained the same, in Britain they even dropped 50 pounds. But in rubles they have grown noticeably.
Another difference from last year is that the iPhone 15 Pro Max has a 128 GB version, so although the smartphone actually hasn’t become more expensive, the model starts at $1,199 instead of $1,099.
Below is information about all versions of the iPhone 15 USA, Great Britain, UAE And Japan with translation into rubles from local currency. This helps to understand in which segment news appears in Russia after a couple of months.
❗️ Why these countries
The American market offers the world a “beacon” of prices for iPhones. If they performed there, they performed everywhere.
Britain, the United Arab Emirates and Japan most often pay attention to the whey market in Russia.
Prices for all iPhone 15s in each storage location
All models have increased in price in rubles
Although the prices in dollars are the same, due to the depreciation of the ruble, the models now cost 37% more than the iPhone 14 in September 2022.
In numbers it looks like this:
All prices are indicated at the exchange rate of September 13, 2023 (1 US dollar = 94.71 rubles.).
It is already known that in Russia at the start prices will reach 400,000 rubles, but within a week they will drop to 180,000 rubles.
We’ll wait later British Figures if we take into account the interest of sellers.
Although there were talks about the delay of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, all smartphones went on sale at the same time September 22nd.
