iPhone 6 prices: SA vs the world

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are set to launch in South Africa on Friday, 24 October 2014 at retailers and mobile network operators around the country.

While no one has officially announced their prices yet, the recommended retail prices for Incredible Connection and Vodacom’s wholesale prices were leaked.

A number of commentators have complained that the new generation of iPhones are expensive, which raises the question as to how South Africa’s iPhone prices compare to the rest of the world.

In the table below, the leaked wholesale and recommended retail prices are compared to US and UK prices.

The local wholesale prices exclude VAT and profit, and US prices are quoted without sales tax.
