Apple Product Prices Increase in Europe and Canada
Apple is on a roller coaster ride regarding its fluctuating prices. As the price for high end Retina 5K Display iMac with 27 inch screen decreased to $2,299 from $2,499, Apple raised prices of some other products in Canada and Europe.
Prices have increased in Italy, Ireland, Germany, France, Portuguese, Netherlands, Finland and other European Union nations due to US Dollar’s unchanged strong currency value. Prices of Apple products increased to a maximum of €600 in Europe ($669) and CA$400 in Canada ($327).
Starting today, the 21.5 inch and 27 inch iMac models without Retina would be 150 – 300 Euros more expensive. Base model will be available for €3,399 instead of €2,999 while the high end version’s price has increased from €3,999 to €4,599.
Mac mini base model is now €569 after the €50 increase. The mid tier model will be available for €819 and top-tier for €1,129 rising by nearly 100 Euros, though MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and MacBook with 12 inch screen have not experienced the price change.
In the meantime in Canada, the 21.5 and 27 inch iMac models without retina have had an increase of 100 to 150 dollars. The price for Mac mini will increase between the ranges of $50 to $120. However, Mac Pro prices rose between $200 – $400.
