Trade in is **** here in CH. In Germany my 14 Pro Max 256GB gives roughly 750€, in Switzerland 509 francs…I was looking for iPhone 15 Pro Max 256GB tho, looks unchanged to me didn’t it?

@adrianlondon
Germany: 949€ 797€ for me, since as a Swiss citizen I can purchase tax free in Germany/EU.
Yes but the Swiss have $$$ and don't buy 2nd hand, so you cannot expect anything from trading in 🤣

Honestly I was always going to keep the 11 Pro as a backup phone, it works perfectly and to me it's worth more than 150 francs since I cannot buy as good and ready set-up with all my stuff including banking apps for 150.

Just 35 was a complete joke, why bother, it's a like a couple of beers in ZH.

Have you ever been to a streedfood festival in ZH? That’s barely a kebob there lol.

Btw, you are right. 14 Pro Max was 1419.- for 256GB, while 15 Pro Max is 1299.-

I would like to know what went into Tim mind lol. I was scared when I heard titanium finish. I expected 150-200.- rise

I was going to say that I don't see the lowered prices in Germany because €1.449 for the base 15PM seems way too high still, but turns out last year it was €1.579, so I guess they did go down.

That's still way more markup than there used to be, even taking into account sales tax & currency fluctuations & all that.

Glad to see that the iPhones are now priced back to what would be expected, but its a little awkward for the iPad pricing which is still way out of whack.. I remember the iPad Air getting a price bump last year after it was released to "adjust to the fx rate", shame they are not so quick to go the other way. Mac are also in slightly affected, but not as much as iPad.

Yeah, I was wondering myself. The 14 Pro Max was more expensive, with the same storage, than the 15" M2 Air laptop. Which to me is nuts. A nice phone vs a nice laptop, I think the laptop should win.

When people were saying the 15 was going to get more expensive, since I'm stuck to the 512Gb model (I currently use 310Gb), it meant the 15 Pro Max with this amount of storage pushing $2k.

Look at our favourite toppreise. You can get an S23 Ultra, Fold 5 or Xperia 1 V for far less. In fact, yesterday, the difference between the Apple store iPhone 14 Pro Max with 512Gb and S23 Ultra with 512Gb was $600. I thought it was plain insane to make it bigger and I wouldn't have bought one not because I cannot afford it but out of principle, I hate being mugged.

Yea, same. I mean, I barely use 130gb rn. I’m more than happy to get a cheap(er). I filled a form to „wirkaufens.de“ to sell my 14 PM and got 970€, so that’s basically roughly 200€ (280 if I decide to pay pay Swiss taxes) for the upgrade. So for a device upgrade with new battery, warranty and stuff it’s a nobrainer. As I travel a lot, having just an usb cable with me (+ watch) is pretty awesome.

Basically their sales dropped so they are going to try and get some back by putting the price back to what it was for ages. Inflation has not gone down.

The iPad Air 5 is still £669 on the site, hopefully this also goes back to its launch price of £569, in line with the iPhones.

Why is everyone celebrating the UK pricing of the new iPhone. Pricing parity between GBP and USD means we’re paying more than 20% more than our American friends. Wake up man!

You can't blame Apple for UK's high VAT. The pre-VAT starting price of the 15 Pro is around £832 which at the current exchange rate is around $1,039 USD. That's only $40 or 4% higher than the $999 pre-sales tax starting price of the same phone in the U.S.

In the United Kingdom, Apple has made the price of the newly announced iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models £100 cheaper across all configuration options than the equivalent iPhone 14 Pro models when they were launched last year.

iPhone-15-Pro-lineup.jpg

Last year's iPhone 14 Pro started at £1,099, but the newly announced iPhone 15 Pro starts at £999. The full price range is as follows:
  • iPhone 15 Pro – 128GB - £999
  • iPhone 15 Pro – 256GB - £1,099
  • iPhone 15 Pro – 512GB - £1,299
  • iPhone 15 Pro – 1TB - £1,499
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max – 256GB - £1,199
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max – 512GB - £1,399
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max – 1TB - £1,599
The ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ Max is priced starting at £1,199, but that's only because Apple has eliminated the 128GB storage tier for that device. It now starts at 256GB, and £1,199 is the same price Apple charged for the 256GB iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Pre-orders for the new ‌iPhone 15‌ Pro models will open on Friday, September 15, with shipping to begin on Friday, September 22.

So it was the currency exchange rate, I wonder how many will put their hands up at being wrong?

Bump on prices in Australia. $100 for the regular size phones, a bit less for 15 plus, and I didn't write down the previous storage tier prices so that pro max difference is probably not as bad as it looks.

Before:
A$1399 14 A$1579 14 plus A$1749 14 pro A$1899 14 pro max

Now:
A$1499 15 A$1649 15 plus A$1849 15 pro A$2199 15 pro max

Well, in AU the 15 Pro (256GB) went up by $150 compared to the 14 Pro (256GB).

Message received loud and clear, Apple, I won’t be upgrading again this year.

You need to wake up because you don’t have a clue what you are talking about. The US prices are without tax!
@waquzy. I don’t think US sales tax is anywhere near 20%
