Why is there another significant raise in the price of the new iPhones for Germany?

    I'm quite baffled to be honest....I was okay when Apple raised the 16gb price tag to 699€ but now it's 739€ which is quite a step a again. Even more so when considering the freaking cheap flash storage and having only 16gb!

    Additionally, when going for the 64gb version you no longer have to pay the usual +100€! No! Now it is plus 110€! 64gb is 849€ in Germany.

    If the QE of the Euro does not end then you may expect the price of Apple products to continue to go up in Europe.

    iPhone prices went up with 40 for the 6s and 50 for the 6s plus and indeed 110 for a storage upgrade. I noticed only the iPhones became more expensive, so not really fair. The problem is the bad conversion rate.

    iPhone 6s Plus will be €959 in The Netherlands and Germany and that's $1075.

    If you convert the US-price and add taxes from the Netherlands, you'll get:

    849 + 21% = $1027 That is €916

    Actually the rise in price is fair, although they could've just been nice and keep it how it was. My debitcard already ran away with the iPhone 5 :D

    Well, there's the decline of the Euro verses the US Dollar. Around 1 Sep 14, the euro rate was 1.31. Around 1 Sep 14, the rate is 1.14. I doubt Apple wants to "eat" the decline. I also suspect when the madness in Europe is over, the euro will once again rise.
