Cz Complete is Incomplete

Apple did not raise the price of the iPhone 14 only in the US. Everything is sad in other countries


iPhone has always been the most profitable to buy outside of our country. Due to the exchange rate difference, and with a personal purchase , Tax Free returns , the final cost of a new device was often noticeably lower than when buying in Russia. On September 7, Apple introduced a new line of iPhones , consisting of four models: iPhone 14 , iPhone 14 Plus , iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max . But what surprised users the most was the cost of new products. At the presentation, prices were announced, which coincided to a cent with last year’s prices for the entire iPhone 13 line.

To say that this made a lot of people happy is an understatement. After all, the remaining price, along with the strengthening of the dollar, give a chance that new devices will cost adequately. But not all countries are so lucky. Let’s compare prices for the iPhone 14 in different countries and determine where it is most profitable to buy new smartphones.

iPhone 14 – price in rubles

Prices, which are listed on the official website of Apple, warm the soul of many users. But it should be remembered that very often they are not final. In some regions, sales tax, which is the analog of our VAT, is included in the price only after the order is placed. For example, in the USA there is a state of New Hampshire where there is no sales tax, and the novelty can be purchased at the declared cost. And in some other states where this tax exists, you won’t be able to buy a smartphone at that price without paying it.


For ease of perception, we have translated all prices in the currencies of other countries into rubles at the current exchange rate. This will be the most obvious. All prices refer to basic versions of the iPhone and include taxes in most countries.

How much does the iPhone 14 cost:

  • USA – 48659.10 rubles.
  • Hong Kong – 53528.26 rubles.
  • Canada – 51014.98 rubles.
  • China – 52213.24 rubles.
  • Japan – 50519.92 rubles.
  • Turkey – 103254.10 rubles.
  • Germany – 60249.99 rubles.
  • UAE – 56216.62 rubles.

How much does the iPhone 14 Plus cost:


  • USA – 54749.10 rubles.
  • Hong Kong – 59735.33 rubles.
  • Canada – 57977.89 rubles.

  • Turkey – 133232.06 rubles.
  • Germany – 78343.08 rubles.

How much is the iPhone 14 Pro Max :

  • Hong Kong – 72925.36 rubles.
  • Canada – 71903.73 rubles.
  • China – 78324.21 rubles.
  • Japan – 69496.52 rubles.
  • Turkey – 146555.60 rubles.
  • Germany – 87389.62 rubles.
  • UAE – 77717.53 rubles.

As you can see, the most favorable prices for iPhones, as before, are in the USA. Closest to America crept Japan and Hong Kong. But the home market for Apple, as before, is a priority.

Where to buy iPhone 14 cheaper

However, do not forget what I said above about the sales tax. First of all, it will be necessary to find a tax-free state. And only after that you will be able to purchase an iPhone at the specified price. When buying an iPhone abroad, do not forget about a Tax-Free refund. This will allow you to return a very decent amount.

One of the most inadequate prices for the iPhone 14 at the moment is in Turkey. More than 100 thousand rubles for the basic version is, of course, a lot. Taking into account the fact that Turkey is today the main holiday destination for Russians, I do not advise planning the purchase of new products there. even parallel imports will be much more profitable than when buying from an official store in Turkey.

In general, we should wait for the hype to subside and see what the gray market and the Joom and AliExpress marketplaces will offer us. It is there that prices will be close enough to the real exchange rate, and it will turn out to save a lot on the purchase. The main thing is to have patience.

iPhone 14 – price in Europe

But the situation with maintaining the old prices for new iPhones does not apply to all countries. Due to the depreciation of the euro against the dollar, Apple had to increase the price of the iPhone 14 in Europe. Moreover, this increase has become quite tangible. Not 20-30 euros, but at least 100. And for some models, the increase reached 220 euros. Here are examples of prices for iPhone 13 in 2021 and iPhone 14 in 2022 :

  • iPhone 13 128 GB – 899 euros; iPhone 14 128 GB – 999 euros.
  • iPhone 13 256 GB – 1019 euros; iPhone 14 256 GB – 1129 euros.
  • iPhone 13 512 GB – 1249 euros; iPhone 14 512 GB – 1389 euros.
  • iPhone 13 Pro 128 GB – 1149 euros; iPhone 14 Pro 128 GB – 1299 euros.
  • iPhone 13 Pro 256 GB – 1269 euros; iPhone 14 Pro 256 GB – 1429 euros.
  • iPhone 13 Pro 512 GB – 1499 euros; iPhone 14 Pro 512 GB – 1689 euros.
  • iPhone 13 Pro 1 TB – 1729 euros; iPhone 14 Pro 1 TB – 1949 euros.

As you can see, the increase is quite significant. It is possible that with the strengthening of the euro, Apple will revise prices for European countries, but it is not known when this will happen and whether it will happen at all. But one thing is for sure: Apple has clearly demonstrated a reaction to the slightest fluctuations in exchange rates. Cupertino is not going to work at a loss and will immediately adjust the price upwards if the need arises.
