Japan’s Apple products have seen a 25 percent price increase


Apple has just announced that it will be raising the prices of select iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch models in the Japanese market by up to 25 percent.

The Nikkei Asia was the first to publish the price increases, which were brought on by a weakening yen and a widening interest rate differential between Japan and the United States.

There has been a 20% increase in the price of the iPhone 13 in Japan since it was released earlier this year, making it the most expensive smartphone in the country at the time of release. The latest iPhone SE with 64GB of storage now costs 62,800 yen (about $464), which is 5,000 yen (about $37) higher than before. An iPhone 13 Pro 128GB now costs 144,800 yen ($1,069 approximately), an increase of 22,000 yen (about 162 dollars).

The M2 MacBook Pro was released last month and, as a result, Apple hiked the price of Macs in Japan by almost 10%. As a result, no Mac products were increased in price today; instead, the prices of the iPad and iPad Air models were raised by 10,000 yen ($74).
