How Much The iPhone Costs Around The World

How Much the iPhone Costs Around the World

The iPhone is popular. Not just here in Australia, but around the whole world. You might think you paid a lot for yours, but this map of iPhone 5s prices across the globe shows Australians might not have it so bad after all.

Put together by the folks over at Mobile Unlocked, ​the interactive map packs in a lot of data. Sure, you can see prices country by country in US dollars, but you can also switch include or exclude tax, and even see the price of a handset as a percentage of each country's GDP per person.

Of course, this isn't exactly a perfectly fair, apples-to-apples (har har) comparison; carrier subsidies affect a device's unlocked price, exchange rates change, etc. Still, the price (for a 16GB iPhone 5s) is coming directly from local Apple Stores or official suppliers, so this is as close and in-depth look as you're going to get. The bottom line? Be glad you're not in Turkey, because yeesh. [​Mobile Unlocked via ​Forbes]
