One of the most controversial issues after the launch of Apple’s iPhone 14 family has been the rise in prices experienced by the mobile phones that make it up. Now a study by HelloSafe Spain emphasizes this issue, reaching record numbers in some ways.
The prices of iPhones vary significantly in different countries around the world. So that It doesn’t cost you the same money to buy it here than to do it in the United States or Japan, where it is cheaper to buy the new iPhone 14; while in Brazil and Turkey it is where they are most expensive. But what does the study say about Spain?
This is the price of the iPhone 14 in Spain
Spain is one of the countries in Europe where iPhones are more expensive, especially compared to neighboring countries such as Portugal or France. According to the study, The 1TB iPhone 14 Pro Max is the most expensive model in Spain, with a price of 1,829 euros. On the other hand, the most affordable model in Spain is the second generation iPhone SE, with an average price of 489 euros.
The study also points out that Spain is in the mid-range iPhone pricing compared to other countries in Europe. In general, Scandinavian countries have the highest prices, while Eastern European countries have the lowest prices.
The price of the iPhone 14 in Spain is higher than in other European countries like France, Italy or Germany. In addition, he points out that the price difference between the most basic models and the most advanced ones is greater in Spain than in other places. This, together with the increase in prices, has caused many users to start looking for more affordable alternatives, whether they are old iPhone models or other mobile brands.
Regarding the price differences between provinces, the study found that the inhabitants of the Balearic Islands are those who spend the most on the iPhone 14with an average price of 1,053 euros, while the inhabitants of Cantabria spend the least, with an average price of 817 euros.
The price has tripled
The evolution of the value of Apple smartphones has increased progressively in recent years, going to cost 400 euros until reaching about 2,000 euros for the iPhone 14 Pro Max in its best version. This translates into an increase that is close to 1,000 euros, tripling its price in a period of 15 years.
A rather striking aspect is that the price of the standard version of the iPhone 14 Pro Max (1,469 euros) is higher than the minimum wage in Spain (1,080 euros). However, the country is in the sixth position of European regions with the best selling price for the phone from the American company. Worldwide, it occupies position number 20. A situation that is beginning to be alarming and that once again reopens the debate on whether it is so worth paying that amount for a mobile.
