Customers will find prices in the re-opened store much higher than they were last week. A 16GB base model iPhone 6 now goes for 53,990 Rubles, a 35% increase in the Russian sales price. 53,990 Rubles is approximately worth $980 USD. The 16 GB iPhone 6 lists for $649 USD, excluding taxes.
Other models of the iPhone have similarly increased in price, with the iPhone 5c now costing 29,990 Rubles, while the top of the line 128GB iPhone 6 Plus goes for the dear price of 77,990 Rubles.
Mac buyers will be hit hard with higher prices too, as a Retina Display iMac will take almost 200,000 Rubles out of a Russian’s bank account.
Apple also readjusted Russian App Store prices on Friday, in order to account for the exchange rate fluctuations.
