Apple Raises Prices On All Stock on Apple Store UK – Blames Brexit

Post Brexit and the referendum in the UK; everything was kind of up in the air – but most things remained the same and very few companies reacted immediately in a knee jerk manner.

Some companies did though – Apple being one of them, and they laid the blame squarely at the feet of Brexit – even though it’s a long way off yet. So you may (or may not) have noticed the prices in the UK Apple Store have risen quite dramatically. £19 for a Lightning Cable, £38 if you want a complete charger for your iPhone!

So now there is an even more reason to make your Apple Accessory purchases from us. Just have a look at these price differences.

These are all single accessories, however some need to be bought together in order to function. So for example, you need a new charger for your iPhone 7. From Apple, you’re going to have to buy the plug and cable separately – and that’s going to cost you a whopping £38.00! And what if you’ve got an older phone such as an iPhone 4 or older? Surely a charger for that will be cheaper. Nope, again, £19 for a cable, £19 for a plug – together, £38 for a charger for a phone that was released in 2010. Ridiculous!

All our stock is made up of Official Apple products only. The only, single difference is that they don’t come in a retail box. The stock usually comes straight from surplus iPhone and iPad boxes, warrantied units etc. And when you consider some of the savings – why on earth would you shop at the Apple Store?
