iPhone 6 Price in South Africa

We have discovered some information about iPhone 6 Pricing in South Africa. We can't confirm how accurate these prices are however they have been reported by more than one source.

Let us explain how this table works... The US price is the the outright price in US. Don't get confused with the $199 price that is on contract, these are the outright prices in the US. The SA price is what our sources suggest the price will be. The exchange rate is the SA Price divided by the US Price to work out how much we as South Africa's are paying per dollar for the iPhone. Remember there are import duties and shipping costs to bring the iPhone to South Africa.

iPhone 6 iPhone 6 Plus
US Price SA Price Conversion Rate US Price SA Price Conversion Rate
16GB $649 R11 799 $1 = R18,18 $749 R13 999 $1 = R18,69
64GB $749 R12 999 $1 = R17,35 $849 R15 499 $1 = R18,25
128GB $849 R14 599 $1 = R17,19 $949 R16 999 $1 = R17,91

What is strange about these prices is that an iPhone 6 128GB is the same price as the iPhone 6 Plus 64GB in the US but in South Africa it is expected to be R500 more. Only time will tell how accurate these figures are. We suspect they are reasonable accurate.

Apple says the new iPad Air is 18% thinner than the previous generation thanks to improvements to the display manufacturing process. The display also introduces an anti-reflective coating that Apple says makes iPad Air 2’s display 56% less reflective.

The iPad Air 2 includes an A8X chip that Apple says includes 2nd-gen 64-bit architecture and 3 billion transistors for 40% faster CPU and 2.5x faster GPU performance.  The new device also includes the M8 motion tracking chip and barometer previously available on iPhone. In addition, iPad Air 2 gets an updated 8 megapixel iSight camera with 1.12u pixels, f/2.4 aperture, and 1080p video recording capabilities. Other specs include up to 2.8x faster WiFi performance with 802.11ac with MIMO and increased support for up to 20 LTE bands.

iPad Air 2 is expected to reach South Africa before December. iPad Air 2 Pricing in South Africa is unknown but it's fair to assume the price will remain the same as the iPad Air.
