Apple might have made a lot of people happy by removing 16GB iPhones and iPad devices off the shelf, but due to external factors, the pricing of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be increased in the UK and other European countries, and you can probably guess why.

iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus Prices Are Higher If You’re Residing in the UK or Other European Countries

According to sources close to the matter, Apple has increased prices in the UK by between 11-15 percent, depending on the model you’ll end up purchasing. Additionally, if the prices of both iPhones will be increased, then you can rest assure that you’ll be paying more for the accessories, as well as the iPad range, which to remind you, have had their prices reduced and storage increased.

These prices are the result of the Brexit vote, when the UK voted to leave the EU. As of right now, the pound is currently worth 11 percent less against the dollar than its pre-referendum average, and has fallen as far as 15 percent. However, it’s been reported that this will stabilize in the future. Since the UK chose to leave the EU, the Euro also took a hit, but it isn’t hit as badly as the pound. We have provided you with the updated price list right at the bottom for the iPhone and iPad devices.

  • iPhone 7 32GB model: £599
  • iPhone 7 128GB model: £699
  • iPhone 7 256GB model: £799
  • iPhone 7 Plus 32GB model: £719
  • iPhone 7 128GB model: £819
  • iPhone 7 256GB model: £919

The iPad Pro now starts at £549 for the 9.7-inch model and £729 for the 12.9-incher, with the Apple Pencil also increasing in price from £79 to £99. Apple has stated that pre-orders of both its iPhones will start from September 9, with shipment commencing on September 16.
