Apple raise prices and blame exchange rates

Apple have put the prices of some of their products up by around 20% and blamed current exchange rates.

Apple have increased prices this week. The 12″ MacBook Air went up from £1,049 to £1,249 – an increase of 19%. The 13″ version web from £999 to £1,249.

The pound has dropped 18% against the US dollar since the EU referendum in June.

It’ll be interesting to see if other companies follow Apples direction. Its yet to be seen how this all pans out for those travelling abroad and looking to purchase electronic goods.
