Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max is the company’s top-of-the-line model and it is rather pricey where it has a price start of $1,400 for the 512GB model. This is as expensive as an iPhone can get at the moment, and we’re sure that many are already complaining about it. However, it seems that it can’t quite beat how much it is priced in Brazil.
It seems that over in Brazil, the iPhone 12 Pro Max with 512GB of storage will cost you a whopping $2,535! Yup, for those living in Brazil, they will be paying more than $1,000 more than those who are living stateside. This doesn’t really come as a surprise due to the high taxes in the country for certain tech-related products.
Other countries outside the US aren’t faring that well either, where over in India, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is priced at $2,159, which is rather ironic given that these are supposed to be emerging markets, so it’s odd that Apple would price their products well out of reach for a lot of customers living in the region.
Countries like Brazil tend to levy a huge tax on products that aren’t made in the country, and even though Apple has shifted some of its production over to the country, there could be other reasons as to why the iPhones are still so expensive.
