According to a study by Money SuperMarket, it is in the Philippines that the iPhone 13 is the most expensive. As part of its annual survey, the UK price comparison company took several factors into account: the price of the iPhone and the average minimum wage of each nation.
If Apple offers its smartphones at lower prices in some markets, the restricted minimum wage makes it difficult to buy a new iPhone. This is why Money SuperMarket focuses on the working time required with the purchase of one of the smartphones in the range. The study assumed that a person works an average of 8 hours per day.
In the Philippines, the average citizen has to work 97 days to buy a new iPhone. “Apple fans living in the Philippines will have to work an average of 775 hours to earn enough money”, notes the study. In second place is Brazil, with an estimated working time of 86 days.
It is visibly in Switzerland that the iPhone 13 is the cheapest to consumers. All it takes is working for a few days to afford a brand new Apple smartphone. “With an average annual salary of $ 79,270, the Swiss need less than a workweek (34 hours) to buy the latest iPhone ”, details the report.
In France, a standard iPhone 13 is just over 90 hours of work. More affordable, the iPhone 13 mini only requires 80 hours of work, compared to 115 hours for the iPhone 13 Pro and 125 hours for the iPhone 13 Pro Max, the most premium edition.
