Interactive Map Shows Average Prices of iPhone 5S per Country

iphone price mapApple’s iPhones are notoriously expensive compared to Android models, but is there any consolation for Americans, who are also paying the lowest rate of $707.41 USD? For comparison, the costliest iPhones are in Jordan at a whopping $1091.01 USD. That’s a rather large margin of $516.40 USD.

Even when compared to national GDP, the US is 4th on the list at 1.3682% while India’s price is 22.32%. So while the US is paying the lowest price, Quatar, with its GDP of $100,889 has higher buying power and therefore, is paying less.

Here’s how the data was compiled:

All the data we’ve collected is based on the most popular 16GB version of the 5S, with all prices coming directly from the local Apple stores for each country or a listed official supplier from the Apple site that were available on November 18th 2013. As the iPhone 5S is launched in more countries we’ll be updating our index to show just how the prices compare to the rest of the world.
