JAKARTA – Numerous official Apple distributors in Indonesia have announced the schedule to begin pre-orders for the series iPhone15 on October 20th. Along with this announcement, the official price of this latest iPhone series in Indonesia has finally been revealed. Unfortunately the price offered is more expensive than the previous series.
As reported by several sources, on Tuesday (17.10.2023) the price of each iPhone 15 series is even around IDR 1 million more expensive than the iPhone 14 series. One of the most obvious differences is especially noticeable in the price increase for iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
So why is the price of the iPhone 15 series higher than the previous series? The following is a complete explanation.
1. There is inflation
The inflation that has occurred recently across the world has had an impact on the increase in the exchange rate of the dollar against the rupee. The increase in the exchange rate of the dollar against the rupee is the main reason for the increase in the price of the iPhone 15 series compared to the previous series.
2. Customs taxes to be paid by authorized distributors
Customs taxes are also one of the reasons for the increase in price of the iPhone 15 series. Again linked to inflation, the increase in the exchange rate means that distributors have to pay more for customs taxes imposed in Indonesia. Therefore, several official Apple distributors in Indonesia such as Erajaya, iBox and so on always set prices higher than the official global price in the US market.
