Apple increases iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus prices in Canada

Earlier today, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that Apple has sold over 700 million iPhones since it released the first device in 2007. Apple launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in Canada last September and these quickly became its best-selling smartphones and were met with the usual long lineups and record sales.

Today, just after the Apple Watch “Spring Forward” event, Apple increased the pricing for both the unlocked iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on its online store. The reason for the sharp increase is the exchange rate with the US dollar, and is similar to what we saw with App Store pricing. Here’s the new Canadian pricing:

iPhone 6 (no term):
– 16GB: $839 (was $749)
– 64GB: $969 (was $859)
– 128GB: $1,099 (was $969)

iPhone 6 Plus (no term):
– 16GB: $969 (was $859)
– 64GB: $1,099 (was $969)
– 128GB: $1,229 (was $1,079)
