The price of Apple Macs has risen

Friday, October 28, 2016

The problem with price rises is not Brexit but the currency exchange fluctuations we have always had, according to a retail analyst.

It has been revealed that the new Apple Macs are significantly more expensive than previous versions, whilst some models which already exist have seen their prices rise by hundreds of pounds. Some reports have claimed the increase in price is due to Brexit. 

Retail analyst Teresa Wickham joined Yasmeen Khan and told her: "People are buying more tablets rather than the actual Mac. There are people who are Apple Mac enthusiasts, but I think they'll wait until they see if it's worth it at the end of the day.

"If you blame the pound value against the dollar, yes you could say that [Brexit is the problem], but it's really currency exchange more than anything else, and if Brexit has caused that at the moment then yes, but we've always had currency exchange problems."
