Apple raises the prices of both the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c in France
French Apple iPhone buyers are going to have to shell out some extra cash to buy the new Apple iPhone 5s and the Apple iPhone 5c. The Cupertino based tech titan raised the price of both new iPhone models right on its French web site. The size of the increase s aren't staggering with the 16GB iPhone 5s adding €10 ($13.66 USD), the 32 GB model tacking on €12 ($16.40 USD) and the 64 gig model getting hiked in price by €18 ($24.59 USD). The Apple iPhone 5c's two storage options, 16GB and 32GB, saw its prices raised €10 and €12 respectively.

The reason for the price increase has to do with changes in the foreign exchange market that reduced Apple's profit margin. Most likely Apple was getting fewer dollars back for the Euros it was receiving from the sale of the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c in France. Apple recently did the same thing with paid app prices in the Japanese App Store, raising prices on Thursday to make up for a weaker Yen.
