Who pays the most for an iPhone? Report breaks down relative pricing around the globe
If you want a good deal on an iPhone, don't buy it in an i-CountryThe figures chart sales of the iPhone 6 over the past couple years, converting local prices to US dollars and showing just how much of a premium users in all these countries end up paying.
