NZ, US Apple iPhone SE, iPad Pro prices compared
Posted on 23-Mar-2016 10:09 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.

New Zealand consumers often pay more than their overseas counterparts for hardware.

In recent years Apple has done a better job than most rivals when it comes to reducing the gap between New Zealand and US prices. How do the Apple iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro measure up?

There are two iPhone SE models. The 16GB phone sells in New Zealand for NZ$750. The same phone sells in the US for US$400. At today’s exchange rate of 1.48 and taking GST into account, New Zealanders pay a 10 premium over US prices.

The premium for a 64GB iPhone SE is 12 percent.

New Zealand prices for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro are close to US prices. At the time of writing the premiums paid in New Zealand are between three and four percent.

Given the New Zealand dollar fluctuates, this is close to parity.
