    Default iPhone 5s 64 gig is $1149(Australian) wow

    Hey guys I just saw that apple increased the price I the iPhone 5s. Wtf.
    This price is on the Australia website for the 64 gig iPhone.
    That's pretty pricy. An extra $129 I'm thinking it's maybe cause if the finger print sensor. That's still pretty ridiculous.

    Don't know where you're seeing that but it's $849 on Apples website.

    A pretty significant detail missing from your initial post...but that does suck for you guys, I'm not sure if I would personally upgrade at that price point.

    Out of curiosity...was the iPhone always inflated (vs. the U.S. pricing point) in Australia?

    it depends upon the local taxes and transportation cost too. iPhone 5 16 gb costs around $800 in india too. so, it is better to ask some of my relative to bring the 5S from US.

    I have family in Australia. They say Apple products became extremely popular over
    the last couple of years overtaking Nokia devices. These prices don't surprise me.
    People are shelling out the money.

    The prices didn't go up because apple figured they could rip us off because their devices are popular, the prices went up because our dollar went down relative to the US and analysts predict will continue to go down. Samsung and the rest will be increasing their prices as well to account for it. It's just how it works
