    Hi guy's it's making me laughing this morning, I was looking just for fun at preorder and everything is available in Canada. So it make me think that because Apple has hiked the price they won't set a record in Canada it's 250$ more for the basic iPhone 6S 16gigs in Canada VS USA then imagine the rest. Thank you APPLE FOR hiking the prices.

    I think you need to look at the carriers and the exchange rate. The Canadian dollar has dropped.

    The prices are the same here.

    This has nothing to do with the Canadian dollars in the past it was the same price only that the U.S. dollars was stronger it's only a trick for Apple and even our Canadian carriers to steal more money from the customers.

    You can blame Apple if it helps you sleep at night, but you're barking up the wrong tree...

    Wha?????? Apple is pulling a trick for the Canadian dollar to go down?!?!! Apple is in cahoots with Canadian carriers to drop the Canadian dollar so they can charge more for the phones in Canada while they remain the same price in the U.S.?!?!?

    Oh Lordy......

    Agreed.

    The 64GB version goes for $299USD on contract which translates to about $397CAD. Yet evey carrier is charging $530 for the same model. For no reason, the 6S is $50 more than what the 6 was selling for last month.

    You are irate over less than $30 (US)? Seriously?

    899 CAD to USD - Convert 899 Canadian Dollar to United States Dollar - Currency Converter and Currency Exchange Rate Calculator 899 CAD = 677.77443 USD

    Talk to the Canadian carriers and investigate the issue with the Canadian dollar.
    The price is exactly the same here.

    The contract price is based on the outright cost of the phone... When you get a phone on contract (subsidized a phone) you get the phone for less than the outright price. Usually the subsidized amount is about $500 off the outright price of the phone.

    We got it the third time.

    If you convert the off-contract 64GB price, Apple is listing it for $100 more after the currency conversion.

    No actually you're not getting it at all.

    It's the drop in the Canadian dollar.

    Believe whatever makes you happy.

    No it wasn't. I suggest you actually research before having a tantrum. I bought my phone from Apple Canada last year and it was still more expensive than Apple USA. It's not scalping. It's not a conspiracy. Other manufacturers have also raised the pricing since the tanking of the dollar. Three months ago our pricing on the older phones went up as well BECAUSE OF THE FALLING DOLLAR.

    If you really think in previous years our pricing was the same as the U.S. then you live in an alternate reality or simply weren't buying at the time. We were at least $100 more at launch last year. And the year before. And the year before....

    FYI EDIT

    The exact same phone I paid 969 CDN for at launch was increased to 1098 CDN about three months ago when the dollar free falled. The exact. Same. Phone. The change? The dollar crashed.

    Some people need to pay more attention to markets, finance and currency.

    Yes, once you convert the US price to CAD you get the effect of the Canadian dollar. Charging an additional $100 - $150 outside the dollar conversion cant be pinned on the currency.

    It's more than just exchange rate. There's over head. Import taxes and fees.

    You can't seriously think the only thing that affects pricing is an exchange rate? When the dollar bottoms out, the entire cost of doing business, especially when we have to import in the product, increases.
