iPhone 13, AirPods and MacBooks drop in price in Brazil with a lower Apple dollar – Celular – Tecnoblog

Some models of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 have new prices in Brazil since this Tuesday (8); the change was also seen on MacBooks, AirPods and Apple Watch. The values ​​remain the same in the US, meaning this is just a variation on the “Apple dollar” – which resulted in some weird numbers.

For example, the iPhone 12 Mini now starts at R$5,505 at Apple’s official store; before it was R$ 5,699. In turn, the iPhone 13 Pro costs BRL 9,176 (against BRL 9,499 until yesterday).

According to calculations of technoblog, this means that the Apple dollar for iPhones dropped from R$9.59 to R$9.43, on average. The reduction is small, but it can already break a branch, especially since these cell phones are usually sold at a good discount – you can follow this through Achados do TB, in our WhatsApp and Telegram groups.

It is worth noting that the “Apple dollar” varies between different product categories. For example, when it comes to Macs, the company is using a conversion rate of R$12.50 compared to prices charged in the US. (Until yesterday, this amount was R$13 on average.)

The Mac Mini remains the most affordable model, and now starts at R$8,370. If you have your eye on a MacBook, Apple charges R$16,645 for the entry-level version with an M1 processor.

Accessory prices, meanwhile, just got weirder. For example, the Apple Watch Series 3 started to cost two thousand, five hundred it is a reals – was this real there really necessary? The same goes for the kit with 4 AirTags (R$ 1,211) and for the AirPods Max (R$ 6,691).

The commercial dollar is at R$5.06 today. The difference between this quotation and the Apple dollar is explained, in general, by the payment of taxes and the premium value that the company charges for its products in Brazil.
