Apple returns to sell in Turkey, but Brazil still has higher prices


Apple has turned back and is selling its products again in Turkey. Earlier this week, the company had suspended sales at the country’s official online store because of the severe economic crisis the nation is going through.

After blocking the inclusion of items in the cart, the site already allows the selection and completion of purchases again, according to a test carried out by the report. When simulating the purchase of a 128GB iPhone 13 it is informed that the delivery period varies between 5 and 6 weeks, for example.

Despite the possibility of purchase, the Turks had a surprise in prices. According to the 9to5Mac website, local values ​​increased by 25% due to the devaluation of the Turkish lira against the dollar.

Even with the economic crisis, the macReports website visited some physical Apple units in Istanbul and reported long lines of people waiting to shop. According to the page, store employees were asking people to leave because virtually no products would be sold.

Store workers said the problem with the country’s currency had caused stocks of goods to be extremely low. These days, only AirPod models were still on sale.
