Apple has readjusted the prices of several products for sale in Brazil due to the high dollar. The change affects iPads, accessories and computers like MacBooks Air and Pro, Mac Pro and Mini and also iMacs. The biggest variation was due to the iMac Pro, which increased R $ 15 thousand in relation to the original price: from R $ 37,999, its value went to R $ 52,999. It is worth mentioning that the measure did not reach iPhones for sale at the Apple Store.
The survey was carried out by the specialized website MacMagazine last Wednesday (18) and takes into account the changes after the dollar broke, for the first time, the R $ 5 barrier. The new values appeared after the launch of the new MacBook Air, Mac Mini and iPad Pro.
Macs, iMac and MacBooks
After the iMac Pro, which leads the price increase, the product that most “suffered” from the readjustment was the 27-inch iMac 5K, whose intermediate model rose 19.9%: from R $ 17,599 to R $ 21,099. Launched in 2017, the all-in-one has a Retina 5K screen and a seventh generation Intel processor. Right behind, with an increase of 19.3%, appears the top-of-the-line version, equipped with Core i7 quad core 4.2 GHz.
The more advanced 13-inch MacBook Pro goes from R $ 17,799 to R $ 20,899. The increase in the line of professional notebooks was between 13.1% to 17.4%, depending on the model. The smallest change was in the entry-level MacBook Air, which was just $ 600 more expensive.

iPads and accessories
Taking into account all products that have undergone price changes, the increase in the iPad Pro is second only to the iMac Pro. The models of 11 and 12.9 inches Wi-Fi + Cellular were the ones that most changed, with values that go from R $ 6,799 to R $ 8,499 and from R $ 8,399 to R $ 10,499, respectively. Following, the same tablets appear in the versions with Wi-Fi only.
Among the accessories, the biggest increase also has to do with the iPad Pro: the 2nd generation Apple Pencil, which went from R $ 979 to R $ 1,249, that is, a 21.6% increase. The Smart Keyboard Folio, compatible with the iPad Pro of 12.9 “, rose more than 20%, going from R $ 1,349 to R $ 1,699.
