    Wow.

    Surely that can’t be right?

    That seems outrageous

    Oh is it? I misheard, I thought it was increasing in size over the 11 Pro Max.

    This...changes things.

    A lot of complaints about not going to usb-c, I honestly don’t remember the last time I plugged in my iPhone to change it - wireless charger beside the bed, one in the kitchen and one build into the car so just never need to.

    Wow.

    The US quotes price without VAT. Most states have a different sales tax and I found electronic stores always quoted ex vat in store and you added the extra at the till.

    That excludes US sales tax. So + up to 9.5% depending on the location.

    Still a good deal to buy in the US versus here, but it's not $699 (unless you go to Delaware?)

    You got the Irish price wrong to start with.

    No was announced at last months event.

    I presumed it could be pre ordered after today’s event as they were holding out releasing the A14 chip until they announced it in the iPhone but it’s still “coming in October” while the 12 series can already be pre ordered.

    Weird.

    Thanks for that. I hadn't actually spotted sit before and want to pick up a new tablet and nothing on the android side ever caught my eye.

    Is Dollar prcing an error?

    And you're probably excluding US taxes as people always do.

    Just took a look, the 12 Pro Max is 6.7″ and 11 Pro Max is 6.5″ - so slightly bigger, no?

    Not the same spec and is €409, so how is that sub €400?

    12 Pro Max is 6.33 inches x 3.07 inches x 0.29 inches

    11 Pro Max is 6.22 inches x 3.06 inches x 0.32 inches

    You have your Irish figures way off. The 12 isn’t even that price, never mind the mini.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,346 ✭✭✭ pad199207


    Will they ever bring in the pay monthly finance to Ireland

    It is not an error.

    iPhone 12 is €815 in ireland that equals €673 exc VAT which is US$790 so the diference is not that big.

    The iphone 12 is not €815 it's €915.

    Are you actually reading anything properly?


  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 19,521 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Mr.S


    €45 for the MagSafe Charger is a fairly pricey :eek:

    It never was, it had a limited release (3 countries I think). I thought the mini would change that but apparently not.

    Right and you’re factoring in that we pay 21% sales tax as the reason for the difference in prices?

    Pre VAT: €643.85 current conversion rate $756

    Not a major issue compared to $699

    Very strange, If i was to buy one from amazon UK would it work normally here? Radio etc

    Were you hoping to go for one of the Pros?

    I have always went for the flagship model yeah. Not the larger Max/Plus models though, always too big for me. Same goes for this year, it's either the 12 or 12 Pro. Or don't buy one at all and hope for 120Hz in a year :eek:

    I'm sure there'll be plenty of 3rd party options on it.

    A couple of people mentioned earlier they had a couple of HomePods. Anybody able to answer this question for me as well? I'll probably order from the Apple UK store if it works ok in Ireland without having to change regions or any of that headache.
