With the recent climb in the exchange rate it was always going to have a huge effect on price of Apple products in South Africa and we did warn about that.

The price of iPhone‘s in South Africa recently climbed as much as R500 and could get worse. The iPhone 6 16GB started selling in South Africa for R9 999 and is now selling for R10 499. We expect the price of the iPhone 6s to come in at the same price point and the price of the iPhone 6 to drop to a starting price of R9 499.

Here is our expected outright price of the iPhone 6s in South Africa.
