How much will the iPhone 7 cost in South Africa?

Over the last few days I have had many people asking me how much the iPhone 7 will cost in South Africa. In the past I have done my best to predict the pricing on new iPhones before they come into South Africa with some success. By looking at the current price on the iPhone and also what the latest Samsung Galaxy phone is priced at.

However with the volatile exchange rate nothing is predictable but I thought I would give it a go anyway.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 32GB started selling at R13 999. Apple is expected to drop the 16GB option in favour of a 32GB base model but will keep the price the same. It is very possible that we could is a R400 – R500 increase in my guessed pricing due to the exchange rate.

Here is my guess at the pricing in South Africa:

Capacity iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus
32GB R13 999 R15 999
128GB R15 999 R17 999
256GB R17 999 R20 999
