Australia is a very reactive country in terms of markets, with an administration that does not hesitate to investigate company prices and possible price agreements. Apple has already paid the price twice. Today, the country is asking for explanations from Apple regarding the price differences between the devices sold in the USA and on its territory …
The Australian parliament has asked Apple to justify the price difference for some of its devices. Australia indeed considers the tariffs too different between the USA and its territory, and would like Apple to provide some explanations on this subject. In the past, Apple had already lowered its rates by 25% on the local App Store and is currently the subject of an investigation into the eBook price deal with five publishers.
The price differences reported by parliament range from $ 20 over $ 250 on some computer models.
