This according to the most recent analysis by Picodi.com, which compares the official price of this device and the average salary in various countries on the six continents.

On the other hand, the average salary rates published on the websites of the competent authorities were used.

The iPhone 2020 Index was calculated from the official prices of the iPhone 12 Pro 128 Gb published on the official websites, Apple stores and authorized resellers. In addition, the average salary rates published on the websites of the competent authorities were used, which are valid for the release day of the new iPhone in each of the countries studied.

Net wages were obtained using local wage calculators. Average salary was divided into 21 – the average number of working days per month. In countries where the competent authorities use weekly rates, the salary was divided by 5.
