AS IF cutting out neighbourly relations and suffering embarrassing snubs from the wider world on possible trade deals wasn't enough, it now appears that Brexit has created perhaps the worst thing of all for the British citizen: iPhones prices are going up.
The cheapest model of the new iPhone 7 Plus, with 32GB of storage, is £719. That's £100 more than the iPhone 6S Plus at launch in late 2015. The smaller iPhone 7 is available from £599, a £60 increase compared to the cheapest iPhone 6S.
And, before you say anything, the device is being launched in the US at the same price as the iPhone 6S Plus.
Other more expensive Apple things you can look forward to are the Apple Pencil, which has jumped from a silly £79 to an insane £99.
The iPad Pro, which got a price cut in the US, has also gone up in the UK. The 12.9in model has risen from £679 to £729, and the 9.7in model from £499 to £549. Even the Apple Watch's Sport Band has gone up a tenner from £39 to £49.
There's no provable direct link to Brexit and Apple has certainly not said anything to that end, but it would be more than coincidence if the devaluation of the UK currency hadn't affected the situation.
Of course, Apple's largely fictional Ireland 'head office' with no walls, doors, windows or employees, and the company's subsequent unsettled $14.5bn tax bill in the EU ("political crap", Tim Cook has said), means that it might make sense to rinse Europe for a bit more cash.
And who better to press for funding than the hapless, masochistic folk of the UK, a potent mix of the most hated nation in the EU and incurable, obsessive Apple fanatics?
Buckle up, kids. You're going to drop a lot of those lovely wireless AirPods down drains and between rail tracks, and at £159 a pop (wow, that's nearly the same as the dollar price!) you'll probably need a weekend job to support the habit.
Maybe the Apple Store is hiring. µ
