How many working days do you need to afford Apple’s latest flagship phone? Picodi.com publishes every year the iPhone Index that gather net wages and compare them to the published iPhone prices in each country. In this year’s index, Turkey was ranked the worst with 92.5 working days needed to buy an iPhone 13 while it only takes a working man 5.9 days to buy one in the US.
As far as Lebanon is concerned, and if we were to consider the minimum wage (LL675,000) which barely equals to $34, you probably would need 350-400 days to buy one, if we were to consider the iPhone 13 Pro priced at $1200. Back when the dollar was still worth 1500LL, we would have needed 3-4 days.
