Apple doubled the cost of the MacBook Pro storage upgrade

Apple doubled the cost of the standard 13-inch upgrade for the MacBook Pro by $ 1,300. Compared to the previous $ 100 upgrade cost, American customers will have to pay $ 200 to switch from 8GB to 16GB.

Similar growth has been observed in other countries, for example, paying 250 euros instead of 125 euros in Germany and 200 pounds instead of 100 pounds in the UK.

Although the company sometimes adjusts upgrade costs to variable component costs, the reason for the current change is that the company introduced the 13-inch MacBook Pro less than a month ago and increased or not decreased with it. .

It is extremely rare for Apple to adjust its costs shortly after its release, indicating that the business costs that consumers have to pay have increased unexpectedly.
