New Delhi: Tech megagiant Apple has been accused of increasing product prices in Britain disproportionately by using Brexit as a pretext.

The prices of MacBooks (Apple laptops) have been increased in Britain by allegedly citing the controversial British referendum for causing a downfall in the value of the pound.

The 13-inch MacBook Air, which was first introduced in 2015, saw its price rise from £849 to £949.  The high-powered Mac Pro, saw its price rise from £2,499 to £2,999.

However, it would be wrong to rule out that Brexit decision has not affected the British pound. The value of the pound has almost slumped down to 20% against the US dollar. This means that British products will be sold cheaper abroad.

Not only Apple, companies like Microsoft and other tech organisations have been accused of increasing their price unfairly in reaction to the change in the market.
