Safari kinda different now

It’s different but if you don’t like it you can set it up where it works just like it did pre iOS 15. Tap the Aa in the room bar for more options.

A local supplier announced their iPhone 13 / 13 Pro pricing.
The conversion rate is more than 10 times the US retail prices.

As if you didn’t know the calculation for averaging costs when importing something to sell is to multiply the US retail price by 10 and then ad your mark up.

i would understand the complaints if getting USD wasn't so difficult
but all businesses have to pick and choose what to import now for maximum profit

i don't even import high end phones anymore because its not worth it

better i spend my limited US on 20 cheap phone than one $1500 USD phone

Is that the case with tax free products?
Anybody with a credit card and a skybox could just order their own phone and save thousands instead of buying locally.

It’s to get it at hand versus waiting for delivery and some Persons credit cards don’t Allow them US currency

that have a few years to go still. my last mbp lasted 5 years, and wifey using it all now. reduced battery life, but that's expected

I usually expect 4-5 years of service before upgrading.

a far cry from my last Dells/HPs and Toshibas that tanked after 18-36months.

They don't deliver to freight forwarders, ship it to someone you know and let them send it to your SB company.

Same. Shipped many apple items to Aeropost with no problems. Thanks for the tip with the store app, feels more user friendly than the website.
