Last year, the analysis department of the Picodi (a coupon-focused company) did a very interesting study that counted how many days a person had to work in order to buy an iPhone XS Max. This year, with the arrival of Apple's new smartphones, they repeated the dose.
Taking into account the average wage of several countries, they stipulated how many days it takes to purchase (price) a 64GB iPhone 11 Pro. Of course you may disagree and understand that another methodology may be more efficient in this analysis; Still, it is still interesting to see how the ranking was.
At the Brazil, as we know, the 64GB iPhone 11 Pro is coming out by R $ 6,299.10; According to the IBGE, the country's average income is at R $ 2,298 (R $ 2,077 net, in the worker's pocket). This way, a Brazilian has to work 63.7 days to buy the device This is, of course, setting aside any other expenses (a scenario that is virtually impossible to happen).
If we compare with the days needed to buy an iPhone in 2018, the scenario has improved a bit. It is worth noting, of course, that the iPhone 11 Pro arrived in Brazil costing less than the XS; The good news, however, is that the average salary in 2018 was R $ 1,268 (R $ 1,166 net) R $ 2,293 gross (R $ 2,073 net), slightly lower than the current figure released by the Picodi study.
In the base of the ranking we have Your, United States and Luxembourg, countries where the relationship between the price of the iPhone and the average wage is very balanced. According to the study, a worker in Switzerland needs only 4.8 days to buy the iPhone; in the US, days rise to 5.8; j in Luxembourg, 6.7 days.
Besides Brazil, only three other countries in Latin America are in the ranking: Colombia (89.7 days), Mexico (54.2 days) and Chile (40.2 days).
To work, guys! ?

According to the reader Thiago Rabelo We were told that the 2018 average wage calculation was wrong, Picodi had taken into account the average household income and the information has already been corrected in their area. With that, we made the necessary adjustments above.
