Brexit price rise hits software, cloud and devices – here are the tech companies charging more

The fall in sterling is pushing tech giants to raise prices - some by more than 20%.

By Ellie Burns

The pound has plunged around 18% against the dollar since the historic Brexit vote, earning sterling the accolade of worst performing major currency of 2016.

Tech giants such as Microsoft, Cisco and EMC were vocal in their support for the Remain campaign, warning that a vote to leave the Union would result in higher prices, less UK investment and an exodus of talent and business.

As warned by the tech majors, some prices have increased since Brexit – here CBR gives you the rundown of those hiking prices.



Apple has increased the cost of some of its UK products by as much as 20%, with themacbook pro price for a Mac Pro rising from £2,499 to £2,999. With prices remaining the same in the US, the price rise has again been blamed on the falling pound with the Mac Mini now retailing at £479, compared to the previous £399.

The rise in prices was made quietly, with the hike almost hidden by the excitement surrounding the MacBook Pro launch.
