Content Tax Makes German iPhones, iPads (a Little) More Expensive

Apple has raised prices on its iPhones by 5 euros ($5.43) and its iPads by 7 euros ($7.60) because of a new tax designed to distribute funds to German content-makers. Apple confirmed the price hike to the Associated Press today, and MacRumors flagged the increase a couple of days ago. – Peter Kafka, Re/code
