Apple has restored its Russian online store after pulling it down last week due to “extreme” ruble fluctuations. Though the store is now back online, it’s returned with higher prices. iPhone prices have been increased by 35 percent — a 16GB iPhone 6 now costs 53,990 rubles ($956), up from the recent price of 39,990 rubles. As noted by Bloomberg, the iPhone’s price in Russia has increased 69 percent in less than a month.
