Turns out Australia's the 11th-cheapest place to buy an iPhone.

Marketing firm WebpageFX analysed the cost for a 16GB iPhone 6 purchased outright in markets around the world, using pricing and the US dollar exchange rate as of July 2015. It also calculated what percentage of the median annual household income would be needed to buy the phone.
