Least affordable: Nigeria
A Nigerian citizen needs to spend 69.12% of their yearly salary to purchase the base model iPhone 14 128GB.
Despite a comparable median salary to India, iPhone 14 deals starts at a whopping $1,571.57, making Nigeria the least affordable and 3rd most expensive country in the world. The high cost is mainly due to costly import fees and various logistic challenges in the West African country.
Most affordable: Luxembourg

Priced at $985.22, this makes Luxembourg the 16th least expensive country for an iPhone 14 - just behind the UK in 15th place at $976.48.
