If you plan on traveling abroad, make sure to protect your iPhone. Replacing your device could prove quite costly outside of the United States, according to a report by Deutsche Bank.

The study, helmed by strategist Jim Reid, compared the price of purchasing an Apple iPhone 6 and 6S — the 4.7-inch screen, 16GB models — in 27 different countries.

"Don't lose your phone while away in Brazil, India, Sweden, Denmark or Italy as a new iPhone is most expensive there," Reid's team wrote in the research note.

Brazil holds the highest price tag in the report for both iPhone models. The iPhone 6 will set a buyer back about $931, while the 6S model costs about $1,164.

In the U.S. consumers pay around $598 for the Model 6 and $707 for the iPhone 6S. Prices for the smartphones in Japan, Hong Kong and South Africa are also on the lower end.

Reid's report said his team "tried to ensure that all taxes and surcharges are included" so the figures are comparable, but there could still be some variation depending on discounts and local fees.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
