Updated PTA taxes for iPhone X, XR, XS and XS Max


iPhone is the most demanding smartphone. The iPhone has its own class and high technology. No matter how expensive it is, there is no doubt that using an iPhone in Pakistan has become difficult. The National Telecommunications Authority (PTA) has introduced various taxes on the use of smartphones. This is due to the depreciation of the rupee and the limited reserves of the State Bank. The government of Pakistan is currently planning to limit imports to stabilize the economy.

However, this is the right way for retailers who import smartphones in bulk. While this does not seem good for the average user who imports phones for personal use.
