iPhone is a popular smartphone brand all over the world. The users like it because of its elegant designs, amazing camera, better performance, and its brand image. All of this comes in a hefty price range. Recently, iPhone prices have risen enormously which has made the latest models too pricey for everyone. Therefore, the buyers choose to buy older models. iPhone XR is a preferable choice for buyers due to its features. But know about new PTA Taxes on iPhone XR before making your purchase.


New PTA taxes on iPhone XR

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) is a public organization that regularises the telecommunication system in Pakistan. To enable telecommunication services on your smartphone, every phone has to be registered with PTA by paying a certain amount of tax.

Currently, we are living in an era of iPhone 14 which makes iPhone XR 4 generations old. Yet the prices are too high due to the depreciation value of PKR against USD. To top the priciness, the new PTA taxes on iPhone XR may lead you to reconsider your choice.

The buyers are not at all happy about these PTA taxes because they have made smartphones overpriced. First, they have to pay a heavy amount to pay the price of the phone because of the depreciated value of PKR. As the Pakistani currency has devalued, the imported iPhones cost more than twice in Pakistan.

Then another bomb falls with every increase in the name of a collection of PTA taxes which is increasing day by day. The authorities are collecting heavy taxes on smartphones as old as 4-5 years old which is upsetting for the public. Nowadays when smartphone is a need of all, these new PTA taxes on iPhone XR have made such an older phone out of people’s budget. To avoid paying these taxes, many buyers choose to keep their phones unverified with PTA.

All new buyers can also use the services of PTA approval in instalments with BAnk ALfalah’s Alfa Mall. To know more about PTA taxes on other smartphones, you can use the PTA tax calculator.
