  • Revenue Generation: The government uses taxes as a source of revenue to fund various public services and development projects. Taxing imported iPhones contributes to the national treasury.

  • Consumer Protection: The PTA imposes taxes to discourage the import of unauthorized or counterfeit iPhones, which may not meet quality and safety standards. This helps protect consumers from substandard devices.
  • Control of Mobile Devices: By imposing taxes on imported smartphones, including iPhones, the government aims to regulate the influx of devices into the country. This can help prevent a saturation of the market and ensure a balance between demand and supply.

We hope the above information comes in handy when buying your next iPhone. If you are unsure about your PTA approved status, do a quick PTA IMEI Check on your phone.
