PTA tax iPhone 15

The iPhone 15 series, featuring significant advancements in technology and design might be yet another milestone reached for Apple Inc., but Pakistan Telecommunication Authority or PTA tax make it a tough buy in Pakistan.

The new range includes enhanced features such as a titanium body, USB-C port, an advanced operating system, and the powerful A17 Pro chip.

The iPhone 15 models, particularly noted for their 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED displays, offer high-quality visuals. The A17 Pro chip further ensures efficient performance, setting a high standard in the global smartphone market.


However, in Pakistan, these models carry a notably higher price tag compared to international markets. The premium pricing is further impacted by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) tax, applicable for registration of devices imported into the country.
