New PTA Taxes on iPhone 13 Series (Updated March 2023)
The national telecom regulator PTA has raised taxes on the iPhone 13 series again. iPhone is without a doubt one of the most popular smartphones in the world. This is because of the elegance and the brand name associated with it. However, in countries like Pakistan where inflation is on the rise, it has become difficult to purchase an iPhone due to its exorbitant price. Two factors are responsible for the price increase. The first reason is the falling value of the rupee against the US dollar. The second reason is that new PTA taxes are the second contributing factor to the price increase. So let’s take a look at the updated PTA loads on the iPhone 13 series.

In recent months, PTA taxes on imported mobile phones have risen dramatically. This can be attributed to the fall of the rupee and the low reserves of the state bank. To stabilize the economy, the government currently wants to restrict imports. This is a step in the right direction for companies that import phones in bulk, but we don’t believe it’s acceptable for the average consumer who imports phones for personal use.
