As custom duty taxes on all import products are increased, PTA (Pakistan Telecommunication Authority) also raises taxes on the import of all smartphones. As iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus taxes was announced, new taxes are now applied to these models of iPhone.

|Apple iPhone 7||Rs. 98,000/-||Rs. 95,300/-|
|Apple iPhone 7 Plus||Rs. 98,000/-||Rs. 95,300/-|
As you can see the TAX rates in the above table of these models of iPhone. These taxes are higher than the total price of the mobile phone. So this is very bad news for thousands of lovers of these models.
As this is a very high amount of tax so this tax number exceeds the purchasing capacity of thousands of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus users in Pakistan. We highly request to PTA that take action and reduce the Tax on these models. Because small iPhone users can’t afford this tax amount.
As you know that the models of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are the best models of the time. Even millions of iPhone users all over the world still use these models. These models were launched with High-resolution cameras, very attractive designs, famous Colors, and super fast processor speed of that time.
