iPhone is the most demanding smartphone.iPhone has its own class and high-tech features. No matter, how costly it is and no doubt, it has become difficult to use iPhone in Pakistan. The National Telecom Authority (PTA) has imposed various taxes in using smartphones. This is happening due to the declining rupee and limited State Bank reserves. Presently, the government of Pakistan is planning to restrict imports in order to stabilize the economy.

However, this is the right way for retailers who import smartphones in bulk. Whereas, it does not seem good for an average user who import phones for their personal use.
