But now in Pakistan, many things are changing. With these other changes, things are also changing in Pakistan’s smartphone market thanks to Pakistan Telecommunication Authority. Now iPhone will be sold legally because it will be imported through official channels along with other smartphones. Now Pakistani consumers are paying more courtesy of the tighter tax policies, so they might as well get the full package.
