When it comes to iPhone-only apps, FaceTime is a fan favorite. However, so far, most iPhone users in Pakistan have been deprived of the privilege. For those who do not know, sellers sold locked models of FaceTime and unlocked models of FaceTime, and the latter cost more because it had to be imported. Thus, most iPhone users in Pakistan do not have FaceTime.
Now that things are changing in Pakistan’s smartphone market thanks to PTA, along with other smartphones, iPhones will be imported through official channels and sold legally. Since consumers in Pakistan will be paying more courtesy of stricter tax policies, they can also get the full package.
