ISLAMABAD: Since iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are going to be officially available in Pakistan starting late next week, the official prices Apple’s flagship duo have also been released for Pakistan.
Apple has partnered with almost all local telecom operators to launch its iPhones in Pakistan and currently pre-orders are being accepted while shipping will start from Nov 13th, 2015.
Though, prices of Apple devices in Pakistan are little higher than the open market, but advantage of phones sold by telecom operators is that they will come with official warranties of one year.
These officially sold iPhones will also be factory unlocked and therefor could be used on any local network.
The prices for the iPhone 6S and the 6S Plus are going to be as following:
16GB : Rs 93,724
64GB : Rs 107,524
128 GB : Rs 121,324
iPhone 6S Plus:
16GB : Rs 107,524
64GB : Rs 121,324
128 GB : Rs 135,124
Just to give you an idea, the price of the cheapest iPhone 6S is $650 in the US which converts to about 68.5k at the current exchange rate of $1 to Rs 105.
Now add some taxes (both in Pakistan and US) and this phone should ideally cost around Rs. 80K — which will be officially sold for 93.5K.
Not to mention, iPhones are available for cheaper in the open market with the iPhone 6S going for about 77k for the 16GB model and 97k for the iPhone 6S Plus 16GB model. These prices are true for both open market and online retail outlets that sell iPhones in Pakistan.
Just in case if you are wondering, both iPhone 6S and 6S Plus come in the same shell as last year’s iPhones but have deep changes as far as the internals go. Processor, GPU, RAM and cameras have been improved in both version of the iPhone.
