Ufone has become the first career in Pakistan to announce that it will be in partnership with Apple to bring the latest version of Apple’s iPhone which are iPhone 6 and 6S Plus, officially to its Pakistani customers next month
Apple’s newest smartphones have been out in the wild since a month and as expected they are breaking their sales records as millions of iPhones were pre-ordered, Now it’s time for Pakistani fans of iPhone to get latest iPhone 6S or 6S Plus.
We don’t have any news on the pricing yet, but you can expect the base 16 GB model of the iPhone 6S to cost upwards of PKR 80,000 while the 6S Plus will cost at least 10K more than that. Also, since this phone is being sold by a career, the phones will probably be career-locked and will come with some complimentary data, minutes or SMS.
There is no official presence of Apple in Pakistan, and it doesn’t have an official partnership with retailers for selling iPhones that’s why most of the iPhone sold in Pakistan are imported from other countries; causing import and tax charges.
This drastically increases the price and as a result, most people rely on careers to officially launch the new iPhones and it’s good to see that Ufone has already announced its plan for it. Unlike last time, when it took all the careers until December to launch the iPhone 6, Ufone is now looking to under-cut other careers by offering the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus as soon as mid of November.
