Apple to Officially Launch iPhone in Pakistan in 2014

- Pakistani

Apple is all set to launch iPhone in Pakistan at the end of this year (2014).  An inaugural ceremony is being planned during late November or in December this year. Apple has contracted with all cellular operators for the procurement of  iPhones in Pakistan.

Currently, iPhone is not available on contract basis i.e. phones with yearly agreements with subsidized rates .

All operators have partnered with Apple to make sure that their networks are officially configured to use iPhones. Various Apple services that require partner networks to work will be available in Pakistan for iPhone users.

Iphone is much strong brand and has more power of customer retention. Apple would be having a good revenue stream from Pakistan through all telecom companies, Mobilink, Zong, Warid, Telenor and Ufone.

Currently iphone is being imported through grey channels. iPhone users are forced to buy iphone on premium prices.

Such import channels only push iPhone users to pay thousands of rupees extra to buy Apple’s smart phones in Pakistan.

With this development, people will be able to buy iPhones with official price tags and with warranties right away when they are launched internationally.

Cellular operators have plans to acquire iPhones at the time of the launch. It is being planned that, along with other distribution networks, cellular operators will be selling devices to their customers.

We will inform you about more details on this development in coming few weeks.
