iPhone 11 Pro Max
“There’s no accounting for the tastes” and Apple seems to have taken the adage so seriously that its iPhone 11 Pro Max model costs ‘too much’ for some phone users but ‘okay’ for others.
Apple announced the starting price of iPhone 11 Pro Max to be $1,099 and the phone comes with 6.5-inch Super Retina XDR screen.
For Pakistani users, the approximate price of iPhone 11 Pro Max after PTA approval is as under:
- Price for 64 GB: Rs 2,88,000 PKR.

“iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are the most powerful and advanced smartphones we have ever made. They are packed with sophisticated technology that pros can count on to get their work done, and for anyone who wants the very best device made, even if they are not a pro,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing at the keynote.
The core reason behind such a price for cash-strapped Pakistanis is due to devaluation of Pakistani currency against the US Dollar as well as the tax imposed by the Federal Board of Revenue. Though consultations are underway to slash the tax by a considerable amount, a decision is to be made regarding the proposal.
