The sale of smartphones via grey market channels continues unabated in the country. It is estimated that over thousands of phones are illegally sold in various parts of the country year after year.
There are reports that the government intends to make phones sold via grey market inoperable. Plus these phones don’t come with value added services such as warranty, repairing, etc.
Should Apple iPhone fans be Worried?
For Apple iPhone fans, this represents a huge challenge. Apple Inc’s products continue to rule the hearts and minds of many Pakistanis. They are considered as a huge investment, and rightly so. iPhone owners need to know if their products will continue to run flawlessly as ever and with the peace of mind that genuine after sales services provide.
They need not worry anymore. Muller & Phipps will be bringing the latest iOS mobile devices (such as the iPhone X and iPhone 8) to Pakistan.
And what’s more, as an authorized distributor for Apple Inc products in Pakistan, they will also offer warranty claims, after sales services, and accessories for the Apple-phile.
Keeping in mind the starting price of the iPhone X ($1000 in the US), it is prudent for Apple fans to opt for products from authorized distributors and resellers in Pakistan.
