How much does an average Pakistani need to work to buy the latest iPhone XS? Shocking data puts Pakistan on number 2 spot
An interesting data shows that an average Pakistani needs to invest 88.6 days in his profession to buy latest iPhone XS 64 GB, falling at the second last spot in the table devised in terms of work days needed for citizens from across the globe.
Interestingly, despite having to work for so many days to buy the Apple rollout, there is no official store of the US tech giant in Pakistan and only third-party resellers offer the product; an increased price up to 20 or 30 per cent is charged from an average Pakistani due to non-availability of the official store.
Interestingly, the iPhones are designed in California, however, its citizens are not at liberty when it comes to buying the product. An average American needs the earnings from 8.4 days to buy the phone.
On the other end, Swiss people top the chart as they only need 5.1 days' earning to clinch the iPhone model, succeeded by citizens of Luxembourg with earnings of 6.9 days to bag the gadget.
