PTA taxes on iPhones have been a matter of concern for many. For some iPhone models, the taxes are nearly half of their market price while for others the taxes are even higher than their market price. Last time, we brought you the iPhone 14 PTA taxes (for all models). Today, we are going to show you the PTA tax on iPhone 13 Pro Max & others.
