As GST kicks in today in Malaysia, owning the latest gadget with a shiny Apple logo will cost you even more. This comes right after its recent price hike on the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 5S.

Now the iPhone 6 is priced from RM2,702 for 16GB, which is RM303 more since its launch in Malaysia last last year. Meanwhile the phablet sized iPhone 6 Plus now costs more than RM3,000 at RM3,126. This is an increase of RM377. The same 6% increase also applies on their iPads in Malaysia but it isn’t so much as it left unchanged during the price revision that happened a few weeks ago.

You can view the full list of the latest Post-GST iPhone and iPad pricing after the break.

Initially it was expected that Samsung would be pricing its latest Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge higher than its Apple counterparts. With the latest price revision, Apple would continue to command a more “premium” price tag as Samsung is expected to price the Galaxy S6 (32GB) at RM2,599 while its Galaxy S6 edge (32GB) at RM3,099, inclusive of GST.

Glad that I bought my iPhone 6 before the GST implementation. Phew! Apple is becoming more and more like its old self where everything is sold at a premium – pricing out their buyers, and GST is not helping either.

The more expensive, the more people who will want to buy, doesn't matter if it's worth the money spent. When fewer people can afford it, more people will want to be seen owning it.

Apple is so greedy…
Why can't it be like Oppo – paying GST for ûs?
