If the clues from Maxis isn’t enough to convince you, check out what retailer SenQ has posted on their Facebook page. From the image above, it is pretty clear that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus would be available in Malaysia soon. Like previous iPhone releases, you should be able to get one outright without contract from SenQ.
With Apple usually releasing new iPhone on a Friday, it could be on sale as early as next Friday or the Friday after that. So far there’s no indication of its 3rd wave of countries but those in China can start pre-booking theirs on the 10th October and it will be released a week later on the 17th October. If you’re thinking of buying an imported unit, probably it is best to wait for the official sets that’s supported by local Apple warranty.
Coincidentally the Galaxy Note 4 would be launched in Malaysia very soon. Let’s see which device will be released first.
Thanks @JaronYap for the tip!

If you’re eyeing for the latest 5.5″ iPhone 6 Plus, you can get it at much at a lower price than what was ridiculously offered before. On Lazada Malaysia, we found one that’s listed at RM3,499 for the 64GB Space Grey version and you can get additional RM50 off with the #MyCyberSale promo. Also available is the larger 128GB version in Space Grey that’s listed at RM4,652.
If you prefer something smaller, the iPhone 6 16GB is offered at RM2,355, and that’s before the RM50 discount is applied.
Take note that these are imported units which lacks official Apple warranty. Some of the imported iPhones listed have specifically mentioned that it comes with no warranty. If being the first to own these new iPhone models matter to you, you can check out Lazada’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus listing.
UPDATE: More clues point to Apple, but we are not too sure about the 10th October date. Head after the break for the update.
UPDATE 2: Maxis #NextBigThing teaser continues. The upcoming device will be available for online orders.
UPDATE 3: iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be officially available in Malaysia on 7th November.
Tipster Dominic has pointed out that the jam next to the toaster is showing an Apple jam while the reflection of it with a knife resembles the number 10. Coincidentally the next wave for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is reported to be happening on 10th October with China joining the list of official available countries.

Apple’s Bendgate issue has been a hot topic this week as the iPhone 6 Plus claims to be easily deformed when placed in a pocket. Apple is dismissing the whole issue as nothing but an over-exaggeration and they reported to have only received 9 complaints so far.
To put some credible light into the matter, Consumer Reports has conducted a more scientific test using an Instron compression test machine. For the experiment, they have compared the iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, HTC One M8, LG G3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The machine will apply 10 pounds (about 4.53kg) of pressure for 30 seconds, and then repeat it with additional pressure until the phone gets deformed.
Before this, the same guy from UnboxTherapy has shown that anything else is stronger than the iPhone 6 Plus based on his physical bend test. The actual test results from Consumer Report is surprisingly different. Watch the video after the break.
Enough of bending. Now it’s time to find out if the iPhone 6 Plus blends. Blendtec’s Tom Dickson has gotten himself the latest phablet from Apple and it is time to give it its signature Will it Blend treatment.

UPDATE: Lazada drops the listed price for its iPhone 6 16GB to RM2,599, which means it is offered at RM2,399 after RM200 discount.
UPDATE 2: iPhone 6 64GB price gets slashed to RM2,999. Now only RM2,799 after RM200 discount.
The 4.7″ iPhone 6 isn’t officially launched in Malaysia yet but if you can’t wait, Lazada is offering a special offer where you can purchase one from as low as RM2,598 with its special “LAZADAiPhone6″ promo code. It is higher than the usual official pricing but it is lower than the crazy mark up prices offered by some scalpers.

iPhone 6 16GB (Gold, Silver, Grey) –
iPhone 6 64GB (Gold, Silver, Grey) –
Take note that these are grey-imported units where the warranty will be covered from its direct dealer DialogHub. To apply the RM200 discount, make sure you enter “LAZADAiPhone6″ to your right on the payment page, after checking out.

Apple has been getting a lot of attention this week thanks to its iPhone 6 Plus bendgate, where its latest foray into the phablet category is marred by bending issues. While its competitors are throwing pot shots over the bending issue, Apple has officially broke its silence and claims that the issue was blown out of proportion.
According to them, they have only received 9 official complaints so far, which is extremely rare considering they have sold over 10 million units last weekend.
Lewis from Unbox Therapy has made another follow up video and this time he compared the smaller iPhone 6, a HTC One M8, Moto X, Lumia 1020 and finally the previous model, the iPhone 5S. The iPhone 6 (6.9mm) is actually thinner than the iPhone 6 Plus (7.1mm) but it appears to be less prone to bending. There’s a noticeable dent but it is reported to be a minor one, which is a better result than the deformed iPhone 6 Plus.

UPDATE: Apple has just released iOS 8.0.2 to fix the problem affecting iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users. To update, go to Settings > General > Software Updates.
Shortly after the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple has rolled out a new iOS 8.0.1 software update that was supposed to iron out some minor kinks. Unfortunately the little update was reported to be creating more problems, affecting its cellular service and TouchID Fingerprint scanner. It seems that it only affects iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that were updated to iOS 8.0.1.
Apple has responded that a fix is on its way in yet another update (iOS 8.0.2) but it would take a couple of days to release it. So for those who are affected, you can restore your iPhone 6 to proper working order by downgrading to iOS 8.0. Head after the break for the official instructions.
If you are planning to get either the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus from a scalper, you might want to reconsider because the two devices has received SIRIM approval, which could be an indication that the device will be launched in Malaysia soon.
How soon, you ask? We don’t know, but what’s for almost certain is that it will be this year. Also, you can expect the device to be widely available via operators, the Apple Online Store and maybe even official retailers. But is the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus worth the wait? That’s a bendy debate.
