iPhone and iPad users should be getting a software update notification today as Apple is pushing its newer iOS 8.1.2. Weighing about 28MB in size, the latest update is quite a minor one as it addresses an issue where purchased ringtones from iTunes. It also includes tweaks and fixes for previous bugs as well.
The update is applicable for iPhones from iPhone 4S and above and iPads starting with iPad 2. If you haven’t gotten any notification yet, you can check manually at Settings> General > Software Update.
So you’ve gotten an iPhone or an iPad and you probably regretted buying a 16GB version instead of the larger storage model. If you’re feeling stuck for extra space or have the need to transfer files quickly via USB, SanDisk has introduced its new iXpand Flash drive that comes with both full sized USB and lightning connector.
This works like the Ultra Dual USB drive for Android devices that support USB (OTG) On the Go.
Apple’s iMessage allows you to send SMS between iPhone for free as it gets sent across the internet instead of the usual telco mobile network. For those migrating from iPhones to other devices such as Android or Windows Phone, iMessage can be an issue as users have reported not receiving SMS sent from iPhone users. The issue of course is that Apple still believes that you’re using an iOS device and those messages are still trying to get through via iMessage instead of being sent as an SMS.
The straight forward solution is to disable iMessage before making the switch and Google has also mentioned this in their guide for iPhone users migrating to Android. But what if you’ve sold off your iPhone and you’ve forgotten to turn it off? There are several remedies like changing your Apple ID password or call up their customer care to disable it for you.
Now there’s an easier way to do it if you no longer have access to your old iPhone. Apple has released a web page where you can disable iMessage with a simple SMS verification. So if you’ve changed sim cards to a non-iPhone device, you can disable iMessage and start receiving all SMS instantly.
To disable iMessage, head over to their Deregister iMessage page.

Where other operators are getting customers to come to them for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Maxis did something completely different and sent out an army of its staff to personally deliver the newly launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to customers right at the stroke of midnight.
200 eager customers at various locations in Klang Valley, Genting Highlands, Kuantan and even Kuching were among the first owners of the official iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus when they had their order personally delivered to them by Maxis employees. Maxis is the first telco in the country where its employees are personally delivering brand new iPhones at midnight.
One special customer was Rastam Hadi Samsudin, who received his special Maxis Midnight Express delivery from Maxis CEO, Morten Lundal. Rastam was one of the earliest Maxis customers to pre-buy the new iPhone when it was made available in late October, a week before the official iPhone launch in Malaysia. His brand-new iPhone 6 Plus was delivered to him at TGV, Sunway Pyramid, just before he caught a midnight movie at the cinema.
In addition to the delivery, Morten also announced that everyone in the cinema hall with Rastam will receive free movie passes courtesy of TGV Cinemas because they were part of the Maxis Midnight Express deliver service experience.
Other customers who also pre-ordered their devices via the Maxis Online Store were able to self-collect at six Maxis Centres nationwide, namely KLCC, Johor Bahru, Penang, Kuantan, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching, between midnight and 4.00 am today. The devices will be then available for walk-in customers at all Maxis Centres and Maxis Exclusive Partners (MEPs) across the country at normal operating hours.
Take note that it will be available at SenQ One Utama, SenQ Cheras Leisure Mall and SenQ IOI Mall at 10:30AM tomorrow morning. It will also be available across SenHeng branches nationwide. In terms of pricing, the iPhone 6 will be sold outright from RM2,399 while the iPhone 6 Plus price starts from RM2,749. You can refer to the full iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Malaysian pricing post.
As usual, SenQ will be offering additional 1 year warranty for OnePlus card members as well as Easy Payment Plans with 0% Interest via Credit Card. There will be trade-in promotions as well but from their past Galaxy Note 4 trade-in promo, the value won’t be as high as you would hope for.
