Maxis and its prepaid brand, Hotlink, have finally introduced carrier billing which lets you buy apps, subscribe to Apple Music and iCloud storage without having to use a payment card. Similar to Celcom, U Mobile and Digi, you can charge your purchases to your postpaid bill or by deducting your existing prepaid credit.
Apart from Digi, both Celcom and U Mobile are also offering direct billing for purchases on the Apple App Store and services. This allows you to pay for apps, music, movies and even iCloud storage using your prepaid credit or have it charged directly to your postpaid bill.
Digi is now giving you another option to pay for your Apple iOS apps and services. If you don’t fancy using your credit and debit card, you can now pay via Digi’s carrier billing.

Interestingly Steve Jobs didn’t believe in the subscription model and this is a big shift from its current approach of selling songs ala carte by track or album. Back in 2003, the Apple co-founder once said that subscription music services were going to fail and people won’t buy music as a subscription. “When they want music, they bought 45s, LPs, cassettes, 8-tracks, CDs and then they are going to buy downloads”, he said in an interview.
