iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C hopefuls can now register their interest to purchase the device with Maxis. The operator follows DiGi and Celcom in announcing that it will also make the iPhone 5S/5C available presumably on October 31 as announced by Apple.
Expect Maxis, Celcom and DiGi to announce pricing, plans and pre-order details anytime after the Hari Raya Haji holidays. For now, Maxis is the only operator that will be able to take advantage of iPhone’s LTE connectivity as it is the only operator that currently offers LTE data together with its voice plans. Celcom and DiGi currently offer data-only LTE plans.
If contract purchase is not your thing, expect retail stores line SenHeng to make the iPhone duo available soon after the October 31 launch if not on launch day itself. The Malaysian Apple Online store have also started advertising the new iPhones in anticipation of the local launch so you will be able to order direct from them as well.
