The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are now available in selected first wave countries. If you prefer to get an official Apple Malaysia unit, it looks like you won’t have too long for the local release. Three new Apple devices have just gotten the green light from SIRIM.
Following the announcement of the new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, Apple has reduced its pricing for its older iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 models in Malaysia. You can now get the base iPhone 7 with 32GB of storage for only RM2,199. That’s RM1,000 lower than its original launch price back in 2016.
If you currently own a MacBook (12″ Retina) or a MacBook Pro and facing issues when typing, you might be able to get your keyboard fixed for free in Malaysia. Apple has announced a Keyboard Service Program for selected models and you could get it entirely replaced even if it’s out of warranty and no longer covered by AppleCare.
When you buy an Apple product, you always expect top notch customer service from its authorised service providers. I personally had issues with my old iPhone 5 and 1st gen Apple Watch, which they have replaced for free despite being out of warranty.
Sometimes these issues are unavoidable but what matters most is the way they solve your problem. To enhance its customer service experience, Apple has released its Apple Support app for Malaysia. This acts as a one-stop app for personalised assistance.
Malaysia’s Goods and Services Tax (GST) is zero-rated starting from today. Consumers can expect to pay lower prices without the previous 6% tax and that includes devices as well as telco services.
Apple has just updated their current iPhone pricing and you can read on for the full price list with 0% GST.
Not too long ago, one of our original 1st gen Apple Watch had its screen pop out like the picture above. It was out of warranty but we managed to get it replaced for free. Apparently, Apple had quietly extended the warranty for up to 3 years to address issues of swelling batteries on their first generation product.
Now it appears that Apple is doing something similar for its newer Apple Watch Series 2 that has water resistance and built-in GPS.
The Apple Watch is undoubtedly the best selling smart watch of all time. In its 3rd generation, the Apple Watch retains the same design and if you’re still on the first gen Apple Watch, there’s very little reason to upgrade unless you’re into swimming and require better water resistance.
If your good old Apple Watch from 2015 is having its screen popped up as shown above, don’t attempt to fix it yourself. It happened to our own unit and we just managed to get the whole watch replaced for free.
Apple wants to make its music service more accessible to students worldwide. Instead of paying full price, this new student membership lets you enjoy the same perks at up to 50% off.
This student benefit is now available in almost all countries where Apple Music is available and this includes Israel, Malaysia, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal and Taiwan. It’s open to all students studying undergraduate or post-graduate courses at a qualifying institute.
