Looking for affordable deals on Apple products? Authorised reseller, Machines, is organising a clearance sale this weekend where you can get discounts on stock clearance and ex-demo units. This time, it’s happening at Petaling Jaya.
Looking for a good deal on iPhone, iPad, MacBooks and iMacs? The Machines Warehouse Clearance is back again and this time it is happening at Level 4, Avenue K in Kuala Lumpur.
Apple products are expensive to buy brand new. If you’ve always wanted a shiny Apple product, Machines is organising a warehouse clearance sales with lowered prices for iPod, iPhone, iPad, MacBook, Apple Watch and other accessories.
Apple‘s iPad Pro has been a huge success if we’re looking at sales figures, but it is also incredibly…well, huge. At 12.9 inches, it can be a little tricky to hold and use in one hand which may have turned some off it.
Still, that didn’t stop it from outselling Microsoft’s entire Surface lineup in Q4 of 2015. If the only thing stopping you from picking one up yourself is the size, we have good news for you because it looks like Apple has plans to launch a 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

Shortly after the announcement of the latest iPhone 6s, iPad Pro and iPad mini 4, the Malaysian Apple Online Store has made some price revisions on its product line up. With no surprises, most of the current iPhone and iPad models are getting a price increase, no thanks to our weakening currency exchange rate.
The iPhone 6 Plus costs as much as RM149 extra while the iPad gets price hike as much as RM459.
Want Apple products at lower prices? Machines is doing another warehouse clearance sales at Citta Mall, where you can buy refurbished or demo iPods, iPads, iPhones and Macs for less. A demo iPad mini is going for as low as RM593 while a refurbished iPhone 6 is offered at RM2,432. If you’re looking for a computer, an iMac 20″ is going for just RM999 while a MacBook Pro 13 can be yours from RM1,440 (depending on year of model).
On top of that, there are special offers as well for selected accessories with iPhone cases going for RM10 each and you can nab 2x iPad Air folio cases at RM20. For the fitness buffs, Machines is offering 2 units of Jawbone UP24 at RM399.
Machines members can get an early preview this Thursday 30th July from 10AM to 7PM, while the rest of the public can enter starting this Friday 31st July until 2nd August, also from 10AM to 7PM. Take note that they are only accepting Cash and Credit card, while debit cards are strangely not accepted during sale. For those who are not familiar, Citta Mall is located at Ara Damansara along the highway leading to Subang Airport.

Apple has always been reluctant of providing any expandable memory slots for its iPhone and iPad. If you’re stuck with just 16GB of storage, SanDisk’s iXpand flash drive could be the solution that you’ve been looking for and it is finally here in Malaysia.
This is basically a thumbdrive with a full sized USB for your computer and it also comes with a pop-up lightning connector that plugs into your iPhone or iPad. This allows you to backup and transfer your photos and videos out easily.
A new iOS 8.3 update is now available for supported iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. Apart from the usual bug fixes and performance improvements, the latest update also delivers a new emoji keyboard with over 300 new characters. If you are seeing some weird blocky alien emojis from your friends, it is because they are using the new emojis that are visible to those on iOS 8.3 or OS X 10.10.3.
Depending on what device you have, it is about 280MB-375MB to download and we recommend you to do so using WiFi. If you haven’t gotten any notifications yet, you can check under Settings > General > Software Update.
Now the iPhone 6 is priced from RM2,702 for 16GB, which is RM303 more since its launch in Malaysia last last year. Meanwhile the phablet sized iPhone 6 Plus now costs more than RM3,000 at RM3,126. This is an increase of RM377. The same 6% increase also applies on their iPads in Malaysia but it isn’t so much as it left unchanged during the price revision that happened a few weeks ago.
