Similar to last year, Apple had recently introduced three new iPhone models into the market. Last year’s iPhone X was their most expensive phone yet but it was proven to be a hot seller. Now it is reported that Apple is slowing down on production for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR due to lower than expected demand.Read the rest of this entry »
iOS 12.1 is available from Tuesday, October 30 for the iPhone (from iPhone 5S and later), the iPad (from iPad mini 2 and later) and even the 6th generation iPod touch. The update brings with a list of enhancements including support for Group FaceTime and 70 new emoji for the iPhone and iPad.
For the newer iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, iOS 12.1 will enable Depth Control in camera preview and dual SIM support via eSIM.
UPDATE: Digi PhoneFreedom 365 does not come with free device protection. More details here.
Digi is now making it easier for you to own the latest iPhone with no upfront payment. With the all-new Digi Phone Freedom 365 programme, you are able to get your hands on the iPhone XS from RM170/month, the iPhone XS Max from RM187/month and the iPhone XR from RM117/month.
This year Apple introduced three new devices and with a new moniker, “XR”. If you have been curious to know the meaning behind the “R” suffix in the iPhone XR, you don’t have to anymore – because Apple has provided with the reason why they’ve chosen the letter “R” for what is arguably the most important device in this year’s iPhone line up.
Some things, on the surface of it, do not go well together. Like Maggi and Milo, ice cream and fries, Apple and affordable. And like Maggi and Milo, my 24-hours with Apple’s “cheapest” new phone – the iPhone XR (pronounced “ten R” NOT “XR” by the way) – left me feeling, amazed, annoyed, happy, frustrated and above all else, confused.
Because there’s a lot to like about the iPhone XR and that’s saying a lot considering I don’t really like iPhones that much. In fact, I don’t really like a lot of things that Apple make (except for the iPad and the Apple Watch). I so want to like the iPhone XR, the phone that Apple hopes will get more people on board the iPhone bandwagon. But there are also several things that I feel Apple could have done better, better with very little effort, but they chose not to not because it is difficult but because…they’re Apple.
I’m going to get into detail about what I mean by this but for now, let’s get to know more about the iPhone XR.
Apple is finally releasing its iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR in Malaysia this coming Friday. If you’re thinking of getting one on a contract, we have compared the plans from Malaysia’s big four telcos – Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile, for your easy reference.
The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR are finally hitting Malaysia next week and you can pre-order your unit starting this Friday, 19 October. With price starting from RM3,599 for the iPhone XR and RM4,999 for the iPhone XS, you can pay less for the device via a telco where you can enjoy extra subsidies on a contract. Our four major telcos – Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile will be accepting pre-orders very soon.
When it comes to brand new iPhone launches, Malaysia is often left out from the list of first wave releases. Apple’s first wave countries usually include the US, UK, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore, and it will take approximately a month before the devices go on sale in Malaysia officially.
For the very first time, it appears that Apple has different plans for the iPhone XR. Almost a month since its introduction, the new colourful iPhone will be available for pre-order globally starting this Friday, 19 October and Malaysia is among the first wave countries to get it.
UPDATE: Apple Malaysia accepts pre-orders for the iPhone XS and XS Max starting 19 October. The iPhone XS is officially priced from RM4,999.
11street has been rather proactive when it comes to bringing the latest iPhone XS into Malaysia. Two weeks ago, they were the first e-commerce platform to offer pre-orders for imported units with price starting from RM4,999. For those who prefer to get official Apple Malaysia units, it appears that 11street is now accepting pre-orders and you could get it by end of next month.
When it comes to specs, Apple doesn’t officially disclose the amount of RAM and battery capacity for their mobile devices. Perhaps it is to keep things simple and usually, the amount of battery capacity doesn’t necessary represent real world battery life. iPhones in general are very power efficient considering they come with much smaller batteries than its Android rivals.
If you want to look up the nitty-gritty details of the new iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, we’ve finally gotten our answers from its TENAA certification listing in China. As you would expect with any large screen device, the iPhone XS Max has the most RAM and battery ever fitted on an iPhone.
