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.
Kanye West (or “Ye” as he likes to be addressed these days) is no stranger to the limelight but most of the time it is for all the weirdest reasons — the latest being his proposal for a plane he calls the “iPlane”. He revealed his wonderful avionic proposal during a visit to the White House last week with President Donald Trump as the main audience amongst discussions about access to job opportunities for former convicts.
The iPlane, while interesting, is not the most notable thing the Kanye West White House visit revealed. What’s even more interesting is the password Ye uses for his iPhone.
When it comes to brand new iPhone launches, Malaysia is often left out from the 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.
The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are officially coming to Malaysia very soon. If you’re looking for an official Malaysia unit with local warranty, Apple Malaysia is now accepting pre-orders for the iPhone XS on their online store at the end of this week.
Apple has just reached a new milestone for its mobile operating system. Barely four weeks since its public rollout, the new iOS 12 is now running on half of iOS devices worldwide. This include the iPhone, iPad and 6th generation iPod touch models.
The iPhone XS #ChargeGate issue has finally come to an end as Apple has released a fix with its minor iOS 12.01 software update. This also solves other issues related to WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity.
UPDATE: GoShop has reached out to us and they have confirmed that these iPhone XS units are from Hong Kong.
The iPhone XS and XS Max are coming very soon to Malaysia. While Apple has not announced its pricing and availability for our local market, 11street have started offering pre-orders for official Apple Malaysia units. Now another e-commerce platform, GoShop, has also jumped on the bandwagon and you could get an iPhone XS from as low as RM4,489.20 for the base 64GB model.
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.
When Apple announced the iPhone X last year, it was their most expensive iPhone yet. However, the high pricetag didn’t deter hundreds of people from queueing up overnight ahead of its official release.
Now we have the iPhone XS and Apple has raised the bar higher with a more premium iPhone XS Max that offers an even larger 6.5″ display and it comes with huge 512GB storage option. Will people still queue up for an even more expensive iPhone? Just check out the queue in front of the Apple Store in Singapore.
