Apple Singapore opening pre-orders for iPhone SE, iPad Pro 24 March

If you're not fast, you'll miss the first batch on 31 March

A quick look at Apple’s website shows that pre-orders are opening as soon as tomorrow 24 March for Apple’s newly announced iPhone SE and the 9.7in iPad Pro tablet.

That’s the good news. The bad news? If you can't click fast enough, you might not be the first to get the devices shipped out by 31 March, so prepare to get ordering tomorrow.

To help you decide which model to get, you can just surf on over to the Apple Singapore website to look at the colours, types and pricing. For the iPhone SE, you only have 16GB and 64GB to choose from but four colours: silver, grey, gold and that perennial favourite, rose gold. The 16GB model is going for S$658 and the 64GB model, S$828 and two more years of AppleCare will cost you S$138 but it’s an optional purchase.

As for the 9.7in iPad Pro, both the Wi-Fi and 3G versions will be available. For the Wi-Fi models, the 32GB is priced at S$898.00, the 128GB at S$1158.00 and the highest capacity, 128GB, will be S$1418.00. For the cellular models, the pricing is S$1098.00, S$1358.00 and S$1618.00 for the 32GB, 64GB and 128GB models respectively.

If you want to guarantee an iPhone SE or iPad Pro, you’d be best just pre-ordering online via the Apple webstore. Queuing on the launch date itself, while exciting for some, might see you missing out but as they’ll probably be back in stock sooner than later you can hold off unless you really need an iPhone.

The new phones with their 4in displays will probably cater to those who want smaller phones; a minority but still one that exists and also still hanging on to their older iPhone 5S models. If you're one of them don't forget to visit the Apple webpage tomorrow. Also check out 11 things you need to know about the iPhone SE.
