It’s been less than 48 hours since Tim Cook showed off Apple’s latest tech tools to the world and already, two of the three major telcos in Singapore, SingTel and StarHub, have officially opened up registration of interest pages on their respective websites for the iPhone 6 and/or the iPhone 6 Plus.
Now, you can let your telco service provider (or if you intend to switch, your future telco service provider) know that you want the units on 19 September, but you’ve got to do it quick – the first to register will be the first to get it.
SingTel will be offering both the 4.7in iPhone 6 and the 5.5in iPhone 6 Plus from 19 September on its six new and improved Combo mobile plans (if you recall, it most recently axed its Flexi mobile plans and replaced them with these).
But what it didn’t disclose were the various pricings of the new iPhones with these contracts. We’re watching the website like a hawk, and will update you with it as soon as SingTel releases the breakdown.
Plenty of options to choose from
StarHub’s put out a note in addition to its registration of interest that although the registration is needed for all bookings, it doesn’t guarantee a successful booking, which are handled on a “first come first serve basis, while stocks last, and subject to your mobile service sign-up or renewal eligibility”.
As for M1, it’s yet to start the registration process, but it’s announced that the units will go on sale on 19 September from 8am.
But if you’re not after the units with a mobile plan, you can choose to purchase the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from the Singapore Apple Online Store. Pre-orders start from 12 September, and just like all three telcos, you can buy it from 19 September.
However, they will cost you quite a bit if you’re going to get one without a mobile plan – prices start from S$988 for the 16GB iPhone 6, so consider your options wisely.
