We’ve got some bad news for you iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus lovers who’ve been intending to get the newly launched smartphones with the telco service provider – it’s declared that it’s closed taking pre-registrations of interest.
Yes, it’s been barely two days and the telco’s decided to halt taking registrations of interest due to an "overwhelming response" from the public. The last few pre-registrations of interest were apparently taken at 6pm yesterday evening.
StarHub announced on Wednesday (10 September) that it would be offering the Apple handsets and that interested parties can go on to its website to indicate wanting the units. But now, its website states nothing else besides the fact that the iPhone 6 is coming soon and “thank you for your interest. Pre-registration for the iPhone 6 has closed”.
On the other hand, SingTel is still taking registrations of interest for the devices, so if you’re still undecided on a telco and don’t really mind a contract with any, you can head over to its portal which doesn’t have a sign up cut-off time.
Alternatively, if you want to get on a contract, you can wait for 19 September when all three telcos – SingTel, StarHub, and M1 – will start offering the two new iPhone models. If you’re after a contract-less option, you can get the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from the Singapore Apple Online Store.
Prices for the iPhone 6, without any subsidies, will start from S$988 for the 16GB iPhone 6 model and S$1148 for the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus version.
