While the official announcement states that Apple’s latest iPhones, the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, will be available in Malaysia from November 1, its Malaysian website has stated that they will be available to purchase on October 31.
As pointed out by reader @fuad_fadz, Apple’s official Malaysian website states that both the new iPhones will be available to order at its online store, as well as for physical purchase at official Apple Resellers from October 31, which is 24 hours earlier than the official date stated last night. Unfortunately, pricing details for both devices remain a mystery.
In contrast, the other countries sharing the November 1 release dates as Malaysia , India and Saudi Arabia, both lists varying availability dates, with India having the same official November 1 release date, and Saudi Arabia having a slightly later release date listed for November 3.
Looks like the midnight queues will start a day early, then.
