[ORIGINAL STORY, 653PM]:
As you might have heard, Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be released in Malaysia on Friday, 7 November. In case you are still sceptical of the announcement made by the
Yellow Man DiGi, Maxis has also confirmed that it will be offering the new smartphones from Apple on the same day.
Additionally, the telco has also announced that customers are able to pre-purchase both devices on 31 October through its online store at store.maxis.com.my. Unfortunately, these are the only information that Maxis has conveyed to media today regarding the upcoming release of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Furthermore, Maxis didn’t widely publish the news through its website and social media channels at the time this article is published. For a telco that has been actively teasing the imminent release of the device into Malaysia, Maxis is surprisingly very quiet regarding the whole deal. [UPDATE, 850PM: Maxis has opened a dedicated website for users that are interested to purchase iPhone 6. Scroll down further for info]
Nevertheless, do remember to note down 31 October in your calendar as the pre-purchase day for iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus if you are planning to get them through Maxis. If you somehow couldn’t decide which one to purchase, check out our initial hands-on experience with them over here.
[UPDATE, 850PM]: Maxis has opened a website for users that interested to purchase iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus through the telco, as shown below:
While it might sounds like one of the telco’s usual Registration of Interest websites, the site did state that it requires details from users in order to determine their “readiness” to purchase the new smartphones from Apple through Maxis. Once the details are submitted, Maxis will apparently e-mail users back within the next 3 days to inform users of their readiness to purchase iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. How interesting.
[UPDATE, 22/10 404PM]:
Just like Celcom, Maxis will be releasing the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on 6 Nov which is one day earlier than what previously announced. The new date was confirmed through a post on the telco’s Facebook page.
