Maxis has removed the Apple iPhone from its Zerolution upgrade programme. To be fair, Zerolution for the iPhone was never meant to be a permanent thing; having already been cancelled once before.
The notice on the iPhone Zerolution page clearly states:
“The Zerolution for iPhone promotional offer has ended. However, customers who have Zerolution for iPhone with Annual Upgrade may still upgrade their iPhone after 12 monthly installments.
New customers can opt for normal contracts instead. Please visit your
nearest Maxis Centre to find out more.”
On the surface, this looks like Maxis simply ending the iPhone Zerolution promotion as it said it would. The programme had originally been cancelled with the iPhone 6s not receiving an upgrade to the iPhone 7. This changed for some reason, when Maxis backtracking on the decision and bringing the programme back for “a limited time promotion”.
We’re also still unclear on what upgrade path remains for current iPhone users should they continue with their Zerolution payments. We’ve reached out to Maxis for more information and will update this post when we hear back from the company.
