When Apple announced that iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max will be making their way into Malaysia on 27 September which is just a week after their release in the US, we thought local telcos would be immediately announced their rollout plan for the new Apple devices. As it turned out, the telcos were rather mummed about it though with the exception of Digi.
Around late afternoon today, Digi has announced that customers will be able to pre-order iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Max from the telco starting from 20 September 2019 through its official website. The telco didn’t provide much info apart from the pre-order date but has confirmed that all three devices will be available through its PhoneFreedom 365 device ownership program.
For those who are not familiar with Digi PhoneFreedom 365, it is the telco’s signature 24-month 0% instalment scheme with no upfront payments needed. Under the program, customers can choose to upgrade their phone to the latest model without any upgrade charges and can be done on the 18th or 20th month of their instalment period depending on the classification of their phone.
At this moment, Digi has yet to disclose that exact tier class for each of these new Apple devices. We were informed by the telco that more information will only be revealed when the pre-order goes live on 20 September. So, stay tuned.
