The iPhone 6s goes official in Malaysia at midnight tonight (16th October). So if you’re planning to get one, we’ve compiled all the essential things that you should know for the big day. Whether it is buying on contract, or outright from retailers, we’ve got them covered. Read on for our iPhone 6s/iPhone 6s Plus Buyers’ Guide.
Price and models
The latest iPhone 6s is the most expensive yet, due to our weakening Malaysian Ringgit against the US Dollar. The iPhone 6s is priced from RM3,199 for the base 16GB model, while the phablet sized iPhone 6s Plus is priced from RM3,699 (both including GST). In terms of colours, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are offered in Space Grey, Silver, Gold and Rose Gold. Stocks for Rose Gold are very limited and it is expected to be a hot selling item.
iPhone 6s Telco Offers
This time, Malaysians have a total of 22 plans to choose from the big 4 telcos namely Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile. Majority of such plans come with 24 months contract but for those who prefer to commit to shorter duration, both Maxis and Digi are also offering 12 months duration with selected plans. To learn more about the plans and how much it will cost in the long run, do check out our iPhone 6s Telco Comparison Guide.
