Malaysia’s unpopular Goods and Services Tax (GST) is officially zero-rated today. This can only mean one thing. Lower prices for many things and services, and for gadget freaks, it also means cheaper gear. Apple has updated pricing of their iPhone line-up and you stand to save up to MYR334 with 0% GST.

At the bottom rung, the still popular iPhone 6 32GB gets a small savings, from MYR1,299 to MYR1,225. If you pick one up from the official Apple Store on Lazada, it goes for just MYR1,089.
