Apple iPhone X zero-rated GST

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.

Here’s the full list:

Model Old Pricing (SRP) New Pricing (0% GST) Savings
iPhone X 64GB MYR5,149 MYR4,857 MYR292
iPhone X 256GB MYR5,899 MYR5,565 MYR334
iPhone 8 Plus 64GB MYR4,149 MYR3,914 MYR235
iPhone 8 Plus 256GB MYR4,899 MYR4,612 MYR287
iPhone 8 64GB MYR3,649 MYR3,442 MYR207
iPhone 8 256GB MYR4,399 MYR4,150 MYR249
iPhone 7 Plus 32GB MYR3,349 MYR3,159 MYR190
iPhone 7 Plus 128GB MYR3,849 MYR3,631 MYR218

iPhone SE 128GB MYR2,249 MYR2,121 MYR128
iPhone 6 32GB MYR1,299 MYR1,225 MYR74

 

In summary, you’re looking at a minimum savings of up to MYR74, all the way up to MYR334. The iPhone X 256GB which carries an SRP of MYR5,149 is now MYR5,565. If you buy it from the official Apple Store on Lazada, however, you’ll save even more. It’s being offered at MYR4,999.

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.

Note that these are Apple official pricing based on its listing on the Apple Online Store as well as official Apple Store on Lazada. You can likely find slightly cheaper devices from other retailers on Lazada, 11street, Shopee and other platforms too.

Apple, of course, isn’t the only company that has announced reduced prices for its devices in line with the zero-rating of GST. Check out Huawei, honor, Proton, Honda, Samsung and more.

So, what do you think? Good time to buy?
