iPhones in Malaysia now cheaper


Following the introduction of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, Apple wasted no time in trimming the dead wood in its device lineup. Expectedly, it also did some price slashing on older iPhone models. So, if you’re looking to buy an iPhone but don’t need fancy edge-to-edge OLED displays and wallet-trimming price tags, then you’re in for a treat.

As you know, Apple dropped the iPhone X, iPhone 6s (and iPhone 6), iPhone 6s Plus and the iPhone SE from its line-up. This leaves the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 series running alongside the new trio.

The base iPhone 7 with 32GB of storage is the cheapest iPhone you can own, at MYR2,199. This is a good MYR1,000 lower than its original launch price in 2016.

The iPhone 8 64GB isn’t too bad an idea either, price slashed from MYR3,422 to MYR2,899.

The iPhone 8 Plus is a solid smartphone and holds its own in these days of bezel-less, notched displays. The top-of-the-line 256GB model retails for MYR3,999 (from MYR4,612), which puts it in iPhone XS territory (64GB for USD999).

Buy the new iPhone XS or settle for a slightly older generation for much less? That’s always a tough decision to make isn’t it?
