If you’ve been disappointed that Malaysia was yet again relegated to the lowest ebb of Apple’s third tier and not in the list of 36 additional countries that would get the new iPhone 6 by end of October, we have good news and then some bad news.
The bad news that we are still in the third tier of countries in Apple’s books. Malaysia was widely expected to be one of the 36 countries to receive the iPhone 6 by end of October.
Unfortunately, that did not happen, possibly due to the release of the phones in China on 17 October.
The good news is, the wait is almost over. Maxis has officially announced that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is indeed coming to Malaysian shores come Thursday, 6 November 2014.
Get official updates for the Maxis iPhone 6 availability below:
The new iPhone 6 is now available in 69 countries, and is set to reach 115 countries by the end of the year. This makes it Apple’s fastest-ever iPhone rollout ever.
