This is my second time to experience living in a country where the latest iPhone is released at the same time as the States. The first time was in 2012 when the iPhone 5 was released. I bought mine in Yishun along with a corporate subsidy thanks to my previous employer.
With my 2-year StarHub contract expiring next month, having a new phone is rather enticing. Perfect timing because Apple released its larger iPhone 6 series last week. Singapore is one of the first to get the new iPhone in the region.
There were queues especially on the night before the launch. I’m planning to upgrade my phone in October. So i hope they still have stocks.
Major telecoms in Singapore keep these availability charts posted outside their stores. Saves the staff the trouble of turning people down.
Are you getting the iPhone soon?
