The new iPhones- iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are now up for pre-order and will be available in Apple Stores September 19. Yes, but this does not hold true for Philippines.
Trying to get these phones earlier than anyone here in PH?
1. Singapore/Hongkong Apple Stores
In Asia, we have two neighbors that follows the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus (unlocked) availability with US.
Apple Singapore Online Store
At around P35,000, you can get the iPhone 6 16GB and P41,000 for the iPhone 6 Plus 16GB. If you have friends who are there or will go there for some days, then they are your angels. Prices above obviously doesn’t include the freight.
Any thoughts about SG/HK blackmarkets? You may share it.
In Cebu, you can find it in SM Cyberzone and Ayala’s Maze. As per observation, they are mostly available a month after the launch and carries a much higher price tag.
Kimstore is also one of the trusted online sites that sells iPhones before its official launching here in PH.
3. Globe and Smart
Last year, iPhone 5s became available November 15, 2013, that’s 2 months after the Sept 2013 launch. For as low as Plan 999 with cashout of P28,000, I got the 32GB version of gold iPhone 5s.
4. Apple Retail Stores, iStores, iCenter
They will offer new iPhones normally when the phone is officially launched in the country so probably same timing with telcos.
