Apple Pay (VISA & MasterCard) Now In Singapore
· ·

Slightly more than a month after Apple Pay for AMEX launches in Singapore, Apple Pay for VISA and MasterCard holders are finally available in Singapore.

Unfortunately, not all banks are on the list. For the initial roll out only credit cards from these five banks are supported: POSB, DBS Bank, OCBC Bank, United Overseas Bank (UOB) and Standard Chartered Bank (SCB).

Bought the Apple Magic Mouse 2 for S$119 beacuse my old Magic Mouse had spoilt.

I am able to connect my old Magic Mouse to my iMac but when I move the mouse, the cursor still stays put. Tried changing batteries and even using a different Mac, both method didn’t work which makes me conclude that it is spoilt for good.

Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock is retailing for S$118 in Singapore but I got mine in Bangkok, Thailand, from iStudio at Siam Paragon for TH฿3,300 (S$131). It is S$13 more expensive than Singapore. Even after the VAT refund of ฿215 (S$8.50), it is still more expensive.

The Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock is smaller (measuring at 10.4cm in diameter) and much heavier than I expected (weighing at 154g).

Apple USB-C Charge Cable (2m)

The Apple USB Type-C Cable is retailing for S$42 and comes in only one length which is 2m. I wish they have it in 0.5m and 1m as well.

There are no markings on the USB ends on the cable because there is no need to since it has a reversible plug orientation. This is similar to the Apple Lighting cable as there is no marking on the Lightning end of that cable as well.
