Apple iPhone 7 Plus Silicone & Leather Case

The Apple iPhone 7 Plus Silicone Case is retailing for S$58 and there are nine colors available:

After using my Apple iPhone 6s Plus Leather Case (Midnight Blue) for almost a year, the color of the case will stain any objects after it comes into contact with water.

Apple Magic Mouse 2

Bought the Apple Magic Mouse 2 for S$119 because 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

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.

Apple TV (4th Generation)

Pre-ordered the Apple TV (4th Generation) last Monday, 26th October 2015, and it was shipped to me on the official release date which was 30th October 2015 via DHL Express.

In Singapore, the Apple TV (4th Generation) is retailing for S$248 for the 32GB variant and S$318 for the 64GB variant. I bought the 32GB variant because I haven’t figured out if I needed so much space on a media player.
