Buying The Apple Watch
I was supposed to go to the media launch of the Apple Watch at nubox (Raffles City) if they can reserve a set for me. Because if I went for the event, I would not be able to queue if the queue is short. Unfortunately, they didn’t get back to me till I was in the queue, so I ended up forgoing the media event and joined the queue because it was rather short (I was 36th in line at 8.15am; launch is at 9am). I was intending to buy it online anyway if the queue is long.
The queue was deceiving, it takes about 90 minutes after the official launch timing (9am) to clear 36 people in the queue (I went in about 10.30am). The queue was moving way too slow because they only allowed 2 people into the store at a time (maybe because of Apple’s policy?).
Asked my mom to get me the Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter from iStudio in Changi Airport because she is travelling to Hong Kong with my dad. The retail price is S$108 but if you get it from the Airport, you don’t have to pay tax for it. So it is cheaper by about 7%, so it cost about S$100.93.
The Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter is meant for MacBook Pro Retina 13″. As long as your MacBook uses 60W or less, you can use this particular adapter. Case in point, you can use this power adapter with MacBook Air 11″ or MacBook Air 13″.
The Apple iPhone 6 Plus Leather Case is retailing for S$68 and my brother ordered it together with the iPhone 6 Plus. But unfortunately, the case got shipped first and we received it yesterday while the iPhone 6 Plus is still stuck in the status, Processing Items.
There are five colors available for Apple iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus Leather Case: Black, (PRODUCT) Red, Midnight Blue, Olive Brown and Soft Pink.
During the pre-order of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on the Apple Singapore Store at about 3.30pm, I am one of the many users who ran into problems buying the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus because clicking on the Select button as shown in the red box below does nothing. It should redirect you to another page so that you can add that into the cart. But unfortunately, that doesn’t happen.
Thanks to my colleague, Li Soon, who spotted the link and sent it to me. So for the next wave of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, just use the direct links below and click “Add to Cart” button on the right.
Apple announced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at this morning event. The good news is that as usual, Singapore is one of the nine countries that will be available at the official launch date of 19th September 2014 alongside United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, Hong Kong and Japan. I thought China would be in the list as Apple seems to be focusing a lot of China lately.
The only difference between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is the screen/display. In addition, the iPhone 6 Plus has optical image stabilisation vs the digital image stabilisation on the iPhone 6.
