Apple iPhone 5S Malaysia Release Date and Specs

While the official announcement from Apple yesterday outed the Malaysia release date for the Apple iPhone 5S and 5C as 1 November 2013, a look at the Apple Malaysia site reveals another date. When you scroll down to the Shop online option the date you can start ordering online at the Malaysian Apple store is 31 October 2013. This means if you're looking to get the Gold Apple iPhone 5S then you should be prepared for a midnight rush on 30 October 2013. Looking back at the wording of the announcement and it specifically says "by 1 November 2013" which means that 31 October 2013 also works as it is before the 1 November 2013 deadline.

Apple has just announced the second phase of it's iPhone roll-out and Malaysia is on the list. With this, Apple has officially confirmed that the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C will be launched in Malaysia on 1 November 2013. While the announcement covers the Malaysia release date, it doesn't include pricing, so we still don't know the official price of either smartphone. In this case we're happy to be wrong with our initial release date estimates of December 2013 but prices are likely to be a bit higher this time around due to the weaker Ringgit and a currency exchange between US Dollars and the Ringgit. We expect that on the launch date of 1 November 2013, all the major telcos will release their Apple iPhone 5C or 5S bundles as well but it will also likely be made available at other local retail sellers. Stay tuned and we'll keep you posted as to any new development.

The US Apple Store will start accepting orders for the Apple iPhone 5S starting 20 September 2013 at 3.01am EDT. With Malaysia being 12 hours ahead of the US (and if the Malaysia store opens up at the same time, which is slightly doubtful due to the much later Apple iPhone 5 release last year and no pre-order period yet) this could set the Malaysia release date for the Apple iPhone 5S at 3.01pm for us here in Malaysia. Do note that previous pre-orders for China saw the Gold and Silver versions going first so keep watch if you're gunning for these colours. For a refresher on Malaysia pricing for the Apple iPhone 5S, check out our price estimates in the table below: 

Apple iPhone 5S Pricing off contract* 16GB storage 32GB storage 64GB storage
Apple iPhone 5S RM2199 RM2499 RM2799

* Pricing is based on prices in other regions and previous local pricing. Actual local pricing in Malaysia may yet change either higher or lower.
