After Apple Malaysia unveiled the official iPhone 5S/5C price in Malaysia, Maxis Berhad sent an email to its Maxis One Club (MOC, read: VIP customers) inviting to pre-book iPhone 5S.

What’s interesting is that the email includes a unique-to-each-customer-link to Maxis iPhone 5S/5C plan – before the official release date on 31st October 2013.

Referring to the table at the top of this post, at the first glance, the iValue plans remain the same offer as in 2012, except now you get 1000 bundled Maxis-to-Maxis SMS and Maxis Loker cloud storage that you never use.

You also notice that iValue Simple (RM50/month) is not eligible for Maxis iPhone 24-month contract.

Interestingly, Maxis does not offer iPhone 5C 32GB, which has same recommended retail price (RRP) as iPhone 5S 16GB – RM 2,399.

Though iPhone 5S models have the same price as iPhone 5 at launch in U.S., but iPhone 5S price in Malaysia is more expensive.

Maxis subsidize more on iPhone 5S this year than last year for iPhone 5. Refer the table below for Maxis iPhone 5S/5C/5 subsidizations:

  1. Don’t know why Malaysia is selling the iPhone 5S more expensive than iPhone 5 last time.
    They should have lower the iPhone 5C at maybe RM1699 to make it more relevant, and iPhone 5S at RM2199 for 16GB.

    They are just ripping us off, even with the subsidized plan it is still very expensive.
