iPhone 5S and 5C now available for pre-registration in Singapore


Major telcos in Singapore have announced that they are accepting pre-registrations for the new iPhone 5S and 5C.

iPhone fans in Singapore can now register their interest for the newly announced iPhone 5S and 5C through mobile telco SingTel and StarHub.

For SingTel, the registration form can be found on their website.

StarHub subscribers on the other hand, can also pre register your interest today. Here’s the official announcement from StarHub:

“StarHub today announced it will offer iPhone 5s, the most forward-thinking smartphone in the world, and iPhone 5c, the most colorful iPhone yet, to customers beginning on Friday, September 20. iPhone 5c will be available for pre-order on Friday, September 13 at 11.59pm. Customers may pre-register interest today.”

StarHub subscribers can register their interest through the StarHub iPhone website here.

For Mobile One (M1) customers, you can only pre-register for updates on the new iPhones but “not for confirmation of purchase”.

The subsidised pricing for the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5S is also not provided by all the three telcos in Singapore.

It is expected that demand for the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will be through the roof, as Singapore is among the eight countries globally to be able to get her hands on the new model come September 20th. Apple fans in the region are expected to flock to Singapore to purchase the new iPhone 5S, which features a whole new fingerprint sensor and the world’s first 64 bit processor, or the iPhone 5C, which caters to consumers looking for lower cost smartphones.

So how many of you are getting the new iPhone?
