    Mm....But my question refers to the XS model, not the XS Max. For XS Max, as I posted, dual physical sim from Macao, Mainland and HK. You are going there. Kindly confirm kung tama yun nakalagay sa HK Apple website.

    And Singapore iPhone Xs and XS Max is not dual physical sim but the nano and esim combo. This is the screengrab from Apple Singapore:

    Can someone from Singapore confirm this?

    What are the chances that Smart and Globe would announce support for esim once the Iphone XS and XS Max gets released in the Philippines? It would suck not to get use of the dual sim feature for the phone you paid a hefty premium of.

    Just checked my CC. My order is charged to the card already!

    I ordered the XS max and the AWS4 space grey and the combined value still came out cheaper than buying the XS Max here in india!

    I really want the XS Max 256GB but my conscience and my thin wallet, and my card can't handle the abuse.

    Happy (and extremely jealous) of those who are getting one. Enjoy guys! Makikipindot na lang ako sa Display Units. Haha :D

    VoLTE is yet to be rolled out nationwide and alam ko sa Boracay pa lang meron. While Wifi calling is non existent but both Globe and Smart are agressively pushing 5G by 2019 hahaha :whistle:o_O

    No roll call yet?
    Or maybe that thread begins when people starts to get theirs on-hand.

    And the 6-8 weeks wait time for us in PH begins if u want to get it officialy hehe... went the gray market route with the iPHone X even with the premium markup last year since it was a radical redesign from Apple after 3 years, but with the “s” series i can wait it out, the desire is just average on this one, but will surely get the 512gb once its launched in ph... the apple watch series 4 though is sort of new hardware wise so might get one immediately... sorry for the ot but does apple watches have intl warranty like ipads or its like the iphone where warranty s restricted regionally? Many Thanks

    Anyone here tried ordering at the US Apple Store using a PH credit card but had the iphone shipped in the US? My cousin is located here in the PH but her mom is in the US.

    Mm...from what I know, PH-issued credit cards are a no-go. They check for credit card billing address and it has to be USA. If her mom is in the US, she can just preorder and pick it up at the nearest Apple Store.
