Maxis Berhad yesterday launched the much-anticipated iPhone 5 at the PIKOM ICT Mall @ CapSquare, Kuala Lumpur, with general availability at all Maxis Centres and Maxis Exclusive Partners (MEPs) nationwide today (December 14, 2012). Unlike the previous launches, this year saw the integration of Passbook, which serves to enhance the pre-booking experience.

“Maxis was the first to bring the iPhone to Malaysia three years ago, and we are proud to once again bring the iPhone 5, which clearly underlines our continued leadership in partnering with Apple in bringing the famed device with plans of compelling value to our customers," commented Suren J Amarasekera, Joint Chief Operating Officer, Maxis Berhad.

The launch of the iPhone 5 brings newly revamped iValue plans that start from RM50 per month, along with 10GB of Loker cloud storage, exclusive app offerings (e.g. Maxis Traffic, Maxis Rewards) and the new Visual Voicemail, which pushes voicemail to the user's phone without having to manually dial the voicemail service.

For the iPhone 5, customers can take advantage of 0% interest installment plan with Maxis' flexible iValue plans, while Maxis One Club (MOC) members will receive an additional discount should they opt for an iValue 2 plan or above.

“Our fastest and widest network in the country enables us to deliver the best experiences to our customers and remain as the preferred choice for iPhone 5 users. Together with this, the device offers cutting-edge technology and features, and we are certain that customers will appreciate all it has to offer,” added Suren.
