I have a question which I'm hoping someone can answer. I am from the UK but currently live in Thailand. I will be visiting Singapore early next month and I would like to purchase the iPhone SE. Can I pay for it online through Apple's website to collect there? Or will the fact I have a British credit card not allow me to do it? Does Apple accept PayPal? Does Singapore have Apple stores where you can buy products or just an online store? Thanks.

Remember to claim your GST refund as well at the airport ;)

A white & gold 64gb will do nicely thank you :) Don't use 3D Touch on my 6S+ as it stands. Just wish it was closer to $499 than the actual €599 here .. damn those taxes.

Keep in mind that $499 does NOT include taxes in the U.S.

But, i would buy a new iPhone only outside of Europe, like Hong Kong or Singapore, even cheaper there than in the states*.

*Cheaper in HK, a bit more in Singapore.

$794 in Canada, including the 12% tax. Not an easy-to-swallow pill by any means.

All that free stuff up there costs money. ;)
