How To Buy iPad Mini in Singapore?

If you are thinking of how to buy iPad Mini in Singapore, you have come to the right place as I will be sharing some tips with you on how to purchase the popular Apple tablet in Singapore.

TheĀ  Apple iPad has been launched in April in USA in 2010,and the first launch outside USA is on 28 May, in countries like United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Australia, Switzerland, Spain, Britain and Canada.

iPad Singapore Release Date

As for Singapore, the official launch is on 23rd July 2010. However, many Singaporeans have already ordered their iPads from USA via amazon, and some other third party forwarders.

If you have friends in USA, you are in luck because you can simply ask them to buy the iPad from any apple store and then get a forwarder to ship the iPad to you. This is the easiest and yet cheapest way to buy your iPad in Singapore.

Since Australia has also just launched the apple iPad, you can use the same method. Better still, you can get a cheap plane ticket to Sydney for a short holiday and then buy the iPad from there, while enjoying your stay there. Click Here To Order Latest Apple iPad Now

If both methods are impossible for you, the next way is to try and order from amazon and then get vpost to ship the ipad to your address in Singapore. You will fill in the shipping address of vpost in USA when ordering from amazon. This has been tested with amazon kindle which is not available in Singapore as of now, with great success.

Buy iPad At Apple Store Singapore

The next method, though more expensive way is to buy locally from Sim Lim Sqaure. Beware that some of the shops there charges very high price, as much as $1000 for a 16GB wifi model. If you can wait till July, then the easiest way is to get directly from the supplier. The advantage of buying your iPad from Apple Singapore online store is that you will get the best price and also you can rest assured that your order will definitely be fulfilled.

And yes, no more waiting in queues for 24 hours just like what happened in other countries. However, if you have the time to queue up to get the apple iPad from the reseller, you can check out epicentre at ion orchard. According to the staff there, iPad will be available at the store at the end of July.

According to the iPad prices from Australia apple online store, the 64GB Wi-Fi + 3G model is retailing at a price of A$1,049, which based on the current exchange rate, it should be around SGD$1271.

Therefore, you should be expecting about SGD$1,300 – SGD$1,350 for the 64GB Wi-Fi + 3G model when it is available for preorder in July from the Singapore apple online store.

Both the Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi+3G versions of the iPad will be on sale online at a price of between S$728 for the Wi-Fi 16GB model, and S$1028 for the top end 64GB Wi-Fi. But if you buy from Amazon, you can get it from only $465.

The 16GB Wi-Fi+3G model should retail at S$928 and the 64GB Wi-Fi+3G model comes in at S$1228.

There is also the 32GB iPad which should retail at S$878 for the Wi-Fi model and S$1078 for the Wi-Fi+3G.

You can also choose the 12 months installment plan plus FREE Shipping to your home when you buy iPad in Singapore from the apple online store.

The requirements is that you need to have a citibank credit card and the total order should be at leastĀ  SGD$1,300 then you will be qualified to apply for the 12 months interest free installment plan.

    Hi, Just wondering if the ipad bought either locally or through Amazon will enjoy the warranty privileges?

    • admin says:

      I checked from a local retail shop selling iPad in Singapore and I was told that the warranty is valid for any country.

    When can i pre-order iPad on Apple Online sinagpore?

      Hi Jasmine,

      This is a good question. When iPad was launched island wide on 23rd July, most models were sold out within hours. I’m guessing that iPad could be available for order online on the Apple Singapore online store from 30th July onwards, which is the same launch date for iPhone 4.

    Will it be available at Apple Reseller stores in Singapore during Sept? Don’t want to travel all the way to find myself on the waiting list. Foreigners are entitled to a deduction on the GST, am I right?

    I need help to configure my mails calendars and contacts for the ipad. It is very tough and calling Apple was not helpful at all. Do you guys help with configuration. I dont mind paying some fees since the iPad is useless if I cant do real work on it. Thanks

  10. lim says:

    Or perhaps give me a suggestion where I can go to seek help with setup and config. I am on apple for years and yet this is tougher than expected. I have read a lot of blogs on it and seems like no one has a consistent method that works consistently. Pls help.

  11. Jacky says:

    Who an idiot will believe Ipad selling at SGD728 and now only SGD38? Apple shop should have bankrupt by now! People are putting hook for “water fish” (stupid idiot).
