New Stores Where You Can Buy Openline NTC-Registered Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in the Philippines

According to one of our insiders and trusted sources from the local mobile industry, earlier this year, Apple Inc. actually wrapped up a deal with a group of electronics retailers and distributors in the Philippines (or at least, their representative agency) for them to be official partner carriers of the Cupertino company's smartphones and other devices in the country.

He disclosed to me that Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are actually two of the initial products that these stores will carry as part of their deal with Apple. Some of the new authorized retailers that he mentioned include the following:
  • Memo Express
  • Abenson
  • Electroworld
  • Avant
  • Automatic Appliance
  • Robinson Appliance
  • Aerophone
  • Fone Style Phone Accessories
  • Fonerange
  • Guanzon
  • BSD international Inc.
  • Ambassador Appliance
  • iBook by inbox
  • Fortress
  • Futureworld
  • Sync
  • Techsavy
  • Gadget@xtreme
  • Intogadgets
  • 8Telcom / Gadgets unlimited
He also noted that all of these stores will carry openline NTC-registered Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units at the following prices:

Apple iPhone 6

16GB - Php 36,990
64GB - Php 42,990
128GB - Php 48,490

Apple iPhone 6 Plus

16GB - Php 42,990
64GB - Php 48,490
128GB - Php 54,490

An NTC-registered iPhone, as some of you know, comes with 1 year limited warranty from Apple whereas iPhones that aren't registered with NTC don’t enjoy the warranty coverage that local Apple Authorized service outlets can provide.

Apart from the retailers mentioned above, some of the Cupertino company's authorized partner carriers and stores in the Philippines - I believe - include Smart Communications, Globe Telecom, Beyond The Box, Power Mac Center, and a couple of other stores specializing in Apple devices and accessories.

I'm not sure if you'd agree with me but I believe this exciting development only shows that Apple is starting to increase its presence in the Philippines, which has proven to be one of the most lucrative markets for smartphones in the whole of Asia. As of writing, we don't have flagship Apple Stores yet in the country and the company has yet to set-up a full-fledged local headquarters (I think they only have a few people here handling their partnerships and device distribution but Apple Singapore remains to be the HQ handling the Philippines) but with this new deal, Apple products will definitely become more ubiquitous and more accessible to Filipinos across the archipelago.
