iPhone 4/4s now Available in Singapore without any cameras

20 January, 2012 Apple

Removing both the front and rear cameras from an iPhone 4S does not sound like the best way to attract new customers to your network.

That is however, precisely what Singapore-based carrier M1 are offering to potential customers and before you call for the men in white coats to take them away, there is method in their madness.

The operator say that the front and rear camera modules have been completely removed rather than just covered up and the altered hardware means that they 'may not be reinstalled'. But why?

Unless you are from Singapore you may not realize that men are required to fulfill two years of mandatory military service. These 'blind' iPhones have been certified by Singapore Ministry of Defense (Mindef) for use within military installations, meaning those either in the army full-time or just in the service for their compulsory two years, can use them
