Yes, but there is no duty on them in NZ.

If you bought it while overseas you wouldn't pay duty or gst when you took it back (unless you declared it), but you would still pay local taxes. As for buying them from a duty free shop, they may not have them or allow them as there are limits on how much you can buy.

You can in singapore . There is a apple store in the duty free area at changi airport

Well my advice would be to unwrap it etc so it doesn't look like you just bought it, and avoid and hassle at customs here.

No GST is still on the item, they act as the agent for the tax, if you re-read what they are saying you dont pay tax on the freight! just the product
