Oh okay, maybe the practice has changed. For PR, it used to show the results - Approved (even it’s AIP) or Rejected. No email, only physical letter. While for citizenship application, the system will show Processing even though AIP has been granted and will only be changed to Approved when the SC Journey programme has been completed.
I see. Anyway, I am prepared to receive a rejection. Hope I am proved wrong.

I'd like to clarify that for Singapore citizenship status, the status on MyICA does change to approved even before AIP letter was received. The AIP letter arrived only a week later with instructions to start the Singapore citizenship journey.

I got my citizenship approved last year end Nov.

Thanks for sharing. That means the practice / process has also been changed. It used to be Processing until the SC Journey is completed.

I must clarify here that my wife emailed ICA about the status and got the reply that the application has been finalized and I will get the outcome letter in 1 or 2 weeks time.

if you send them an email asking a clarification, in any case they eill respond back to you asking you to wait or saying the result will be out shortly. Looks you dont have the patience at all. It can be stressful, but you have to wait for the ienquiry to show the updated status or the letter.

For SC applications, as of 2020, an email notification is received saying there has been an update in your application, and asks to log in to MyICA to check. The status on MyICA changes to 'Approved', and the AIP letter (pdf) can be downloaded from MyICA rightaway. No physical letter is sent.

Same goes for the final approval letter. A status update email notification is received that asks to log in to MyICA and check after completing SC Journey. The Final Approval letter (pdf) can be downloaded right after uploading a photo and making the online payment for the citizenship certificate and nric.

No physical letters are sent anymore, for SC applications at least.

I would have much preferred this approach than waiting for the letters daily lol. I submitted my SC application in Jan 2018 (doc submission at ICA in Jul 2018) so it wasn't online yet.

Thanks for sharing. This is a very useful piece of information. Saves a ton of hassle in repeatedly checking MY ICA just to see the same ‘pending’ status.

Well, I can say with certainty that there are no physical documents to be submitted, or letters sent out at all from start to finish for SC applications as of 2020. No physical documents to be submitted either- everything is scan and upload, or notified via MyICA. So the PR applications might be similar in time to come, if not already.

Slick, except for the waiting part while it is processing and the result is "pending" - that remains the same - for as long as a piece of string.. 8-)
