If you’re mad keen to place a pre-order for the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow, you won’t have to get up early. It looks like Australian orders won’t open until 1700 — that’s five in the afternoon for the time-challenged.

[related title=”iPHONE 6″ tag=”iphone-6″ items=”4″]Vodafone has listed 5pm on the front page of its site, Telstra has listed 501pm, and we’d imagine the same restriction will apply to other carriers. That lines up with the beginning of 12 September in the US, which means it’s effectively a global on-sale time.
If you’re planning on buying the phone in person, Apple says in-store sales will begin at 8am AEST on Friday 19 September. To be honest, pre-ordering (whether via Apple or a carrier) makes more sense — queuing is highly overrated. Either way, expect the higher capacity 128GB models to sell out first. If you’re not upgrading, you can jump to iOS 8 right now.
