Everywhere In Australia Opening Early To Sell You An iPhone 6 Or iPhone 6 Plus

If you want an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and haven't already pre-ordered one, the only way to get your hands on one on launch day, Friday 19 September, will be to hit an Apple store or a phone retailer. Here's a complete list and map of all the stores that are opening early to sell the device.

Do we recommend queuing for a phone the day it launches? No. The iPhone 6 won't see a successor for at least a year. You have plenty of time. But if you're keen to get one ASAP, these are your options. We'll update this list as more information comes to hand. Note, under Apple's rules, no-one is allowed to sell a phone before 0800 local time in your state.

If you're buying from a carrier, chances are you'll have to sign up for a plan. Check our Planhacker guide which lists all your options so you don't make a foolish decision on the spot. If you buy outright from an Apple store, check out our guide to the best prepaid options.

Also: if you can afford to queue all night and buy a $900 phone, consider donating a blanket to those less fortunate than you.

Here's all the locations we know of on a map:

Comments

    I'd rather not pay $800+ for outdated shiny tech, thanks.

      Than don't buy it. No-one is forcing you to, and you're not impressing anyone either way.

        Wasn't meaning to impress, just find it funny that you guys fork out that much money. To each his own. lel

          Cause we rich and we can.......

    Anybody know a store apart from Apple that will sell an iPhone outright?

      Any word on Dick Smith or JB HiFi?

        third....? any info?

          Check out this Whirlpool thread:

          http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=2311474

      Not a physical store, but Kogan had some, although sold out last time I checked.

    I wonder why people line up for hours, often missing out, rather than just pre-ordering.

    Sure, pre-ordering Friday afternoon was a hit and miss nightmare, But there were a couple of good options - if you wanted to go with Optus, it seems they quickly switched to an "offline ordering" form which you fill out and send away for them to process later. With Telstra, I ended up ordering Saturday morning and it was smooth sailing. I got word this morning that mine has shipped, so nothing was lost by not ordering Friday afternoon/evening (despite the record pre-orders).

      I was planning on pre-ordering if I found the right phone / price. By the time I was through the process of comparing telcos they had all sold out. I went back to Apple and they had slipped to 3-4 weeks.

      Agreed. I tried to order Friday when the meltdown happened. Grabbed some dinner instead and came back a hour or so later and ordered mine just fine.

      I pre-ordered with Virgin Mobile and some back-end glitch lost my pre-order. Not a happy camper because of this. The upside, I saw a lot of videos on the interweb around the iPhone 6 Plus, I am holding out for that one now, since I have my iPhone5 still and it works great, so I will just swop my SIM card between the two if I find the 6+ too big when going out.

    No word on Virgin opening early?

    I love how the list of Telstra stores is triple the size of the list of the others.

      It's because they're dedicated to giving the people what they want and then charging them more for it

    NextByte too will be selling it starting 8am. NextByte store locations:
    http://www.nextbyte.com.au/findus

      are you 100 percent sure about that ? :)

        Nextbyte is selling on Telstra plans only

    Missed Marrickville Metro Telstra! Plenty of parking and had no lines when I got my iPhone 5! I spoke to them today and they said they had about 36 of them ready to go for the morning. Unfortunately Plan Only guys :( See you there tomorrow!!

    Why the hell aren't New Zealand getting the iPhone 6 at the same time as Australia? I'm sick of us missing out on all the newest stuff.

      Maybe it's cheaper to fly all the Apple stock to AU then ship it over to NZ.

    Pre-orders rolling out very quickly this morning already. We have our first unit to add to our testing pool (we develop apps) as of 10am.

    iPhone 6 Plus is a little delayed for delivery (next week by the looks of it).
