Apple blew its 4-inch screens good-bye September 9 by announcing two larger-than-ever-before iPhones, and now the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are hours away from making it to customers ... sort of.
Pre-orders for the two iPhone 6s begin at 12:01 a.m. PT/8:01 a.m GMT/5 p.m. AEST Friday. Apple's online store will roll out the pre-order red carpet for the new iPhones while a number of carriers are taking customer reservations.
Nabbing a new iPhone via pre-order saves you the hassle of queuing up at an Apple Store at 8 a.m. September 19, the official iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus release date. There's nothing wrong with that, of course, especially if you're game to pull an all-nighter.
But, if pre-ordering from the comfort of your home or office sounds like a better option, TechRadar has pooled all the info you need to secure a new iPhone.
Naturally, there's always ordering straight from the online Apple Store if you prefer, though you may be in for some backlog if the site becomes overloaded with pre-orders.
Don't forget the prices
