Apple iPhone 6s to go on sale 5.01pm tomorrow

Telstra, Optus and Vodafone to start pre-sales at 5.01pm

Updated: Pre-orders for Apple's iPhone 6s and 6s Plus commence at 5.01pm tomorrow, representatives from Apple have confirmed.

Last year's iPhones sold in record numbers — 4 million within the first 24 hours — causing the websites of Vodafone, Telstra, and Optus to crash.

Carriers sold out of select models early and had to wait almost a month before fulfilling customer orders.

This generation iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is expected to cost more on postpaid plans to reflect the weakening Australian dollar.

Outright pricing for the introductory 6s is $210 more than its predecessor at $1079, while the respective pricing of the 6s Plus is $220 more at $1229.

Headlining a short list of additional features is 3DTouch, which adds depth-oriented gestures to those already recognised by an iPhone. The technology links the functionality of different applications together through one seamless gesture — as evidenced by Force Touch in the MacBook.

Other changes made to the iPhone 6s series include a faster A9 processor, an improved TouchID finger scanner and better cameras. For the first time in four years, Apple has increased the resolution of its primary camera to 12MP, while the front camera has been bumped up to 5MP.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
