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.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
