The iPhone XS Is On Sale In Australia Today

Today's the day! If you're keen to get your hands on a new iPhone XS or XS Max - you can!

The Apple store flung its doors open for business at 8am, and considering that pre-orders didn't run out this year — stock levels are likely to be fine. We have also noticed in recent years that the lines outside the Apple Stores are getting less crazy.

Part of the reason for this may be that the pre-order process and delivery have improved significantly. The best part about this is that if you did put in for a pre-order, it is also supposed to arrive today. Why wait in line when you can have it hand delivered?

If you need a pricing reminder, the XS comes in three sizes — The 64GB for $1,629, 256GB for $1,879 and the 512GB for $2,199.

Similarly, the XS Max has the 64GB for $1,799, the 256GB for 2,049 and the 512GB for $2,369.

If the iPhone XR is more appealing to you, sadly they aren't available yet. In a reversal from last year, the flagship phones are arriving before the budget ones. The XR will be available for pre-order from October 19 and will ship on October 26. It will come in three storage sizes — 64GB for $1,229, 128GB for $1,299 and 256GB at $1,479.
