How to watch Apple’s iPhone launch in Australia

The tenth anniversary of Apple’s world-changing iPhone is coming up.

If you’re in Australia, you can still get on board the hype train. This is everything you need to know.


Apple’s special event will be held (for the very first time) at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California on September 13 2017.

The space is part of the 13-year project to build an inclusive, on-brand campus for Apple. If you missed it, every detail of the campus was well-considered.


The keynote will begin at 10am PDT on September 13 2017, which is 3am AEST.

Here are the watch times for each Australian capital city:

  • Western Australia                        – Wednesday, September 13, 1:00am
  • South Australia                            – Wednesday, September 13, 2.30am
  • Northern Territory                      – Wednesday, September 13, 2.30am
  • NSW, VIC, ACT, QLD, TAS       – Wednesday, September 13, 3:00am

How to watch

You can live-stream the keynote address via Apple’s event site (you can add it to your calendar now), or watch the keynote on Youtube

This is a great countdown to use. At the time of writing, Aussies have 1 day, 11 hours, 7 minutes and 57 seconds to wait!

What will be announced?

Officially, nothing’s been released.

Unofficially, a tonne of leaks just spilled out of Apple HQ.

There’s strong indications that three phones will be released – the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. But the names aren’t the most important aspect. Some of the most exciting features include wireless charging, copper colouring, facial recognition and animated emojis.

Of course, we’ll have to wait until September 13 to see them in action. We’ll be live blogging the keynote, as well as keeping you updated on every new product with Australian pricing.

See you there!
