    First year I'm going to try pre-order but I hear they sell out within hours or less. Can't find this on Apple's site or here, but may be missing it... when EXACTLY does pre-ordering start on 12Sep and what time zone is that in?

    Usually base of Apples time in California 12:01am PST. I preordered the iPhone 4 at 3:01am my time (EST). Set my alarm for like 2:45 to be ready lol. Will do the same again this year

    All places I have read are on point with what Rellyrellz mentioned. Pre-orders to begin at midnight Pacific Daylight Time (PDT United States) Sept 12. Do your time conversions from that starting point.

    HmmmCalifornia will still be under daylight savings then so I think it is 12am PDT.

    I doubt it.
    So you think pre orders will be open to you in Australia first before everyone in California? It will be available to everyone at the exact same time. So if it starts at 12:01 pst on sep 12 in Cali just figure out what time that works out for you there

    It’s actually 12:01 PDT. But that’s a nit.

    I'm in California and Syndey, Australia is 17 hours ahead of us. I doubt they would get that big a head start. 12am in Apple's terms is Cupertino, California time. So 12am here, 2am CT, 3am EST and Australia would actually be September 13th at the point that it is 12am in California.

    Just wanted to throw in something that has nothing to do with any of this. I'm happy I can just stay up, order my phone in 10 minutes and not lose any sleep time in order to make it to the gym at 7am Friday morning. Knowing that I'll be having an iPhone 6 Plus soon after.

    All stores, all carriers, are basing off of the same time, simply converted to where you reside based on 12:01am PDT. If you are pre-ordering from your computer, convert the time zone which you are at, to the PDT time of 12:01am. Don't worry about anything other than that.

    Thanks to everyone for the replies. I used to just read in confusion when people were getting up overnight to be first to order a new phone. I have a 5S which I like very much but wasn't impressed enough with it to be a fast adopter and certainly not give up any sleep. I've NEVER pre-ordered an iPhone and hope I won't regret this (ie; being a crash-test dummy for any early hardware issues). I know folks will point to the fact that Android phones have had a handful of these new hardware options on current and previous devices. But, I don't want an Android phone. I wanted Apple to offer those things and put in an Apple style package and I really feel they delivered. The combo of iOS 8 and an iPlus is the most impressive thing I've seen from Apple since the first iPhone. Double the max memory storage, wifi ac, VoLTE for Verizon, optical image stabilization with a well-beyond Retina resolution screen that can function as a double pane display and on and on... I found myself very impressed and drawn to be an early adopter and, for the first time, willing to set an alarm to get up and pre-order one I still feel a little goofy doing it... but not so goofy that it's gonna change my plans

    Thanks again to all for hashing out to clarify start time and enjoy your new iPhones when they arrive!

    Dang, son, do the calculation. It will happen at 12:00 midnight Thursday night/Friday morning on Cupertino time. So map your location's time zone back to the U.S. Pacific Daylight Time and you’ll know the answer. PDT is GMT-7.

    And we wonder why we’re so far behind the world in math and science skills. SMH
