Apple traditionally starts pre-orders for its new gadgets at midnight local time in each country. However, that seems to have changed as it has decided to launch the pre-orders simultaneously around the world.
For buyer in the US, the start is at 5:00 am PDT, same for Canada. Then moving to the UK, the launch will be at 1:00 pm BST, a bit further to Germany go time is at 2:00 pm CEST, then moving all the way to Australia the start is set for 11:00 pm AEDT.
Looking at the different time zones, the start is simultaneous (noon UTC). This means that some people may be up early, while others may need to stay up for them to be among the first to place an order.
For your reminder, it is the two 6.1-inch models, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, that you can pre-order this Friday, they will begin shipping on Friday next week. The iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini will be available for booking on November 6.
