Apple's new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will be available from Telstra, Vodafone and Optus locally when they officially launch on Friday, 20 September.

The iPhone 5c will be available for pre-order from Telstra and Vodafone beginning on Friday, 13 September. The iPhone 5s will not be available for pre-order; instead, you'll have to hope that there is enough stock available in Apple, Optus, Vodafone and Telstra stores on launch day.

Optus has invited a selected group to pre-order the iPhone 5c in order to make sure that there are as many phones available to customers at launch at 8am, Friday 20 September. The iPhone 5c will not be available for general pre-order through Optus.

Interested parties can sign up for more information from Vodafone through the carrier's Buzz page, and from Optus through its Smartphone Alerts.

Both phones will also be available outright through Apple stores. The iPhone 5s will retail for AU$869 for the 16GB model, AU$999 for the 32GB model and AU$1129 for the 64GB model. The iPhone 5c will retail for AU$739 for the 16GB model and AU$869 for the 32GB model.

4G long-term evolution (LTE) plans will be available through select carriers, although details about pricing and plans are not yet available. We'll be updating this story throughout the day as more information arrives, so stay tuned.
