Virgin Mobile first telco to announce new iPhones coming

In what is the shortest media release I’ve ever seen, Virgin Mobile is peeping over the covers to say hi and that iPhones are coming, and has ducked down again.

Optus-owned telco, Virgin Mobile, has announced that it will be offering, as you would naturally expect, the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

There is no mention of the iPhone X, or at least, not yet, with Virgin Mobile telling us what we know – that it will offer “Apple’s latest products starting on 22 September 2017".

If you want to pre-order iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus from Virgin Mobile, you can do so beginning 5.01pm AEST on 15 September at Virgin Mobile's iPhone site, in store, or by calling 13 63 69.

You can read about Apple’s new iPhone X, with a link to the must-see keynote, along with some added info on iPhone 8/8 Plus, Apple TV 4K and LTE-capable Apple Watch here.
