    They said Oct 17th which is technically 12:01am PT tonight. Or 3:01am for me.

    But just wanna make sure we have confirmation somewhere that it's TONIGHT....

    The time is always then, but are we sure it's tonight vs tomorrow night?

    Yes because tomorrow is technically the 17th. 12:01 after tomorrow would make it the 18th..

    iPhone's and iPad's normally go on sale at 5:01pm AEST here in Australia which is 12:01am PST. But the Apple Australia site says preorders don't start till the 18th, which means either they are doing a staggered preorder start instead of everyone hitting the site an once, which is probably a good idea. Or they could be starting the preorders at a later time than normal.

    Wait until Black Friday, typically $75+ savings.

    That's an interesting observation. With the announcement coming so soon before the pre-order date, I'd venture to guess that they might go with a slightly later start for the pre-orders.
