Apple lifted the lid of its newest generation iPhone 5 in a long awaited event this morning in San Francisco. One of the phone's new features is worldwide 4G LTE connectivity and Apple confirmed the iPhone 5 will work on Australian 4G networks offered by Telstra, Optus and Optus MVNO Virgin Mobile.

The iPhone 5 marks the first time an LTE capable Apple device has worked on Australian 4G networks. Apple's new iPad, unveiled in February, is marketed as a 4G device but doesn't support the 1800MHz 4G network bands used in Australia by Telstra and Optus.

The iPhone 5 has a single chip for voice and data and a single radio chip, Apple confirmed.

The iPhone 5 will be released in Australia on Friday 21 September. It will come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models with Australian pricing starting at $799 for the 16GB model. The 32GB model will set you back $899 and the 64GB version will cost $999.
