Want to buy an iPhone 7? Yeah, us too. Here’s how much it’ll cost you in Australia, and when you can buy one of your very own.
Australian Pre-Order And Release Date
The phone itself goes on sale in Australia on Friday September 16. That’s only one week after pre-orders rather than the usual two, which is an interesting departure from form for Apple.
While you’ll be able to order the phone through Australia’s major telcos as well as from Apple itself, we don’t have on-plan pricing just yet. But the phone, like in previous years, will launch through Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and Virgin Mobile on the same day as you’ll be able to buy it from the Apple Store.
Second up with plan pricing for the brand new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is Telstra. Telstra will offer the iPhone 7 from as little as $85 per month on its Small plan with 1GB of data, $550 of calls and unlimited messages.
Optus has released its on-contract pricing for the brand new iPhone 7. Optus will offer the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus on a range of plans, starting from as little as $40 per month and a total cost of $68 per month including handset repayment.
Vodafone is first out of the gates with its on-contract pricing for the brand new iPhone 7. Vodafone will offer the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus on a range of plans, starting from as little as $40 per month and a total cost of $76 per month including handset repayment.
Rounding out the pack of the major four telcos’ iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus plan pricing is Virgin, who will give you an iPhone 7 for as little as $62 a month on the company’s $30 plan — making it the cheapest iPhone 7 plan available.
The cheapest iPhone 7 that you’ll be able to buy outright will be $1079, and the cheapest iPhone 7 Plus will be $1269. Those are the prices for the entry-level 32GB version of the phone, but there will also be 128GB and 256GB variants of both available.
The 128GB iPhone 7 will set you back $1229, while the 128GB iPhone 7 Plus is $1419. The 256GB iPhone 7 is $1379, and the most expensive phone you’ll be able to buy, the 256GB iPhone 7 Plus, is $1569. Those are outright prices, obviously — the phone will seem a hell of a lot cheaper if you buy it with a monthly repayment option on a plan from a telco.
