Last week Apple dropped a new mid-range phone – the iPhone SE. While we had expected this for awhile now, nobody really expected it to be so well priced for the amount of inclusions it has.
All three storage options of the iPhone SE come in at under $1000, which means that the plan options aren’t anywhere near as eye-watering as the flagships we’ve all gotten used to. The iPhone SE launches today and here’s what you can expect from Vodafone’s plans.
iPhone SE Specs
If you want more of an in-depth look at the specs, you can read our hot take over here.
But some things worth calling out in this $750 phone are the fact it includes IP67 water resistance, the same A13 Bionic chip as the iPhone 11 (which reportedly helps to boost the single camera photography), Qi wireless charging as well as fast charge and eSIM functionality.
Here’s a full list of the key specs:
- Display: 4.7 inches (1334 x 750)
- CPU: A13 Bionic Chip
- Storage: 64GB, 128GB, 256GB
- Battery: Up to 13 hours video playback, Qi wireless charging, fast charge
- Rear camera: 12MP (f/1.8)
- Front camera: 7MP (f/2.2)
- Video recording: 4K video up to 60 fps
- Water resistance: IP67
- Size: 5.45 x 2.65 x 0.29 inches
- Weight: 148g
- Colour: Black, White, PROJECT(RED)
After months of release rumours - and years of waiting - Apple just dropped its brand new budget iPhone SE. A global pandemic may seem like a really weird time to release a new phone, but considering the recent pricey competition, it might actually be a stroke of genius from Apple. In the very least, this pre-planned release time may still work in its favour. Not only does it offer three models with quite cool inclusions for under $1000, it is adding quite a lot to the mid-range market that the Google Pixel 3a so beautifully disrupted last year. Here's how much the baby iPhone SE will cost in Australia.Read more
iPhone SE Availability Australia
The iPhone SE is available now from Apple and select telcos.
Cheapest Vodafone iPhone SE Plan
The cheapest way to get an iPhone SE through Vodafone is by opting for the 64GB model on a $40 Red Plus Plan, which comes with 10GB data. This will cost you $40 a month for the plan and $19.80 a month for the handset repayments. This comes to $59.80 a month across 36 Months and has the same amount of data.
If you’d prefer the 128GB plan that will cost you a total of $62.02 a month for 36 months.
Best Value Vodafone iPhone SE Plan
Since it’s 2020 and most of us need more storage than we used to, we would recommend opting for either a 128GB version of the iPhone SE but with a decent chunk of data. It’s worth noting that while there is a 256GB model, Vodafone isn’t carrying it.
We’re also not huge on 36-month plans as that’s a big commitment, but if you don’t mine – go for it.
With those things in mind our recommendation for the best value for money and data is the 128GB iPhone SE on the $45 Red Plus plan (it’s usually $50) because it bumps the data all the way up to 60GB a month. Not bad for $5 extra a month. This comes to $78.04 a month across 24 months.

This week Apple dropped its brand new budget iPhone SE. This has us excited because all three storage options for the new device come in at under $1000. Not only that, this thing has some really decent specs for a mid-range phone with an Apple logo on the back. But is it as good as the entry-level iPhone 11 that is already on the market? Let's compare the two.Read more
