Apple iPhone XR: Australian plan pricing compared

Matt Sayer 19 October 2018 NEWS

Which Australian telco offers the best deal on Apple's new iPhone XR? Let's take a look.

Now that Apple's iPhone XR is almost here, the three big Australian mobile providers have all revealed how much the premium smartphone will set you back on one of their contract plans. Telstra, Optus and Vodafone each offer something slightly different, with Telstra giving you the option of an unlimited data plan, Optus doubling the regular data caps of its regular plans and Vodafone letting you choose between 12-month, 24-month and 36-month contracts.

You can compare plans from all three telcos in the table below, or if you already know which network you want to go with, you can view Telstra's iPhone XR plans here, Optus' iPhone XR plans here and Vodafone's iPhone XR plans here.
