The iPhone 12 Pro has reached Australia and it is sporting 5G capability. Since 5G plans are now actually a thing you can buy – from Telstra, Vodafone and Optus – you may be able to take advantage of this.

Compared to the iPhone 12, the Pro is a bit heavier but has an extra camera lens and some more memory. It does cost quite a bit more though, so expect your monthly phone plan to cost a bit extra too

Telstra iPhone 12 Pro plans

Telstra has Australia's largest mobile network for you to get an iPhone 12 Pro on and its plans come with no excess data charges too.

While Telstra has the priciest plans, starting at $55 (without handset repayments), it does have heaps of bonus features to entice you:

  • Tied largest 5G network with Optus
  • Get movie tickets, tech and more with Telstra Plus rewards
  • Free national Wi-Fi network, Telstra Air, for all customers
  • You can stream selected sports and Apple Music without using data
  • Excess data past your monthly data cap is free at a slower download rate

A Telstra phone contract comes with the choice of 12 or 24 months, with an early cancellation meaning you'll have to pay off the rest of the phone. You can switch freely between Telstra plans even while on contract once per month.

Optus iPhone 12 Pro plans

Cheaper than even Vodafone once its limited offers expire, Optus is a fine way to pick up the iPhone 12 Pro. Plans stretch from 10GB to 500GB data allowances.

Interested in Optus's extras? This is what it has:

  • Tied largest 5G network with Telstra
  • Get 5G access on every SIM only plan if you're within Optus's coverage area
  • Complimentary Optus Sport subscription
  • Data sharing for users on the same account

Optus is a pretty good choice if budget is your concern, since you'll get 5G access even on its cheapest plan, unlike with Telstra. Pick a contract length of 12, 24 or 36 months and only pay off the rest of the handset if you want to quit early.

Vodafone iPhone 12 Pro plans

Vodafone has good promotional discounts for anyone looking to pick up an iPhone 12 Pro on a plan before the end of November, on all its postpaid plans.

A point of difference for Vodafone is that its plans offer capped download speeds up to 25Mbps, even after you've exceeded your limit. Compare this to Telstra, which only offers 1.5Mbps in the same situation, and you'll find that Vodafone shines in this aspect. You can select a repayment period of 12, 24 or 36 months to go with your plan.

Is it cheaper to buy the iPhone 12 Pro outright?

Depending on what plan you pick, yes, it is. Compare buying it on Telstra's Small plan with buying it outright and pairing it with Belong's $40 for 40GB mobile plan, both over the course of 24 months.

Bought on a planBought outright
iPhone 12 Pro 128GB (outright cost)$0$1,699
Monthly handset repayments (24 month contract)$70.79$0
Plan nameTelstra Small SIM onlyBelong 40GB SIM only
Data allowance40GB40GB
Monthly plan cost$55$40
Total monthly cost (phone + plan)$125.79$40
Total cost$125.79 x 24 = $3,019$40 x 24 + $1,699 = $2,659

With Belong's plan, you'll save $360 over 2 years. You can save even more by investing in a cheaper phone plan, since you're not tied to the high prices of Vodafone, Telstra or Optus.

The main advantage of a plan is you get to dodge the rather expensive price tag on the iPhone 12 Pro outright and instead spread the cost over a longer period of time. The longer the repayment period, the less you'll pay per month, but the longer you'll be stuck with those pricey providers. Decide whether the smaller repayments but overall extra cost is worth it for your circumstances.
