Love them or hate them, you can't deny that Apple changed the world when it launched the first iPhone. While the smartphone wasn't a unique idea, the combination of a simple, intuitive user interface and a capacitive touchscreen for easy control changed the way people thought of mobile phones. The arrival of the App Store further cemented Apple’s iPhone as the pioneering force in making the smartphone the essential part of daily life that it is today. Since that original iPhone launched, competitors have managed to catch up and in some cases exceed the capabilities of the iPhone.

Google's Android platform has delivered some of the best smartphones money can buy, from the Samsung Galaxy range to the premium Nexus devices, while Microsoft continues to plug away with the Windows Phone. But despite the massive competition, there's still massive demand for Apple's iPhone devices. In Australia particularly, the iPhone has long been one of the most popular devices on the market.

Apple's strategy for iPhone releases has changed remarkably since it unveiled the original 2G model. In 2014, Apple backtracked on the infamous comments of Steve Jobs to release a Plus-sized variant in the form of the iPhone 6 Plus, which combined a bigger, phablet device with the iOS platform. This addition to the lineup saw Apple move to offer a smartphone lineup of two markedly different devices, instead of just a single model with three different storage capacities.

Then in early 2016, the Cupertino company released the iPhone SE, a device that replicated a three year old design but with the latest processors and camera inside. Because of Apple's annual product lifecycle, there is a very obvious structure to its launch plans.

Now that Apple has launched the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, it's been confirmed that Apple has stopped selling the iPhone 6 completely, though you can still get it from certain third party retailers, and even on contract. Apple also reduced the available capacities of the iPhone 6S purely to the 32GB and 128GB versions.

Of course, you may still be able to grab the old 16GB and 64GB capacity variants for a while if you shop around, but if you want to get a larger capacity device for your apps, music, games and videos, you're going to be better off looking at the newer handsets. The table above compares all the currently available iPhone plans across the major telcos. If you want to consider buying the phone outright and getting a prepaid or no-contract monthly SIM plan, you can use the table modifiers to compare the overall costs of your purchase to get the best iPhone plan for you.
