If you're looking to buy the iPhone SE outright, prices are as follows:

  • $719 for the 64GB model
  • $799 for the 128GB model
  • $969 for the 256GB model

The phone itself costs the same price if you buy it on a plan from a provider.

Purchasing the iPhone SE 2022 on a plan with Telstra, Optus or Vodafone will break down the price over a 12-, 24- or 36-month repayment period, but you'll also need to add the cost of one of its phone plans.

Are there any iPhone SE 2022 deals?

At the moment, there's only 1 offer available across the main 3 telcos in Australia for the iPhone SE 2022.

  • Vodafone is offering 3 months complimentary Apple TV+ subscription with any iPhone SE purchase.

What are Telstra iPhone SE 2022 plans like?

Assuming you want to pair the iPhone SE with Telstra's cheapest mobile plan (40GB for $55 per month) over 36 months, here's a breakdown of how much you'll be out of pocket.

  • 64GB model: From $75 per month

Signing up to a Telstra phone plan comes with a bunch of perks and features including:

  • 5G network access (on the Medium plan and higher).
  • 12-month free subscription to Disney Plus (Medium plan and higher).
  • No excess data charges. Your speeds will be capped at 1.5Mbps once your monthly data allowance runs out.
  • Unlimited international texts to all countries and at least 30 minutes of free calls.
  • Data-free streaming of live sport.
  • Data sharing with up to 10 upfront mobile or data services linked to your account.

Telstra is known for having higher prices than the other 2 major providers, but if you're after comprehensive mobile coverage across the country, you'll want to sign up to the telco giant to get access to it.

Optus's cheapest SIM-only mobile plan costs $45 per month for 20GGB. If you pair it with its 36-month repayment plan, you could end up paying:

Optus' iPhone SE 2022 prices should be around $10 cheaper a month than Telstra. With only a 1% difference in mobile network coverage, if you spend most of your time in metropolitan areas, you could be better off paying Optus prices.

Signing up with Optus means you also get:

  • Discounted Optus Sport access ($6.99/month) and free OS Fitness.
  • 5G network access on all postpaid SIM-only plans.
  • Endless data. Your speeds will be capped at 1.5Mbps once you've chewed through your monthly data allowance.

  • Infinite data. Your speeds will get capped at 2Mbps once you've used up your monthly data allowance.
  • 3 months of complimentary Apple+ TV.
  • 5G access in selected areas.
  • Access to arguably the best $5 international roaming add-on in Australia.

While Vodafone offers the cheapest prices for its phone plans, consider whether Vodafone's mobile coverage is enough for your needs. It tends to be patchier than Optus and Telstra in regional areas.

Which is better: iPhone SE 2022 or iPhone SE 2020?

You're likely comparing the newest iPhone SE to its predecessor. Here's a quick look at how they compare:
