Telstra cuts iPhone SE prices



You can now score Apple’s smallest iPhone with no handset repayments on contract with Telstra.

Apple won’t admit it in any way shape or form, not even we suspect under torture, but there’s not much real world doubt that the iPhone SE is Apple’s play at a "budget" iPhone. It’s smaller than the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, instead opting for the form factor of the iPhone 5/5s handset with essentially the innards of an iPhone 6s inside. But while it's a "budget" offering, for most telcos you’ve had to at least pay a little on top of your monthly handset repayment price to secure one.

Telstra has just altered its contract pricing on the entry level 16GB iPhone SE across its plans, dropping handset repayments at every tier until 3 January 2017.

This now means you can grab an iPhone SE 16GB on Telstra’s network for as little as $55 per month with nothing additional to pay. That would score you a contract with $550 of credit towards standard national calls, unlimited texts and 1GB of data to use per month, with excess data charged at $10 per GB. In terms of extras, you would also score a 6 month Apple Music subscription with that deal.
