We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!
Telstra has been offering both the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max on contract terms since the phones were made available on 21 September 2018. If you're looking for a way to avoid the high outright purchase price, paying the phone off over a 24 or 36-month period on a phone plan is an option worth considering.

Why we like it
Telstra's 60GB M plan strikes a solid balance between cost and value. When paired with the 64GB iPhone XS, you're getting a hefty 60GB of data, and if you use all that up, the inclusion of Peace of Mind Data means you won't have to pay any excess data charges. Combine that with data-free streaming of live sports and Apple Music, and you're getting a whole lot of bang for your buck.

What you need to know about Telstra's iPhone XS plans
All Telstra's iPhone XS plans operate on 24 or 36-month contracts. You can choose between the 64GB, 256GB and 512GB models of both the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max, with larger models increasing your monthly handset repayments.
When you buy an iPhone XS, you'll be eligible for Telstra's New Phone Feeling program. This gives you the ability to upgrade your phone after 12 months, provided you return it to Telstra in good working order, pay an upgrade fee of $149 and take on a new 24 or 36-month contract.
What extras does Telstra offer with its iPhone XS plans?
Telstra packs plenty of extras into all its iPhone XS plans. On top of your standard inclusions, you get unlimited data-free streaming of Telstra's sports streaming services which include AFL, NRL, netball and the Hyundai A-League. You can also stream as much music as you want from Apple Music without impacting your data cap.
You don't have to worry about excess data charges, either, as all Telstra's iPhone XS plans support "Peace of Mind Data". With Peace of Mind Data, exceeding your monthly cap causes your Internet speed to drop to 1.5Mbps (or lower during busy periods) until your billing cycle resets. You can use as much data as you want at these slower speeds without paying any extra, though bear in mind that data-intensive applications like streaming video suffer at 1.5Mbps.
