Vodafone reveals its Apple iPhone XR plans

Matt Sayer 19 October 2018 NEWS

Whether you're looking for a 12-month, 24-month or 36-month contract, here's what buying the iPhone XR will cost you at Vodafone.

It's been a long wait for folks interested in Apple's new iPhone XR. Despite Apple announcing the XR at the same time it revealed the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max back in early September, only the XS and XS Max were made available for pre-ordering in advance of their imminent releases. The iPhone XR was given a late October release date and effectively cast aside in favour of its flashier brethren.

However, now the time has come for the iPhone XR to enjoy the spotlight. Pre-orders for the smartphone open up at 6:01PM AEST tonight, and Vodafone has gotten ahead of the game by unveiling what it's charging for those who prefer the regular payment schedule of a contract plan over shelling out $1,000+ in one lump sum.

Unlike similar iPhone XR plans from Telstra and Optus, Vodafone's offerings don't actually lock you in for a fixed contract period. Instead, you're free to end your phone plan at any point – provided you're happy to pay out any remaining handset repayments all in one go, that is.
