iPhone 7 & 7 Plus Plans Compared

Advertisement

Apple’s iPhone 7 and 7 Plus may not be the company’s newest (and priciest) flagship devices, but they’re far from obsolete. If you’re looking for an alternative to super-sized phablets, but still want high-end specs and awesome features, the iPhone 7 range may be your perfect match.

The best reason to opt for the 7 over the iPhone X, iPhone 8 or the iPhone XS? The cheaper monthly and outright pricing. You’ll get all of the Apple inclusions you’d expect (the latest iOS, great cameras, water and dust resistance, Touch ID, and a powerful performance), but with a reduced price tag.

iPhone 7 Plans

If you’d like to buy the standard iPhone 7 on a plan, good news:  Telstra and Optus both offer the device on their two-year plans.  There’s only one storage size currently available for the iPhone 7 with the 32GB model and you’ll only be able to pick it up from Optus as Telstra no longer has stock available.

Telstra iPhone 7 Plans

Telstra no longer stocks the iPhone 7. If you’re interested in other iPhones, the below table includes the plans which can be bundled with these devices. Note that these plan prices do not include your device payments, which will be an additional monthly cost depending on your device of choice. This table includes links to a referral partner.

Optus iPhone 7 Plans

Optus customers can buy the iPhone 7 on a standard two-year phone plan, which combines the cost of your phone payment with your monthly service charges. Unlike newer iPhone models, the 7 isn’t available on Optus’ My Plan Flex lease options, so your phone will be yours to keep after the two-year contract is up.

Optus only has stocks of the 32GB iPhone 7 available. Plans for this model start from $55 per month, which includes a $10 handset payment and a $45 plan fee. The $45 Optus plan includes unlimited standard national talk and text and 4GB of monthly data.

You’ll also get data-free streaming from Optus Sport and National Geographic. These bonuses are also included on all below Optus postpaid plans.

The iPhone 7 Plus

Want something a little bigger? The 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus is no longer available from Optus and Telstra, however, if you’re interested in buying your 7 Plus upfront and pairing it with a SIM-only plan, you might still find stocks available from retailers.

Is an iPhone 7 plan worth it?

The decision to buy the iPhone 7 will likely weigh on how much stock you put in owning the ‘latest and greatest’ devices. There’s no doubt it’s an excellent smartphone, but it’s been almost years since the iPhone 7’s release – so if your preference is the absolute fastest and feature-packed Apple device available, you may be happier with iPhone 8, 8 Plus or even grabbing the newer XR.

The iPhone 8 is quite similar to the 7 in terms of specs and inclusions; you’ll get virtually the same 4.7-inch Retina HD display, cameras, and battery life. The big difference is in storage size: the iPhone 8 is available in 64GB and 256GB models, and sells for a higher price than the 7. The 64GB iPhone 8 is priced at $1,079 upfront, while the 256GB size will you set you back $1,329.

If you’re interested in a bigger screen, the iPhone 8 Plus is similar to the 7 Plus, featuring a slightly improved display, faster processor, and larger storage sizes. To buy outright, you’re looking at $1,229 for the 64GB model, and $1,479 for the 256GB size.
