Optus iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro & iPhone 11 Pro Max – Plans and Prices

Advertisement

After the initial announcement in September 2019, the iPhone 11 series took inspiration from the 2018 devices with a simple offering of three devices — the iPhone 11, which is the base model, the more premium iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max, which is the largest device out of the three. The iPhone 11 range was officially released in 20 September, 2019.

Of course, all of these devices come with a hefty price tag if you’re looking to buy your device outright, with prices ranging from $1,199 AUD to $2,499 AUD. Optus has all three devices available to buy and bundle with a phone plan, which you could find to be a more affordable option as it spreads your device payments over 12, 24 or 36 months. The only catch is you’ll be locked into Optus for the duration of your phone payment plan, unless you pay off the remainder of your device.

What will you get on a phone plan from Optus? Let’s take a look at what you can expect if you choose to buy the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max on an Optus plan.

Optus iPhone plans

Optus offers its device and plans separately so you can choose between a 12, 24 or 36-month payment period for your device and then bundle with a postpaid plan. If you choose to pay your device off over 12 months, your monthly device payment will be quite expensive, and that’s even before adding on a postpaid plan. Paying off your device over 24 or 36 months will generally be a cheaper monthly price, but you will pay the save price overall as on the 12-month option. While the 36 month payment period offers the cheapest monthly device price, you’ll be locked in for a lot longer, so keep this in mind when comparing iPhone plans and prices.

Lets take a look at how much it will cost you to buy the iPhone 11 series on a phone plan from Optus.

The more basic device in the range, the iPhone 11 still packs a punch when it comes to features and inclusions. The phone display is 6.1 inches and comes in a range of six colours including White, Black, Yellow, Green, Purple and (PRODUCT) Red. You’ll also have three storage sizes to choose from — 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

Optus postpaid plan inclusions and prices

Optus, like Telstra and Vodafone, separates the phone payments from the plan prices. Once you’ve selected your device and storage size, simply choose between one of the four postpaid phone plans. Prices for the plans start at $39 per month with 10GB of data and go up to $79 per month with 120GB of data. The more expensive plans will also include some international call and roaming inclusions, while the cheapest plan doesn’t include access to Optus Sport which you’ll get on the $49, $59 and $79 plans. You also have the choice to build your own postpaid plan, so you can choose heaps of data and no international inclusions, or maybe less data and some international call inclusions — the choice is yours. Optus is the only telco currently offering this option to build your own postpaid plan.

Here’s a snapshot of Optus’ postpaid phone plans to give you an idea of which plan price and inclusions could be the right option for you (these prices do not include device payments).

Plan Price Inclusions
$39 Small Choice Plan $39 Unlimited standard national calls and texts, 10GB data
$49 Medium Choice Plan $49 Unlimited standard national calls and texts, 60GB data
$59 Large Choice Plan $59 Unlimited standard national calls and texts, 100GB data
$79 Extra Large Choice Plan $79 Unlimited standard national calls and texts, 120GB data
