Optus iPhone Plans & Prices

Advertisement

Optus is one of the biggest telcos in Australia, and therefore has one of the most comprehensive ranges of iPhone plans in Australia. Plans for the latest iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max start at over $90 a month, but there’s a lot of content beneath these digits. Expect extras like included Optus Sport, data bonuses and unlimited national calls & texts. However, how much are you willing to pay to get the latest tech? Find out as we compare Optus iPhone plans.

Optus iPhone XS Plans

  • 64GB ‘Flex’ plans from $93 a month ($45 plan + $48 phone payment)
  • 64GB ‘Plus’ plans from $103 a month ($45 plan + $58 phone payment)
  • 256GB ‘Flex’ plans from $105 a month ($45 plan + $50 phone payment)
  • 256GB ‘Plus’ plans from $115 a month ($45 plan + $70 phone payment)
  • 512GB ‘Flex’ plans from $120 a month ($45 plan + $75 phone payment)
  • 512GB ‘Plus plans from $130 a month ($45 plan + $85 phone payment)
  • Data allowances from 4GB to 200GB

The iPhone XS doesn’t come cheap, but if you’re looking for a long-lasting premium smartphone it’s worth the investment. Optus is one of the three major telcos to offer the new iPhones on plans, and gives buyers a choice of a traditional two-year contract (My Plan Plus), or a two-year lease deal (My Plan Flex).

Prices begin at $93 per month for your phone and plan combined, up to $130 monthly or more. Optus throws in a bunch of extra goodies on its postpaid plans, including data-free sport and international extras – more info on Optus’ iPhone XS plans is available here.

Optus iPhone XS Max Plans

  • 64GB ‘Flex’ plans from $108 a month ($45 plan + $63 phone payment)
  • 64GB ‘Plus’ plans from $118 a month ($45 plan + $73 phone payment)
  • 256GB ‘Flex’ plans from $120 a month ($45 plan + $75 phone payment)
  • 256GB ‘Plus’ plans from $130 a month ($45 plan + $85 phone payment)
  • 512GB ‘Flex’ plans from $135 a month ($45 plan + $90 phone payment)
  • 512GB ‘Plus plans from $143 a month ($45 plan + $98 phone payment)
  • Data allowances from 4GB to 200GB

The XS Max is the bigger, pricier brother to the iPhone XS, and prices begin at $108 monthly on a two-year lease plan. Leasing is $10 cheaper per month, but you do need to hand back the XS Max at the end of your two-year agreement; therefore, it may not be the best option for everyone.

Plans for the XS Max include data of 4GB per month and up, plus streaming extras and overseas calling and roaming. More info on Optus’ iPhone XS Max deals can be found here.

Optus iPhone XR Plans

  • 64GB ‘Flex’ plans from $78 a month ($45 plan + $33 phone payment)
  • 64GB ‘Plus’ plans from $88 a month ($45 plan + $43 phone payment)
  • 128GB ‘Flex’ plans from $83 a month ($45 plan + $38 phone payment)
  • 128GB ‘Plus’ plans from $93 a month ($45 plan + $48 phone payment)
  • 256GB ‘Flex’ plans from $93 a month ($45 plan + $48 phone payment)
  • 256GB ‘Plus plans from $103 a month ($45 plan + $58 phone payment)
  • Data allowances from 4GB to 200GB

The iPhone XR is available to buy from Optus, with prices beginning at $78 monthly to lease the 64GB phone on a 24-month plan. You can also buy the XR on a standard two-year contract, from $88 per month (including both your Optus plan and phone payment). Plans include all the extras you’ll find on Optus’ iPhone XS options, including bonus data, sports and entertainment streaming and international features.

iPhone X

Optus iPhone X Plans

  • 64GB ‘Plus’ plans from $95 a month ($45 plan + $50 phone payment)
  • Data allowances from 4GB to 200GB.

The iPhone X is the crown jewel in the Apple iPhone line-up, however this device has been discontinued by Apple. If you want to pick up this device, Optus only had 64GB models available and no lease plan options.

Optus iPhone 8 Plus Plans

  • 64GB ‘Plus’ plans from $85 a month ($45 plan + $40 phone payment)
  • Data allowances from 4GB to 200GB

For a larger screen size you’ll probably have to go for the 8 Plus, which is 0.3” larger in screen size than the iPhone 8. Luckily, plans start at $85 per month; to get the 200GB plan, you’ll have to spend a minimum of $115 per month (on Optus’ current $105 plan).

As this is an older iPhone device, you won’t be able to pick up this device on a lease plan and there are only 64GB models available.

Optus iPhone 8 Plans

  • 64GB ‘Plus’ plans from $75 a month ($45 plan + $30 phone payment)
  • Data allowances from 4GB to 200GB.

Prices for the iPhone 8 start at $75 and go up to $125 for the top-level plan. However, like the iPhone 8 Plus, you’ll only be able to get the 64GB model and the lease plans are no longer available.

 

Optus iPhone 7 and 7 Plus Plans

  • 32GB model from $55 a month ($45 plan + $10 phone payment)
  • Data allowances from 4GB to 200GB.

As these devices are a few years old, its a harder device to come by. Optus no longer has the 7 Plus available and you’ll only be able to pick up the 32GB version of the 7. The good news is that if you’re happy with the 32GB iPhone 7, you can pick this device up, with a plan, for under $60.

 

Optus iPhone 6S Plans

  • 32GB model from $60 a month ($45 plan + $15 phone payment)
  • Data allowances from 4GB to 100GB.

The iPhone 6S is still a popular phone, even though it’s several generations old. This could be due to the fact it still has a 3.5mm headphone jack – something later series lack. Like plans paired with more expensive iPhone models, the options for the 6s still include extras such as Optus Sport.

200GB plans start at about $105 a month, but ‘Flex’ lease plans are absent from the 6S plan range. Users looking to save a buck or two and retain their headphone jack may like the look of a 6S plan.

Should I get an Optus iPhone plan?

Optus is one of the premier providers of iPhone plans in Australia – and its base prices are some of the cheapest in the country as well. You can pick up the iPhone XS for under $100 if you’re willing to lease, but the higher plan cost (and internal device storage), the more you’ll be paying.

However, for the price you pay, Optus throws in quite a lot, such as Optus Sport, National Geographic, unlimited international calls & texts and other goodies from time to time. Against its main rival Telstra, Optus often works out slightly cheaper for an equivalent plan.

Optus pretty much has it all – from data to streaming, to generous international calls & texts. For a competitive iPhone phone plan, Optus is well worth a look into.
