Vodafone iPhone 12 & iPhone 12 Pro: Plans & Prices

Advertisement

Apple enthusiasts have waited a while for this moment and finally, the first ever 5G iPhones are here. While Apple has been behind the competition when it comes to 5G phones, for many, the wait may have been worth it. There are plenty of great features and big upgrades in the iPhone 12 range, with four devices to pick from.

Unlike other manufacturers, Apple has chosen to make all four of the iPhone 12 series phones 5G-compatible. All devices will be available to pick up on a phone plan from Vodafone, over your choice of 12, 24 or 36-month payment periods. Vodafone has both the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro 5G phones available to buy on postpaid plans, and you can order either phone online or pick up in any Vodafone store. The iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro will also be available to pre-order from November 7, 2020.

If you want to pick up the iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro on a plan, let’s take a look at what you can expect from a 5G iPhone plan with Vodafone.

The new flagship Apple device, the iPhone 12, comes with plenty of great features and specs, and of course, 5G compatibility. You’ll enjoy a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display, a powerful A14 Bionic Chip, MagSafe and QI wireless charging, plus up to 17 hours of video playback. As for the cameras, you’ll get a 12MP front-facing TrueDepth camera and Dual 12-megapixel wide angle and ultra wide cameras with 2x optical zoom. There are five colours to choose from — Black, White, Blue, Green, (PRODUCT) Red, and it’s available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage sizes.

You can pick up your device on 12, 24 or 36-month payment periods from Vodafone. Simply bundle with your choice of postpaid phone plan. Vodafone’s plan prices start at $40 with 10GB of data (and unlimited data at the capped-speed of 2Mbps), and go up to $120 with 150GB of data (and unlimited data at the capped-speed of 25Mbps). While postpaid plans are month-to-month, cancelling your Vodafone service altogether requires you to pay off the remainder of your handset costs.

Vodafone 5G Mobile Network

Out of the big three telcos (including Telstra and Optus), Vodafone is further behind when it comes to 5G mobile network development. The telco officially launched its 5G network earlier in 2020, but in a limited number of locations. Currently it’s difficult to find Vodafone 5G network coverage on the provider’s website, but the telco does declare that 5G is coming from ‘mid-2020’, so if you’re looking to use your 5G iPhone with Vodafone’s 5G mobile network, you might have to wait a little longer for more widespread coverage. However, the telco is planning to expand its network and has examples of proposed development areas available for you to look at online.

At this point, Vodafone is not charging any extra for 5G network access, and there has been no word as to whether this is something the telco plans to do in the future.

Vodafone postpaid plan inclusions and prices

Vodafone separates its postpaid plans from the device payments, which are available over 12, 24 or 36-month payment periods. Vodafone’s postpaid plans are month-to-month, and while you can switch between plans, cancelling altogether will require you to pay off the remainder of your device. As for plan features, Vodafone, like Telstra, offers unlimited data on all postpaid plans, although this ‘unlimited’ data is at capped speeds. More recently, Vodafone changed the way it offers unlimited data, with these capped data speeds varying from plan to plan.

The $40 Lite plan includes 10GB of fast-speed data and the $45 Lite+ plan includes 30GB of fast-speed data, while both plans include 2Mbps unlimited capped-speed data. The $55 Super plan includes 60GB of fast data, while the $65 Super+ plan has 100GB of fast-speed data, with both plans also including 10Mbps capped-speed data. The $120 Ultra plan includes a generous 150GB of fast-speed data with 25Mbps capped-speed data. All plans include unlimited standard national calls and SMS, with some amount of international call inclusions available on all plans except the $40 plan.

Here’s a quick look at Vodafone’s postpaid phone plans to help you decide which plan price and inclusions could be the best option for you (these prices do not include device payments).

Plan Price Inclusions
$40 Lite Plan $40 Unlimited standard national calls and texts, 10GB max speed data/ unlimited 2Mbps data
$45 Lite+ Plan $45 Unlimited standard national calls and texts, 30GB max speed data/ unlimited 2Mbps data
$55 Super Plan $55 Unlimited standard national calls and texts, 60GB max speed data/ unlimited 10Mbps data
