Best price for iPhone 11 in Australia
Apple’s iPhone 12 lineup may be just around the corner, but the iPhone 11 is still going strong. A year on, it still has one of the best cameras we’ve seen on a smartphone, a beautiful screen, and a range of chic colours to choose from. And, by waiting a bit longer to get your hands on one, you’re going to see some decent savings.
Cheap iPhone 11 outright deals
Not keen on being locked down by a telco? While the big three are now offering contract-free plans, there’s still the monthly device bill to contend with. If you’re more of a ‘pay now, not later’ kind of buyer, you can’t go wrong nabbing your new iPhone 11 outright.
You can generally still buy your device outright from the big three, but for the best deal, we recommend checking out Kogan, JB Hi-Fi, Bing Lee and The Good Guys.

Once you’ve got your shiny new toy, you’ll need a SIM-only postpaid or prepaid plan to go along with it. Thankfully, once you remove the upfront handset cost, the monthly bills start looking a whole lot smaller. Check out our picks for the best value SIM-only plans below.
Cheap iPhone 11 plans
Apple is notoriously selective about its carriers, and as such, you’ll only find it available in a plan through the big three – Optus, Vodafone and Telstra.
In terms of affordability, the Optus $39 Choice Plan offers the best value, with 10GB in data, unlimited talk and text, data sharing across eligible plans on your account, unlimited standard international talk and text and even an Optus Sport subscription.
Vodafone’s $40 Red Plus Plan is a close second, offering unlimited talk and text and the same 10GB in data at max speeds, after which you can keep using data at up to 1.5Mbps at no extra cost. It’s a great option if you want to avoid bill shock altogether, however only the 64GB and 128GB models are available.
If you’re after Telstra’s competitive coverage, be warned – it doesn’t come cheap. Telstra has no 36-month device payment options, meaning its least expensive option is the $55 Small Mobile Plan, which includes a generous 40GB data along with data-free streaming of AFL, AFLW, NRL, Netball and A-League. Adding in the device costs, that brings it up over the $100 per month mark.
The most affordable of the bunch, the iPhone 11 64GB starts from around $33.30 per month in interest-free device payments over a 36-month period or $49.95 per month over 24 months. The downside? With just 64GB to play with, you may end up paying extra for an iCloud subscription to boost your storage
If 64GB doesn’t quite cut it, the 128GB model is just slightly more expensive at $35.52 per month over 36 months in interest-free device payments, or $53.29 over 24 months. In terms of the peace of mind afforded by double the storage (i.e. no more annoying warnings!), we reckon it’s well worth the extra bit of pocket change.
For content creators, mobile gamers and any smartphone power users, the iPhone 11 256GB is your best bet – but it’ll cost you. As expected, it’s the most expensive of the bunch with 36-month device repayments starting at $40.24 and 24-month repayments from $60.36 per month.
Cheap iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max plans
Think the iPhone 11 is too big? Not big enough? Not enough cameras? Whatever your desired upgrade, the 11 Pro and Pro Max probably have it covered.
iPhone 11 Pro
Between the 11 Pro and Pro Max, we reckon it’s hard to go past the 11 Pro. It’s got a slightly smaller screen and lighter body, which, given the recent trend towards larger and larger screens, is actually quite refreshing. But if you’re worried that smaller means worse, it’s actually the opposite – the iPhone 11 Pro has a higher resolution OLED screen compared to the 11’s larger LCD. Budding photographers will also enjoy the addition of a third ultra wide-angle camera, which captures stunning zoomed-in snaps.
iPhone 11 Pro Max
Prefer a bigger playground? If you’ve got a sizable budget (not to mention sizable hands) the Pro Max wins out with a gorgeous 6.5-inch OLED display, the same unbeatable camera as the Pro and the best battery life of the bunch.
