How much will the iPhone 15 cost on a plan?
It's safe to say that Telstra, Vodafone and Optus will all range the iPhone 15 in some capacity. The iPhone is still extremely popular amongst Aussies, accounting for almost half the mobile market in the first quarter of 2023 according to IDC.
Here's a quick summary of what to expect from each of Australia's big three mobile providers when it comes to iPhone plans.
Vodafone iPhone 15 plans
If you want to pick up the iPhone 15 for as little as you can get away with, you're probably looking to do so via Vodafone. While this provider can't match Telstra or Optus when it comes to coverage, it does come in at a much cheaper starting price.
On top of any standard postpaid plan inclusions, Vodafone customers also get the excess-charge free data, 5G connectivity wherever they can get it plus $5 per day roaming whenever you need it.

Optus iPhone 15 plans
If you're after better coverage than Vodafone can vouch offer but don't want to deal with the higher prices that come with Telstra, then Optus might be the next best bet when it comes to iPhone 15 plans.
Assuming that this year's lineup matches that of last year's, the iPhone 15 will be available on either 12, 24 or 36 month plan through Optus. Each eligible Optus postpaid plan will come with excess-charge free data, a discounted rate on Optus Sport and the ability to save on your monthly subscriptions via SubHub.

Telstra iPhone 15 plans
Telstra's mobile plans are the most expensive of the big three, so it's no surprise that it'll probably end up being the most expensive option for those looking to buy the iPhone 15 on a postpaid plan.
Those who sign up for a iPhone 15 plan with Telstra should expect to be able to pay off their device over a 12, 24 or 36-month period and access to excess-charge free data for the lifetime of their plan.
For a snapshot of your options, check out the round-up of Telstra mobile plans (paired with this year's iPhone 15) below. We don't expect pricing to differ too greatly between this and last year's device, so expect final pricing to end up fairly similar.
