If you're thinking of getting an iPhone on a plan through Telstra, hold your horses. From March 23, Telstra is running a 7-day flash iPhone sale on its entire range of plans. The deal is simple: sign up between Tuesday the 23rd and Monday the 29th of March and you'll get $100 off the overall cost of whichever model you choose to put on a 24-month Telstra plan.

For example, if you just want the baseline iPhone 12 model, the overall price of the handset will come to $1,248.80, rather than $1,348.80. If you sign up this week, the $100 discount on your iPhone plan will be applied as a once-off $100 credit on your account. How you use that credit is up to you. You can pay a little less on your bill each month, or a lot less in your first month.

That's not the only discounted iPhone, though. Telstra's flash sale on iPhones encompasses every iPhone model offered by Telstra, as far back as the Apple iPhone XS. Here are the iPhone models currently stocked by Telstra:

  • Apple iPhone 12 mini
  • Apple iPhone 12
  • Apple iPhone 12 Pro
  • Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max
  • Apple iPhone SE
  • Apple iPhone 11
  • Apple iPhone XS

Apple is well-known for its aversion to deals and discounts, so all things considered, this is a pretty rare opportunity to grab a discount on an iPhone.

There are also benefits to getting the 5G-compatible iPhone 12 on Telstra considering it has currently has a much larger 5G footprint in Australia than Optus and Vodafone.

If you're looking for a slice of the Apple pie, here's a quick look at the range of iPhone plans. Remember though, the discount won't be applied unless you sign up on Tuesday the 23rd of March so don't jump the gun before then.
