The iPhone 12 represents the latest in what Apple has to offer in terms of its iPhone offerings. There isn’t much to distinguish it from previous iPhones, apart maybe from the updated A14 Bionic chip and a slight change to both the rear and front cameras. iPhone 12 price in Australia was high at launch but prices have changed thanks to the availability of refurbished iPhones in Australia. We’ll discuss the iPhone 12 price in Australia and let you know if they’re a good deal for you.
Taking a cue from the myriad of flagships that the Android competitors have been releasing, this time iPhone also decided to go further afield in offering different options for people to choose from. This resulted in four different iPhone 12 models. These are the iPhone 12 Mini, the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Perhaps a testament to the already high standards that Apple had set itself with previous phones, but what does this mean for you in terms of having it available in Australia?
Yes, the iPhone 12 is available in Australia. When it came out, you could get one on pre-order, but as the days have gone by, iPhone 12 in Australia is now available from a variety of outlets, one of them being Apple Australia.
Of course, you can choose to get the phone through a number of carriers and outlets out there. You can order the phone straight from the websites of carriers such as Telstra, Optus and Vodaphone, where you have the option to choose various options and accessories to go with the phone.
The options include the colour of the device. You can choose to have Black, Blue, Green, Red or white as the colour for your phone. For storage options, you can choose to have the iPhone 12 64Gb, the iPhone 12 128 Gb or the iPhone 12 256 Gb variant.
If you had set your sights on the iPhone 12 64gb model, you may have to dig around to get your hands on it. None of Optus, Vodafone or Telstra have it in stock. You also have the opportunity to pick the carrier plan of your choice, right from their websites but buying a phone outright will be a better and cheaper alternative.
The brand new iPhone series also comes with 5G connectivity and are capable of utilising MagSafe accessories for wireless charging and more. All the iPhone 12 models are IP68 water resistance certified. The price of an iPhone 12 256gb starts at $1,399 in Australia.
The iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max have 128Gb 256Gb 512Gb options, and both come with 6Gb of RAM. The iPhone 12 Pro 128gb is priced at $1,479 in Australia.
You can get the phone in a variety of ways. If you are buying refurbished, then the price of the Apple iPhone 12 starts at $929.
If you do choose to go with other variants of the iPhone 12, then you can expect to pay 1,499 for the iPhone 12 Pro and the same for the iPhone 12 Pro Max. If you are the kind of person that will benefit greatly from the cameras at the back of these devices, then you should consider getting them.
As hinted earlier, how much you pay for your smartphone will be dependent on the features you get. When you are buying from a carrier, then the device repayment period and the plan and accessories you bundle the phone with will become a factor.
Who wouldn’t want to experience a good deal? Especially when you know the deal is within reach? While the iPhone prices in Australia can be termed to be fair, that assessment is quickly thrown out the window when you examine what other countries are paying for their iPhones.
And just coming to think of it, Australia has one of the cheapest iPhone prices, however, when you include iPhone 12 plans, then things start to get a little bit skewed towards Australia. With some of the iPhone 12 plans that Optus, Telstra and Vodaphone have on offer, the total cost of owning the iPhone becomes the cheapest in Australia in the long haul.
Most definitely. The first and most obvious has to be with the display size. At least with Apple iPhones, they are not a headache to try to make sense of, say with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S20 series. The iPhone 12 Mini has a 5.4 inch OLED screen. The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 have a 6.1 inch OLED screen, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max bumps this up to a 6.7-inch display.
All models have an OLED super retina XDR display, which is a vast improvement over the IPS LCD display of the iPhone 11. All the new iPhone 12 series are powered by the A14 Bionic chip, one of the most powerful chip in a smartphone, capable of 5G connectivity and Augmented Reality gaming.
In terms of storage capacity, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini start with 64Gb 128Gb 256Gb and have 4Gb of RAM.
The cameras have to be the place where the iPhone models have made a great leap. While the iPhone 12 Mini and the iPhone 12 are still spotting a dual-camera system at the back, the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max have made the switch to a Quad Camera system to match anything the Android mobile rivals can throw at the market.
The dual-camera system of the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Mini is the same one found on the iPhone 11. If you appreciated the camera on the iPhone 11, then you get the same system at the rear and the front. They are capable of recording 4K video, which works great for the storage options of the iPhone 12 Mini 128Gb phone
The iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max see something different at the back. The wide, ultra-wide and telephoto zoom sensors are 12 MP, and they are joined by a depth sensor. Pair this with intuitive camera features such as night mode shooting, especially on the ultra-wide sensor, and you get a beauty of a mobile phone.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max is the 'top-level' iPhone you can buy, it was released on the 13th of November, 2020.
