The best iPhone X plans

Given the $1,579 starting price of the handset, most people are going to want to pick it up as part of a plan. Like the outright prices, the plans are similarly steep, but here's the cheapest plans you can order the iPhone X on right now.

Best budget option – iPhone X 64GB | 2GB data | No lock-in contract | $95.79 pm

If you're looking to enter the iPhone X world but without an iPhone X price, you can score one alongside the 2GB plan from Vodafone for only $95.79 a month.

The best iPhone X plan for each carrier

Best Telstra plan – iPhone X 64GB | 40GB data | Foxtel Now starter pack subscription | $149 pm

If you're looking at going with Telstra, then the included extras and promise of improved coverage is going to cost you a little more than its competitors, so it's best to get the most out of it with a higher-tiered plan. $142 a month will net you 20GB of data, but it's worth doubling that cap by just forking out an extra $7 and going with this plan. Total cost over 24 months is $3,576
