WhistleOut
26 September 2016


With its glossy black finish and storage options up to a huge 256GB, we understand why you want to get your hands on a new iPhone 7. And if you're like two-thirds of Australian phone owners, you probably want to buy your new phone through either Telstra or Optus.

But who has the better deal?

We'll start by taking a look at the plan prices for 32GB iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus handsets, and then dig a bit deeper into some of the bonuses included in these plans, like included music and video streaming offers.
