In many senses, the affordably priced plans remove some of the ‘sting’ of the outright price accompanying the premium phone, potentially dissuading consumers to purchase the phones outright – given an uptick in this trend in recent years – and revert back to post-paid plans.
Australian carriers are yet to reveal pricing plans for the iPhone X.
