Pre-orders for Apple's latest smartphones are open, and potential customers need to decide the device repayment fee for them.

Apple held its September event last week, and launched its now customary four iPhone models.

All of the devices are available for pre-order, with availability set for September 24.

Compared to the pricing of predecessor models, iPhone 13 and 13 mini users will notice a storage bump for each tier, while Max users will see the addition of a 1TB tier.

For Australians, Apple will charge AU$1,350 for a 128GB iPhone 13, AU$1,520 for 256GB of storage, and AU$1,870 for the 512GB iPhone 13 model. Fans of smaller devices will pay AU$1,200 for the 128GB iPhone 13 mini, AU$1,370 for the 256GB option, and AU$1,720 for the 512GB version.

With the Pro lineup, Apple charges AU$1,700 for the 128GB iPhone 13 Pro, AU$1,870 for 256GB of storage, breaking the AU$2,000 mark is the 512GB option at AU$2,220, and the 1TB model costs a hefty AU$2,570.

At the highest tier, the 128GB iPhone 13 Pro Max will cost AU$1,850, 256GB of storage sits at AU$2,020, the 512GB model costs AU$2,370, and the 1TB option is AU$2,720.

More or less like every other phone on the market, the iPhone lineup supports 5G, but they will only support millimetre-wave 5G in the United States. Australians are once again stuck on sub-6GHz 5G.

Telco pricing

Since subsidised plans were consigned to history, Australian telcos have typically taken Apple's price, and divided it by 12, 24, or 36 months.

However, unlike standard mathematics, telco mathematics does not make all divisions the same. Generally, the prices are within a few cents of each other, depending on model, but in some cases, the difference can be measured in dollar terms. Telstra also explicitly offers outright purchases on its site at the same pricing as Apple. 

The following tables break it down, with monthly plan fees needing to be added on top of the device repayment fee.
