It's September, and you know what that means. It's iPhone time! After Apple unveiled the devices earlier this week, Australia's carriers have announced their pricing plans for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Sorry y'all, no iPhone X pricing just yet.

Telstra is as usual the most pricey. Their offerings start at AU$89 per month and go up to an eye-watering AU$199. All of Telstra's offerings are below, with the company putting emphasis on its XXL 60GB plans, which are discounted for now.
