It's on clearance at Target Canberra Centre. I got the last one, not sure if it's nation-wide.
Posting for others to try their luck.
@aja12: And he complains about the performance of the iPhone after deliberating abusing it!
@Croupier: A few drops or throws shouldn't affect the performance of a well designed smart-phone.

A few “throws” shouldn’t affect the performance of a well designed smartphone? Well, there’s a heck of a lot of variables when it comes to throwing something, but if someone is throwing something deliberately to break it, then yeah, it’s going to affect any single phone on the market.
@aja12: The 2018 lineup of rugged smartphones are designed to take a beating. These are good for both work and play.
@Croupier: Well that was after having a new phone that would lose 20% between checking the screen for the time Lol. Horrible phone. Couldnt even transfer files and data easily work stopped buying iPhones because it was a company of mostly technicians and the only people who wanted iPhones were the clueless women who needed help plugging data projectors into laptops
@aja12: Got a better phone and was able to do my job better. So yes
Expressing critical opinions about this manufactured will offend many in our community.
The straight 6s is selling for much more than that.
And USED 6s plus selling for same price and more too
They are MAD!
Its a giveaway at that price.
Thanks op. Got 2 of them.
Which store did you find stock at?
There is one left at Leichhardt Target right now
There's now two on the shelf , must have found another in the store room.
No luck at Chermside or Strathpine.
Edit: Stock that is.
Morayfield has stock available
Sold out in Adelaide Centrepoint and Sefton Park, so stop asking. They have been selling them like mad today. (But I got one!)
just there 1/2 hour ago and picked mine up - there was one left but someone had it on hold…
Anybody know of stock in Vic?
Doncaster is out to save the effort
Officeworks currently have these for $617, so yes it’s a bargain at $399. This is still a very good phone and has 3D Touch screen, 12mp camera. Pretty good specs overall and a lot cheaper than 8 upwards. Speed wise there is not a lot of difference with new models (as viewed on utube reviews).
Totally agree. I sold my 6s plus to the father in law and got myself a x. Have regretted it ever since.
What version of iOS is this running out of the box (for anyone considering one to jailbreak)
Someone could run it through https://sndeep.info without opening the pack… I'll check mine shortly.
Manufacture date was between 26/3/18 and 1/4/18 - so it could be iOS 11.2.6 or 11.3.
Mine came with iOS 11.3
Same here. Wish it's iOS 10. Cheers!
Grabbed the last one from Target Toombul.
Was $699 on the shelf.
THANKS OP GOT ONE …..
The last decent iPhone Apple made
Really was. The future ones are a similar design and only incremental improvements
Other newer iPhones are great too except their prices. So at $399 have to say this has been the most decent deal ever (for an iPhone) as far as I know.
I saw this last week, didn’t think it was cheap for such an old phone so completely dismissed it
Checked our local Target. They sold their last 3 this morning.
Thanks op just bought one at Bondi Junction. No iPhones on show, had to ask. Had them locked Away.
Hi mate. Can you pm or post your receipt so I can try my luck to price match at OW? TIA
No stock in Geelong, VIC
At least one in stock at Wollongong, lady noted that it's locked to Optus through.
Can anybody confirm or deny this? There are conflicting reports
Went to Optus (store) with it and the gentleman said it's unlocked.
Thanks that’s what i thought too. Good to have it confirmed
You're welcome. Should be quick for hunting the gem. Cheers!
@OrangeBJ: I got one earlier today but given I’m with Optus anyway it was inconsequential but still good to know
Did anyone actually try putting in a diff sim?
Yes. Amaysim works just fine.
@OrangeBJ: "All amaysim mobile and data plans are powered by the Optus Mobile Network"
@3zzy: Kogan sim works fine too. Cheers!
@OrangeBJ: Thanks mate! Wanted to be sure.
Camberwell store - no stock
Easamd also out apparently last one sold an hour ago
Thanks OP - went to Target Roselands and though displayed price was $699 scanned at $399.
Thanks OP. I’ve been meaning to upgrade my dad’s 5S (which works perfectly fine. Screen is a bit small for his aging eyes though) for the longest time and this pushed me over the edge. Managed to pick up the last unit at Castle Hill. Great price for a fantastic phone.
I’d love to get this as I’m still on an iPhone 5s like a lot of people’s Dads haha, none in Target Little Bourke St though
Update, got one at Glen Waverley! I think that was the last bit stock check said may be one in Fountain Gate
As of 4:37 today, 5 left at Westfield Parramatta. Be quick!
Just rang and the girl told me they stopped selling Apple products weeks ago.
What's the bet if I show they'll still be in stock
If anyone wants a free genuine Apple blue leather case for their new 6s+ pm me ;) Great condition and Melb based.
It is definitely unlocked, and comes with a $50 Optus SIM.
Is there any way to check stock online? The item number is 61530515.
To check will that mean can use any Optus plan to $50?
E.g. one month at the &50 plan or 1.5 months at 30
You can select one of three $50 plans, epic data, epic value or the long expiry one.
Just bought the last one in Somerville, VIC.
Can anyone who has been lucky enough to get one of these confirm if it works with a Telstra SIM?
I'm using mine with a Telstra sim right now.
Good news, thanks!
Just to confirm - are these devices locked to the Optus network? From the pic, it appears it comes with Optus SIM card
@ilikedeals: Can confirm these units are NOT locked to any carrier.
Purchased one last night and not sim lock using TELSTRA
Unlocked no issues
There are 2 more left at Target, Casey Central, Narre Warren South
Are they all space grey colour only?
I just picked one up from Hobart and believe there are more in stock. More stock in Glenorchy I believe.
For those trying to find one but can't be bothered calling a heap of stores (or like me, you try and call and are continually disconnected), I logged into live chat on the Target website and asked if there were any stores local to me with stock. They advised there was stock, but can't advise how many units.
some one at my local target has put one piece on hold from last 2 days …..i keep calling them but they wouldn't release the hold …….
Just go there and say you are here to pick up the iphone you reserved…
That wouldn’t happen to be in Melbourne would it?
And your name is? Awkward moment…
Lol it’s not mine. I called a store and they said there was one on hold
Grabbed the last one from Castle Plaza, SA.
Just grabbed the last one at Target Carousel, WA.
And apparently staff said that they do have 3 mores in stock.
So be quick guys!
Sorry 3 more or last one? What colour are they if you know? Thanks
Pretty sure they are all space grey 😉
Morley has 1 left also.
Rang my local store and apparently they haven't sold iPhones for years…
Some of the staff didn’t even know. Tell them to check the Optus bay if they have it out of sight which some do
There is two left at Target Bendigo
Seen an influx of these phones on eBay recently lol.
I've seen a few on gumtree. Sealed with Optus sim card. All well above $399 lol
4 left at Morayfield QLD in the Optus Rack at the back of the store
Back far right is entertainment area
It’s the target inside Morayfield Shopping Centre
Definitely jump on it as every store to the coast has zero stock
Did a ring around today for people
Maroochydore - None
Beerwah - None
Morayfield - 4 on shelf as of 11am, staff didn’t really notice until I asked and she dug them out, get on it guys
North Lakes - None
Strathpine - None
Chermside - None
When I spoke with one store she advised target has lost their apple reseller status hence they’re clearing end of line stock, there could be potential savings to be made on previous generation devices like this one from store to store although I believe most of the iPads would of been handed back to apple under this agreement potentially.
Thank you for this comment, I picked up one from Morayfield this afternoon. 1 remaining.
what are people doing for cases / protectors?
As the mods deleted my post for god knows what reasons
Claiming affiliate links to a eBay listing
Spigen armour case
Nuglass screen protector
thanks, was also looking at the spigen hybrid but at $18, i wonder how much different it is from the $2 versions on aliexpress.
I’d stick with the spigen
The junk from aliexpress takes weeks to arrive and doesn’t really offer any thing better
Yeah $2 vs $18 but I’d rather trust my iPhone with spigen then Chinese knockoffs
If you are lucky some Telstra stores might have the Apple leather case for $10
7 plus and 8 plus are the same size. Plenty of cases in the market.
Kmart has them as low as $5, but I bought one on clearance for $3.
oh, so 6+ is the same size as both 7+ and 8+.. interesting. will keep an eye out.
A few local JB Hi-Fi stores I’ve been in around Brisbane recently have had clearance stands with branded 6s+ cases going for $10.
