It's the cheapest price I have seen yet. Maybe I'm wrong but I can't find cheaper than that.
Wats the rpp? 1849??
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't it better to get 5% vouchers and just buy at JB or good guys?
I'm sorry. I don't know about that.
@guesswhat: Well through various services you can buy gift cards at 5% off, like Good Guys, JbHifi etc etc. I assumed nearly every OZB used these when buying common tech from these stores. If you are with AGL, Youi, Suncorp etc etc
You would save an extra $43 ontop of your savings.
@onlinepred: Thanks for letting me know. :). It's a good offer then.
Or harvey norman though they dont have the iphone in sale.
I did get to price match Costco Sony X9000H with Sony Store, so potentially you can use this to price match before using discount gift card with JB Hi-Fi for further saving.
This or macbook?
i was looking at 2.7K for a 13 inch mac book pro (with 512 SDD / 16g RAM / education software bundle) - I am just getting into the apple space and finding it rather painful!
- even though this is cheaper - there is surely no way I could convince myself to spend this much on a phone (even as a business expense)
A 13' MBP feels like far better value to me.
What does this do that an iPhone SE doesn't?
- Larger screen
- Faster (but how much in real world usage?)
- Way better camera, but unless your use case is semi-pro shooting raw on iPhone and editing in post via lightroom. The average user is likely just uploading it to Facebook or insta to have the quality compressed out of it.
- No touch-ID (which is a deal breaker for me)
If Touch ID is a dealbreaker for you, do you plan on getting any iPhone after the SE? with the mini, I imagine they’ll kill they that completely now, right? Maybe it’s not cost effective to do so, I am just curious.
@BigBrickBoy: I'm hoping that masks and their impacts on face id will push apple to find a way to include it. And I think that a cheaper SE style phone on a slower update cycle will always be part of the range.
Get the Air M1 8/256 or 16/512 or 1tb. The 13 pro isn’t long for this world and touchbar sucks
Which one do you use more?
I was tossing between the max or MacBook but I use my phone way more than my laptop so ended up buying the phone
iPhone 12 Pro Max 256GB is also $1949.99
Yeah. Costco is giving the best price so far.
Which was $1816 last week https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/595532. But this should probably have more stock than Mobileciti did
That one was a very good deal. If only I didn't have the 128GB version already, I would have bought right away.
iPhone 12 Pro Max 256GB Gold - $1824.12 Delivered
Only 1 left.

before paying up consider if it's worth paying the extra for Pro over standard 12 review
Although I agree with you, keep in mind this is the pro max not the pro which is a different phone entirely
agree, I noticed that after I posted lol, either way something to consider for others
Speaking from family/friends feedback regarding 12, some experienced heating/charging and sudden reboot issues. Changed over to the Pro and never had any issues.
Also Costco don’t accept Amex for anyone wondering.
I have had a 12 since release and have none of those issues.
Funnily enough, Apple upgraded them to the Pro with a good discount for the trouble no questions asked.
But yeah, we’ve had no issues.
No point getting the pro. It’s like the middle child howveer the pro MAX is a different story.
How so? I would personally go for the Pro for the smaller form factor. Having had a 7 Plus for 4 years I want less bulk in my pocket, and the 12 Pro would give me more screen size for a smaller overall size. I know that anything modern would be big improvement over what I’ve got now, but size is definitely the driving factor for me.
If u r used to smaller phones than yeh go for the pro but there are people out there prefer bigger screens and battery size hence the Max.
@sauce2k: I thought I’d hate the MAX as I’ve never been happy with the Note series but i was wrong. I like the big screen and it’s happy enough in my jeans pocket! I was going to get the MINI but glad I didn’t as 2 days, lots of use and still got juice until bedtime….
yeah but if you look into it you don't get bigger screen size than your 7 plus
@DisabledUser341338: When doing a comparison on the Apple web site it says the 12 Pro has a 6.1” screen whereas the 7 Plus is only 5.5”. You’re not thinking of the 12 Mini are you?
I agree 12 or pro max is better value.
IMO the Pro Max makes more sense - better camera, sensor stabilisation, bigger battery, bigger screen for a small premium over the pro. If you're spending $1700 on a Pro, it makes sense to pay another $100-$150 and get the pro max (128gb models)
Stop It. Get Some Help.
You can actually get this for the same price at JB HiFi. When I bought my iPhone 12 Pro Max 128GB, I asked the staff if they price match with Costco (I know they don't but asked anyway), staff said they don't. But then I asked what's the best price they can do and then they said $1799. Turns out 99c cheaper than Costco. LOL
Whenever I’ve asked for deals in the past at Melbourne CBD stores, I was pretty much laughed at…must be really dependent on the salesperson.
As a iPhoneXS owner of many of their products I think this is a shit phone and a super inflated price!
Galaxy A41 5G $400 and A71 5G $639-699 and either as good for a fraction of the price! Seriously, $1800 for a phone with a shelf life of 1 year, NUTS!
Owner of XS..lol
One year?! What are you doing to your phones…?
The XS is a fine phone, aside from battery life compared to the Max. Aside from that, it’s awesome and I’m keeping mine as a backup
@guesswhat Get OW to price beat - https://www.apple.com/au-hed/shop/buy-iphone/iphone-12-pro/6... and it will come to $1756.55
Similar to this deal: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/596349
That's amazing. I'm looking to get one.
I think OW will know that is their education price and refuse to beat it?
Optus Price Match if you're with them?
Bought one recently from the Apple store on George street Sydney and was surprised to find out Apple will also price match.
They price match Costco?
Do your homework in advance. Go to JB HiFi ask any associate what's there best price. They usually would offer you something interesting.
they usually would and most definitely would do their best to offer some discount off rrp for expensive items. They have targets to meet, sometimes as high as 10k per shift and 1 sale of the iPhone is nearly 20% of that target
I know this is the best phone in the market but hate that it will be outdated when they release next one later this year. $1800 is a bit too much considering that.
Bro in law just got this iPhone. Already complained about battery life
Compared to what though? Not other iPhones, except maybe the 11 Pro Max.
Battery life is really good for me. Just make sure not to use 5G.
I get a new Iphone every second model previous model to this I believe the 12 is just an 11S and this year’s will be a major upgrade.
That’s been the pattern to me.
Please correct me from wrong
Flagship phones in general are becoming ridiculously expensive in the last few years and superseded within a year.
Can't see how mobile tech has plateaued, yet prices keep going up? is the consumer just fueling this by buying anyways?
who pays nearly 2K for the phone?? R U OK?
I’m not one of them, but obviously plenty of people buy these flagship phones at flagship prices.
can OW pricematch costco?
Yes and Apple also, as mentioned by other users.
Office Works will not match or beat Costco (reason they state is because you pay membership)
Tried a 3 times calling them and got the same response all 3 times.
Having membership is not part of the PBG exclusion.
Can OW refuse on price match even if it is covered under its stated PBG on their website.
"What items does the 5% reduction apply to?
Our guarantee applies to all identical products and services that are:
Stocked at Officeworks
In stock at our competitor; and
Not excluded from the PBG (see below)."
Is the warranty for a year or two?
1 year from Apple and extra year from ACL. So 2 years in total from Apple.
Caution when buying. Dropped frames, exposure judder with video and dropped frames when playing games. Tested along my z fold 2 and it’s bad. Selling pro max shortly
Used it for over a week and it already got many scratches on screen , no keys in pocket or anything. Apple claims it’s toughest glass on any smartphone? How there are many scratches on screen just by using it daily?
I’ve used samsung over years and no scratch on there.
