Running a deal on the iPhone 12 seems to be a recurring trend with telcos at the moment. A few weeks back we reported on Telstra offering a discount on both the standard iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Mini. Now it looks like Optus is throwing its hat into the ring, as it’s currently offering a $100 discount on both the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12.

This discount is only available when you pair an iPhone 12 handset with one of Optus’ mobile plans. It’s also a flash sale, so it’s only available until the end of April 29.

However, the recently announced purple variant of the iPhone 12 is included in this sale. So if you’ve been waiting to upgrade to an iPhone 12, and you’re a big Prince fan, now’s your time to stand underneath the purple rain.

iPhone 12 specs

When compared to one another, the standard iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Mini are very similar. The only major difference is that the Mini, as its name suggests, is a much smaller phone. This size decrease means the Mini has a smaller display – 5.4″ compared to the standard iPhone 12’s 6.1″ – and a smaller battery size – 2,227 mAh compared to the standard iPhone 12’s 2,815 mAh.

Here’s a table detailing the specs for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini:
