Smart postpaid plans for iPhone 12

Signature 4G and 5G plans are available for Apple’s latest flagship

Published

on

The latest iPhones have finally arrived in the Philippines. Now, you can pre-order the iPhone 12 series in the country through authorized resellers and Apple’s online store. Alternatively, you can avail of Apple’s latest and greatest through Smart, which offers postpaid plans for all the iPhone 12 variants.

For iPhone 12, Smart has broken down its Signature plan into two: 4G and 5G plans. The regular 4G plan is the more flexible of the two, starting at Plan S and maxing out at Plan XL. Meanwhile, the 5G plan starts at Plan L before maxing out at Plan XL.

Customers also have two options for each Signature plan. They may either avail of the one-time cashout option or go for the monthly installment option which adds an additional fee on top of their monthly plan balance. For this plan comparison, we would only compare the one-time cashout option.

It is also worth noting that all Signature plans now come with unlimited texts and calls to any network. Therefore, the primary deciding factor is the data allocation that comes with each plan tier.

So without further ado, here are the iPhone 12 Signature plans for each variant:
