Default Phones / phone plans for teenagers

So my older two boys are heading off to high school this fall, COVID-19 permitting. Seems reasonable to equip them with cell phones, and I'm thinking our current provider, Ting, is probably not the best option. So throwing it out there R3D ... best phones and cell plans for teenagers?

Criteria:

Plan - budget oriented. They can and should be using wifi as much as possible. Current provider, Ting, uses "buckets" where you pay what you use. That seems reasonable for me, but I get that kids will probably use a lot more data than I do. So maybe there is a budget unlimited plan out there, that maybe just throttles or something when they pass a certain threshold? Target $30/mo per kid.

Phone - I'm big brother daddy. Yeah, that means I want some level of controls / filtering. My oldest has an Android phone, so I use Google's Family Link app to keep my nose in his business. I've heard iPhone has better parental controls, but I'm totally unfamiliar with that. Target couple hundred per phone. They can pay the difference if they want something better / newer.
