Picking the best iPhone deal can be tricky. With several different iPhone models to choose from and lots of different places to buy them, where do you even start?
Do you pick a cheap monthly bill, an iPhone plan with no upfront cost, or an iPhone with unlimited data? Well, broadbandchoices is here to help. Here’s our guide to getting yourself a new iPhone deal this month.
Apple have made some smart decisions for the XR. It delivers a superb level of performance and includes top of the range specs, which means you get most of the same benefits as the company's best phones. Through a few astute design compromises - such as a simplified camera and lower-tech touch controls - costs are more manageable, coming in cheaper than both the flagship iPhone XS and XS Max models.
Including face-recognition software, a choice of three storage options (64GB, 128GB and 256GB), and Apple’s A12 Bionic Chip (the same as the iPhone XS and XS), the XR has a huge amount to admire.
With its powerful processor, excellent sound quality and high-tech cameras, the iPhone XS made significant improvements to the impressive iPhone X.
Thanks mainly to Apple’s new A12 Bionic chip, the iPhone XS is a lot faster and a lot more powerful than previous iPhone generations. Its 5.8in OLED display offers super-sharp displays, with ultra-high pixel density, making for a super clear picture, and stunning colour.
Boasting an impressive dual camera in the back, with a new, super-powerful 7MP sensor on the front, the XS enables you to take photos a pro would be proud of; as well as providing a whopping 512GB worth of storage, enough for two hundred thousand photos! It also comes in a larger, 6.5in model - the iPhone XS Max, which is perfect for anyone partial to a big screen.
With a huge, 5.8-inch screen that reaches right to the edges of the phone, Apple's special anniversary edition flagship is quite something to look at, and there's a lot going on under the hood as well. An A11 Bionic processor means it's fast and powerful, and you'll get a frankly amazing dual-lens camera on the back too. And on the front, there are facial recognition sensors so you can use Face ID.
Deal-wise, you'll want a plan with plenty of data - perhaps even an unlimited data plan - so you don't have to hold back on using this excellent phone. It’s not the cheapest iPhone, but don’t worry, there are ways to get it at a lower price, such as by getting a refurbished model, going through a reseller, or simply by choosing a plan on a budget network.
iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
Released in September 2017, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were the first iPhones to come with wireless charging. Equipped with powerful A11 Bionic chips, you can even get them both with 256GB internal memory - more than enough room for all your apps and files.
If you're looking at buying the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus then we recommend that you go for a plan that allows you to get the most out of the handset. We recommend a large data allowance so you can watch lots of movies and videos - and you can get that for cheaper than you would with an iPhone X.
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
Want top iPhone specs at a slightly lower price? Have a look at the previous generation of Apple's phones - the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. They haven't got wireless charging, but what they do have are HD screens, speedy processors, and the same 12MP cameras. They're water-resistant too, a feature you won't get with any iPhones older than this.
iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus
Despite being more than a few generations old now, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are still decent handsets. With a slick design and HD displays, you’ll get something good no matter which size you choose. A few features aren’t quite as high-powered as later models - the rear camera has just an 8MP lens, and the battery is smaller, for instance - but the iPhone 6 still runs super smoothly.
The brilliant thing about the iPhone SE is that it's essentially got the guts and specs of an iPhone 6 in the body of a 5 - and an old-style, smaller phone means it's a lot cheaper than a flagship. It's got Apple Pay, a 12MP camera, and decent battery life, all in the nice four-inch frame.
The best deal on an iPhone SE is one that keeps costs down but gives you enough allowance to put those specs to work. The best part is, it’s a cheaper phone, so you can afford to get a higher allowance for a low price.
And failing that, you may even decide to buy an iPhone outright and plump for a SIM-only deal.
