Best iPhone Deals: Bargain pay monthly contracts on iPhones in October 2017

Want a shiny new iPhone? Here, we’ve rounded up the best iPhone deals this month to put a lovely Apple phone in your hand for the best price going.

Whether you already use an iPhone or you’re considering making the leap from Android, you might be struggling to settle on a contract. That’s understandable; Apple has a wonderfully diverse lineup of iPhones on the market right now, including the brand new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. You’re more spoiled for choice than ever.

Here are three of the best iPhone deals this month to whet your appetite for an upgrade:

What’s more, Apple’s feature-packed 10th anniversary phone, the iPhone X, is launching soon. If you’re not fussed on waiting to snap up the snazzy £1000 iPhone (and you’re not hot on that missing Home button), you can do worse than grabbing an older iPhone model as prices are bound to drop once there’s a new iPhone in town.

So, read on to see the best iPhone deals of the month on what we think are the most covetable Apple phones available.

Best iPhone 8 deals

The freshly launched iPhone 8 retains the same IPS screen found on older iPhones, but carries Apple’s new A11 Bionic processor under the hood, which Apple says comes with a host of performance benefits. The brand new iOS 11 finds its first new home in the iPhone 8, too. There’s a 12-megapixel primary camera with lots of exciting updates to the camera app and photos, along with a host of other app improvements and a brand new set of vocal chords for Siri.

iPhone 8 64GB (Space Grey) | £150 upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 10GB data | £39 per month This O2 deal plonks a hearty 10GB of data in your pocket for what we think is the most reasonable price around right now. It’s definitely worth snapping up a deal like this with a larger upfront sum; it makes the monthly payments and overall costs much cheaper in the long-run.

Best iPhone 8 Plus deals

The bumper-sized member of Apple’s brand new 2017 smartphone trio is the iPhone 8 plus, which exhibits pretty much the same features as the iPhone 8, except you’ve got 5.5 inches of screen to gaze at instead of the iPhone 8’s 4.7 inches. Apple’s new phablet is available in two storage options: a 64GB version costing £799, and a capacious 246GB version up for an eye-watering £949 off-contract.

iPhone 8 Plus 64GB (Space Grey) | £109 upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 16GB data | £47.99 per month This EE deal lavishes you with a generous 16GB data allowance for monthly payments that won’t make you spit out your tea in horror. That upfront cost looks a little unfriendly, but it does help keep the overall cost much lower than you’d expect for a 16GB package.

  • Total cost over 24 months: £1260.76

iPhone 8 Plus 64GB (Gold) | £125 upfront | Unlimited  calls texts | 26GB data | £48 per month If you’re greedy for lots of data, try this Vodafone deal for size. You get 26GB to play with on the glamorous gold version of the iPhone 8 Plus. It’s impressive that the monthly payments manage to straddle the nicer side of £50.

iPhone 8 Plus 256GB (Space Grey) | £99 upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 30GB data | £62 per month Considering this Three deal practically drowns you in data, it’s impressive that those monthly payments aren’t tipping the £70 mark. Grab this jumbo deal if you’re ready to throw some serious cash at the iPhone 8 Plus and its premium features.

Best iPhone 7 deals

Since Apple’s announced its 2017 triplets, the iPhone 7 has dropped in price by £50, meaning the deals below are the cheapest we’ve ever seen. So what’s to love? Well, the iPhone 7 was the first iPhone to get water resistance, and it also debuted a roomy starting storage of 32GB, so it’s a revolutionary little handset – even if it doesn’t get the full five-star rating from us. Battery life could be a little better. We do love its camera, though, which came with some great upgrades that really enhance your snaps.

iPhone 7 32GB (Jet Black) | £125 upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 5GB data | £27.99 per month This great value EE deal offers an incredibly affordable monthly payment plan for a nice mid-level lump of 4G.  It’s more pricey upfront, but it’s a brilliant option if you’re on a small budget. Get £10 off the upfront cost at the checkout with voucher code TRUSTED10.

iPhone 7 32GB (Jet Black) | Free upfront | Unlimited calls texts | Unlimited data | £47 per month This Three deal is by far the best iPhone 7 pick this month for people who want to luxuriate in lots of lovely 4G. You get unlimited data for endless streaming, browsing and internet usage on the go, plus the handset comes free.

iPhone 7 32GB (Jet Black)  | Free upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 15GB data | £37.99 per month Want the iPhone 7 without having to cough up before it’s in your pocket? This EE contract is the best free phone deal we spotted this month that gives you the handset for zilch upfront. It comes with tons of data, too.

Best iPhone 7 Plus deals

The iPhone 7 Plus is another handset that’s cashing in on the arrival of the new 2017 Apple phones; it’s reduced in price by £50. We liked this phablet much more than its flagship counterpart when we reviewed it. That’s thanks to its speedy performance, effective water resistance, loud speakers, great cameras, plus a host of clever features that make using it a dream. What’s more, its battery life is way better.

iPhone 7 Plus 32GB (Jet Black) | £89.99 upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 16GB data | £47.99 per month This EE deal offers a generous portion of data to keep you online while you’re out and about. The monthly payments are affordable for this level of data thanks to an upfront lump sum of £150, which is totally manageable if you’ve planned in advance to grab Apple’s luxury phablet.

  • Total cost over 24 months: £1241.75

iPhone 7 Plus 32GB (Jet Black) | £129.99 upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 26GB data | £48 per month If you’re prone to browsing, streaming and downloading more than the average person when you stray from Wi-Fi, then here’s the iPhone 7 Plus deal for you. It’s the most affordable deal we spotted this month for big data on the iPhone 7 Plus, and comes courtesy of Vodafone.

Best iPhone SE deals

Apple has reduced the price of the iPhone SE by a tenner since launching its 2017 lineup, meaning you can now bag it for just £349. As a result, there are some scandalously cheap iPhone SE deals to be had at the moment. The phone might have been overtaken by a number of models since launching in 2016, but its compact design, great camera and solid battery life never fail to disappoint. It’s a fast performer, too.

iPhone SE 128GB (Rose gold) | Free upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 3GB data | £27 per month We love this EE deal because you get the fancy Rose Gold iPhone SE, and it’s also the same price as the same deal on the 32GB version of the phone – bargain! This is a brilliantly cheap deal if you’re on a budget and spend most of your time using Wi-Fi anyway.

  • Total cost over 24 months: £648

iPhone SE 32GB (Space Grey) | Free upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 16GB data | £36 per month We think this Vodafone deal offers the best value for money if you’re hankering after more data on the iPhone SE. It’s not the heftiest data allowance you could ask for, but you can’t argue with £36 a month with zero upfront costs.

Best iPhone 6S deals

The iPhone 6S enjoyed the biggest price drop among iPhones this year, making it available for £449 since the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X strutted onto the scene. Launched back in 2015, it’s tempting to look at it as a relic from the past, but we still think it’s well worth a look if your budget is small. We like its compact feel, fast performance and tactile design. However, one area where its age shows is its battery life; it’s not one for the power users.

iPhone 6S 32GB (Space Grey) | £75 upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 2GB data | £22.99 per month EE’s 2GB data deal is one of the best iPhone 6S packages we spotted this month, requesting a little more upfront in exchange for ridiculously cheap monthly payments. Save £10 at the checkout with voucher code TRUSTED10.

  • Total cost over 24 months: £626.76

iPhone 6S 32GB (Gold) | £19.99 upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 30GB data | £29 per month If you’re ready to face your downloading habits and grab a data-heavy contract that’s a little more forgiving, then this Three deal is the one for you. With only a small upfront cost and modest monthly payments, it’s definitely the most affordable 6S deal for on-the-go data guzzlers.

  • Total cost over 24 months: £715.99

iPhone 6S 128GB (Space Grey) | Free upfront | Unlimited calls texts | 15GB data | £37.99 per month The best deal around this month that puts a free iPhone 6S in your hand is this one with EE. You get all the calls and texts you ever need, a sizeable wad of data and comparatively low monthly costs, all without having to dig deep into your wallet at the checkout. And on the 128GB handset, too!

Best iPhone X deals

The iPhone X marks the tenth anniversary of the iPhone, and Apple has pulled out all the stops to celebrate. The glass-clad iPhone X has a stunning screen that stretches right to the edges, shrinking down the bezel and ditching the Home button to make way for some clever front-facing features. They include face ID, which scans your face to authorise iTunes purchases and unlock the phone.

It launches on November 3, with pre-orders officially opening on October 27. However, if you want to ensure you’re among the first in line to snap up the tenth anniversary stunner when it’s available, you can pre-register your interest now over at Mobiles.co.uk. This will ensure you get a nudge as soon as pre-orders open.
