If the shiny new iPhone 8 is at the top of your wish list, this list of the best iPhone 8 deals will be just what the doctor ordered. We’ve scoured top UK retailers and networks to bring you the very best iPhone 8 tariffs available right now.
The iPhone 8 launched with a bang back in September, and we’ve kept this page updated with the best deals on the UK’s most trusted mobile networks ever since.
Here’s our favourite deal at the moment for starters:
The iPhone 8 is, put simply, a revolutionary phone of firsts. Never before has an iPhone come coated in a sleek, all-glass back and front. Nor has any iPhone run on Apple’s new performance enhancing A11 Bionic Processor – or, for that matter, come freshly loaded with the new iOS 11. Exciting stuff.

Best iPhone 8 deals – 1GB to 3GB
A lightweight data deal between 1GB and 3GB is a good option for people who don’t tend to use their phone’s 4G capabilities for much more than emailing, messaging, browsing – with the odd Skype call or Google Maps session thrown in. If you tend to do the majority of data-sucking activities like watching YouTube videos and downloading stuff when you’re tethered to Wi-Fi, one of these deals should suit you just fine.
O2 and EE dominate this data range at the moment, with the cheapest monthly rate sitting at just £32 for a 3GB O2 deal, which is less than EE was asking for a 1GB deal about a week ago. Be sure to compare the monthly payments against the upfront costs, because it often works out cheaper to pick a deal with a bigger upfront cost.
Best iPhone 8 deals – 4GB to 6GB
You might want to pick a deal with between 4GB and 6GB of 4G data if you regularly pull out your phone between work and home to message, browse, watch videos, send emails, and other general phone tasks than require the powers of 4G. This level of data won’t be enough if you need long and regular YouTube binges or Spotify streaming sessions on your daily commute, but it’s enough to keep you covered for a few indulgent days a week on top of your daily usage.

We spotted a variety of networks offering great deals in this data range this month. EE’s 5GB deal at £32.99 is probably the cream of the crop in this category at the moment, striking a nice balance between upfront cost and monthly payments.
Best iPhone 8 deals – 8GB to 10GB
If you’re reluctant to fork out for one of the data-heavy deals below, but break into a sweat at the thought of running out of 4G data with one of the sub 8GB deals above, then why not settle for one of these mid-level deals? You get more than enough data for regular usage of your iPhone 8 for things like WhatsApp, Facebook, emailing and browsing, with enough left over to comfortably watch videos, listen to music and use other data-draining apps without worrying.
EE, Three and O2 are on equal footing with deals in this data range a the moment. The upfront costs for most of these deals look pretty nail-biting, but we’re impressed that all of the monthly payment plans stick safely under £40. Three is the only network with a good free upfront deal right now.
Best iPhone 8 deals – 12GB to 16GB
Any deal in the 12GB to 16GB data range will suit serious phone users with a penchant for browsing, streaming, downloading and guzzling through apps on a regular basis. We’re not talking 10 hours of YouTube every day, but this is the kind of data that you need to pick up if you’re frequently using apps that are heavy on the data as well as browsing, messaging, emailing and hopping between your favourite apps.
Again, Three, EE and O2 lead the way in this category. We’re really liking what EE and O2 have to offer; their deals aren’t much more expensive than lesser data deals in the 8GB to 10GB category. With the Three deal, you pay the price in the long-term for shirking an upfront cost.
Best iPhone 8 deals – 20GB +
Pick a deal with 20GB or more if you find yourself frequently away from the comfort of Wi-Fi and needing to hook up to the internet. Perhaps you work away a lot and need entertainment while you travel, or you’re a remote worker who needs the freedom to Mobile Hotspot when Wi-Fi lets you down. Maybe you’ve got a seriously out-of-control penchant for music, videos and social media and you’re happy to foot the bill for your addiction. Either way, pick one of these deals…
If you compare all of the below deals with the rest on this page, it almost makes sense to go large this month for how little extra it costs. There are four main networks offering good big data deals right now, so take a look and take your pick!
