Best iPhone Deals: Whether you want Apple’s latest flagship, the iPhone 11, or something older and a bit more affordable like the iPhone X or iPhone 8, we’ve collated the best current iPhone offers for March 2020.
Apple has been guilty of charging premium prices for its gadgets since the dawn of time – or founding of Apple, anyway. That said, it’s now becoming a standard for flagship, feature-packed handsets to come with a starting price of around the £1000 mark, making this virtually out of the question for a lot of us average beings with bills to pay and food to put on the table.
All hope is not lost, though. There are still ways to get your hands on an iPhone at a more affordable rate, namely contract deals, though we’ve found a few good SIM-free options for those ballers out there prepared to drop the cash.
From contract deals to SIM-free offers, we’re bringing together the best iPhone deals currently on the web, taking you from the iPhone 11 down to the iPhone 7, with older models still just as powerful, but far cheaper.
Jump to the best iPhone deals:
With a family of iPhones released every year, you can expect to find some fairly affordable deals as each model is succeeded and the value of older models go down. It’s worth noting with such a quick succession, this usually means the tech itself on previous models is still excellent and not all that outdated, making them worth a second look – especially if you don’t want to sell a kidney.
With deals on everything from the iPhone XR down to the iPhone 8, there’s something for everyone including those who want the very latest handset from Apple. Our top contract deal for the iPhone 11 is the 100GB plan with Three from Carphone Warehouse. With zero upfront costs, pay just £41 a month for a beefy tariff and the excellent iPhone 11 handset.

Best iPhone 11 Deals
Today's Best iPhone 11 Deals
If you're after one of the most affordable iPhone 11 tariffs around, then Mobiles.co.uk has you covered. Getting you a healthy 20GB of data, you can even knock £10 off the upfront cost by using the code TRUSTED10.
Let's face it, 100GB might as well say 'unlimited' – it's more than enough data to get you through everything you'd need for a month; streaming, gaming, etc. And with no upfront cost to worry about, this Three tariff is too good to miss.
Ever since Black Friday 2019, iPhone 11 deals have been dropping like flies. At present however, our favourite also happens to be an offer exclusive to Trusted Reviews readers – a 100GB Three tariff with nothing to pay upfront and just £41 a month. As you can imagine, having 100GB of data in your pocket won’t leave you wanting by the end of the month. More than likely, you won’t even come anywhere near depleting even half of that allowance.
If you’re not an excessive streamer and data doesn’t hold quite the same value to you as it does to others, then you might be better off with EE’s 20GB tariff, which rings in at just £884 over two years (as opposed to £984 for the 100GB tariff mentioned above). Besides, 20GB is more than enough to get through hours of streaming songs and a bit of YouTube on the side.
Best iPhone 11 offers to date:
- Contract: 100GB on Three (still available)
- SIM-free: £649 on Currys PC World’s eBay store (was available 20/03/20)
Best iPhone XS Deals
Today's Best iPhone XS Deals
Finally, the iPhone XS has come down to the same price we saw for the iPhone XR over Black Friday. Just be sure to hit the 'Three' tab on Fonehouse's page in order to see the deal.
Keep your monthly rate down with this 10GB plan, enjoying all the perks of being on the EE network on top.
It just goes to show – if you wait for a new update cycle, last year’s top-tier iPhones will be purchasable on the cheap. A similar deal to that which we saw on the iPhone XR, this 100GB tariff from Fonehouse sees you getting the true flagship from the 2018 Apple iPhone launch, paying just £36 a month and no upfront cost for the superior iPhone XS.
If you’re not one to blow all your data and want a smaller, cheaper plan this one from Metro Fone might just be the ticket. With 10GB of data that can more than see you through as long as you ensure you download music and episodes preemptively before going out and about or travelling, you’ll also benefit from the standard EE perks like six months of Apple Music, all for £28 a month. How is this contract so cheap? Remember there is a £149 upfront cost to pay, though it does help in making those monthly payments much easier on the bank account.

Best iPhone XR Deals

Don't need a big data plan? How about this 20GB tariff courtesy of O2 where you can enjoy O2 Priority on your new iPhone XR?
No upfront cost and a sweet 100GB of data for all your bingeing needs, this is the top iPhone XR deal right now.
There are very few differences between the iPhone XR and its successor, the iPhone 11, making this a great shout if you’re looking for a handset that is a touch more affordable but still fairly up to date when it comes to excellent smartphone features. Buymobiles has knocked Fonehouse off the top spot with its 100GB Three plan this time around. Whilst £2 more expensive at £36 a month, with Buymobiles you’ll pay nothing upfront whilst Fonehouse has gone back up to £19.99 a month.
If you don’t really need all that data, you can also pick up a slightly more manageable 20GB deal from e2save who has reduced its rates on this particular contract. Now pay £31 a month and £55 upfront for this brand new handset from e2save.
Best iPhone XR offers to date:
- Contract: 100GB on Three for £34/month (was available 16/03/20)
- SIM-free: £549 on Argos (was available 29/11/2019)
Best iPhone X Deals
Today's Best iPhone X Deals
Get the first of Apple's bezel-less iPhones, boasting its stunning 5.8-inch Super Retina immersive display on one of EE's feature packed plans.
Don't want to be tied down by a long-term contract? Why not buy the iPhone X outright?
Due to Apple largely dropping any recognition of the once supreme iPhone X, very few retailers still stock the device, but luckily Fonehouse still has a few in stock. Even handier is the fact that the retailer’s offering a high amount of data in return for just £48 a month and no upfront cost. It’s not the best iPhone X deal that’s ever been however, and we’d definitely recommend opting for a far more cost-effective iPhone XS contract instead.
If you’d rather buy outright and avoid a monthly direct debit, you can always go for a SIM-free handset if you’ve got the cash to burn. Currently the best SIM-free price is £899 from Argos for a silver iPhone X with 64GB of storage. £100 off its original starting price upon release, this isn’t a bad saving though, again, we’ve definitely seen cheaper. That said, if you want a somewhat fashionable looking iPhone, this first of Apple’s bezel-less handsets is definitely the most affordable option out there right now.
Best iPhone X offers to date:
- Contract: 125GB on EE (still available)
- SIM-free: £639 on Amazon (was available 09/12/2019)
Best iPhone 8 Deals
Today's Best iPhone 8 Deals
Finally, picking up an iPhone 8 with a high data allowance no longer costs an arm and a leg, evident by this stellar offering from Fonehouse, with 100GB of data coming courtesy of Three.
This 15GB O2 contract has been reduced from £35 a month to just £28.50 a month when you claim £156 in cash back on selected months.
When it comes to finding cheaper contracts, looking at older models is a sure-fire way of getting even more for your money and that’s definitely the case with both these iPhone 8 contract deals. Looking for something sub the £30 mark? Get a juicy 100GB of data on Three and benefit from having an almost unlimited streaming allowance on the go – just what you need if nothing, not even walking down the street, will stop you from binging the latest Netflix series.
If you’re looking to purchase the iPhone 8 on contract for a younger member of your family, you may only be looking for a contract with a smaller chunk of data. This 15GB O2 tariff on Affordable Mobiles is a great shout, then, coming to just £28.50 a month with no upfront costs. Just remember to claim your cashback on the selected months and save £156.
