Best iPhone XS Deals for October 2018

Best iPhone XS Deals: The successor to the iPhone X is finally here and we’ve rounded up all of the best iPhone XS deals for you to peruse.

Now that the iPhone XS is out and so is our iPhone XS review, we can speak openly about the smartphone and offer a more accurate comparison against previous iPhone models, as well as other flagship smartphones.

Tackling the most obvious issue head-on, the iPhone XS isn’t cheap. It’s certainly not as expensive as the iPhone XS Max but when compared to other smartphones, it definitely holds a lofty price tag with a minimum RRP of £999. If price is no object however (totally not jealous over here), then there are some pretty good deals to be had where contracts are concerned.

With regards to the phone itself, our very own Alex Todd-Walker has bestowed the iPhone XS with a 4/5 rating, noting that while the XS’s updates aren’t immediately apparent, it’s still the one of the best high-end smartphones around.

When you do get a chance to delve into the iPhone XS, you’ll see that it’s major changes come in the form of Apple’s new smart-HDR technology and faster processing, courtesy of the new A12 Bionic chip.

For a more in-depth take, I recommend reading our review in full before picking up a new iPhone XS. If you’re already convinced, then let’s not waste any more time and get straight to the deals.

As always, our phone deals are separated into low and high data contracts, as well as SIM-free models for those who are happy to stay with their current providers.

The iPhone XS may look like last year’s iPhone X but it now comes in gold… in truth, there are actually a wealth of new features onboard to render this the best and brightest of Apple in a smartphone. At the heart of the XS lies the new A12 Bionic processor; it offers a 15% performance improvement over last year’s A11 Bionic chip and paired with iOS 12 promises app load times that are 30% faster. The dual OIS-laden 12-megapixel rear camera now lets you adjust the amount of background bokeh after the fact, letting you adjust the virtual aperture from f/16 all the way out to f/1.4. The XS also promises better battery life than its predecessor and faster FaceID unlock too.


How much data do you need?

Here’s a question that with determine which plan you go with more than any other. Higher data contracts will take a toll on the price you pay either upfront or on a monthly basis, but whichever it is, the surplus will be there. Luckily for most of us however, if you’re a casual social media user (like myself), then there’s no need to worry about consuming too much data.

Social media platforms have been optimised to consume very low amounts of data, meaning that you’ll be perfectly content with a monthly allowance of between 4-8GB. If you’re the type of person to go one step beyond (watching Netflix during work meetings totally counts) then you’ll need something in the 20-40GB range.
