With all that in mind, the iPhone XS Max has plenty of expectations to live up to. From what we’ve seen however, it seems to do just that with the addition of a bigger screen, better battery life and a whole host of delicious upgrades to the dual-camera set-up. As one would expect, all of those new features come with a hefty price tag.
Prices for the iPhone XS Max start at £1099, a huge ask for most people and enough to deter them from buying the phone completely. If the iPhone XS Max is a bit too out of your price range then you’ll definitely want to take a look at the more affordable iPhone XS or even the iPhone XR.

The network’s Go Binge feature is a God-send for any Netflix or Apple Music addicts out there (we know you exist), giving you unlimited data access to those apps. Go Roam is another fantastic Three exclusive, giving you the chance to use your monthly allowance in 71 countries around the world at no extra cost.

Best iPhone XS Max Preorder Deals – Sky Mobile
Given the high price of the iPhone XS Max, any attempts to bring the price down will be greatly appreciated by most (myself included). With that in mind, Sky Mobile’s Swap12 and Swap24 plans are a great shout that can help you save some serious cash.
- Swap12: Existing Sky Mobile customers can trade in their device for the latest smartphone each year.
- Swap24: An alternate plan for existing Sky Mobile customers, allowing them to trade in their phone every two years and get the lowest possible monthly price (with no upfront) on a new device.
Opting for the iPhone XS Max over the iPhone XS obviously means that you’ll be paying a surplus, but that doesn’t meant that you have to pay a fortune. Sky Mobile’s Swap24 scheme offers a range of easily affordable low-data contracts that won’t break the bank.
- iPhone XS Max Preorder: 1GB, £47/month with no upfront on Sky Mobile (Swap24)

Any travelers will be happy to know that Vodafone’s roaming service recently expanded its coverage to include 29 new countries including the USA – time to finally see the Big Apple, I reckon.

Just as with the iPhone XS, Virgin Media has struck it out of the park with its deals for the iPhone XS Max. If you’re happy to go with a low-data contract (either 1GB or 6GB in this case) then you’ll be hard pushed to find anything better than Virgin Media’s iPhone XS Max contracts with no upfront cost.

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.
