These are the top iPhone 15 pre-order deals right now

The iPhone 15 is finally available to pre-order, and that means one thing: tempting iPhone 15 contract deals.

With the addition of USB-C, a 48MP camera, a brighter 2000 nits display and the introduction of the Dynamic Island (previously locked to the iPhone 14 Pro range), there are plenty of reasons why you might be tempted to upgrade to Apple’s latest handset, particularly if you have an older device like the iPhone 11 or iPhone 12.

If you want to know more about Apple’s upcoming handset before making any sort of commitment, then you can check out our guide to the iPhone 15, as well as our point-by-point breakdown of the iPhone 15 vs iPhone 15 Pro.

When can I pre-order the iPhone 15?

Pre-orders for the iPhone 15 went live on Friday, 15 September at 1pm (BST), meaning pre-order deals are live right now, with the phone set to ship next Friday, 22 September.

Top iPhone 15 Pre-order Deals


Vodafone is offering a range of tempting iPhone 15 pre-order deals to suit every price range, with one of the cheapest we’ve seen bundling the 128GB iPhone 15 with 3GB of 5G data and unlimited calls and texts for £41 per month with £39 upfront – but there are ways to reduce that, namely by trading in an eligible smartphone.

At the moment, the network claims that you can save up to £821 on your next iPhone when you trade in one of last year’s models.

As an additional incentive, Vodafone also agrees to a guaranteed buy-back price with customers so that if they want to trade in their iPhone 15 next year for whatever Apple drops in 2024, then you’ll know exactly how much trade-in value you can get.

If you’re the type of person who simply can’t bear the thought of not upgrading each year, then Vodafone is probably your best bet.

Sky Mobile

While Vodafone has plenty of trade-in deals, Sky Mobile is probably the better bet right now if you just want to pick up a new iPhone at an affordable rate without shipping off an old handset in the process.

The iPhone 15 itself starts with a monthly cost of £26 per month, with data tariffs that begin at £8 for 8GB, moving all the way up to £26 for 150GB. This means that the cheapest you could be paying for the iPhone 15 overall would be £34 a month on the 8GB option, which isn’t too bad for keeping the cost down.

If you do require a bit more data but don’t want to up the price too much then there is a 20GB SIM for £10 option that’s also available.


EE is also keen to get in on the pre-order action for the iPhone 15, boasting a range of contracts, though the most tempting we’ve seen is a contract that offers unlimited 5G data, calls and texts for £56 per month with £30 upfront. The contract will also allow you to share data with other family members also on EE, though with a catch that you’ll only experience up to 100Mbps speeds.

For full 5G speeds, you’ll need to opt for an Essential Max plan, taking the price up to £59 per month with £30 upfront.

There’s also the Full Works plan that also includes unlimited 5G data alongside an Apple One subscription and free roaming abroad, though that’ll take you up to £69 per month.

As with the iPhone 15 Pro, Three is offering some spectacularly cheap iPhone 15 contract deals including unlimited 5G data, calls and texts for just £41 per month with £30 upfront. The catch? You’ll need to trade in an iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Pro to get the contract quite so cheap.


If you don’t fancy trading in your old iPhone to Three, O2 is also offering a swathe of early pre-order deals for the iPhone 15.

The best value contract we’ve seen from O2 so far is one that bundles the 128GB iPhone 15 with 150GB of 5G data, unlimited calls and texts as well as free roaming in the EU, US and Australia, six months of Apple Music and six months of Disney+ for £53.99 per month with £30 upfront.

There are cheaper deals for those that don’t need quite so much, however, starting with just 1GB of 5G data and free EU roaming for £42 a month with £30 upfront.
