Black Friday iPhone 8 deals: If you’re after an Apple iPhone that won’t break the bank then you’ll want to invest in an iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus.
That’s because, since the newer iPhone XS and iPhone XR came out retailers across the board have been slashing the price of last year’s Apple flagships. This means you can pick up the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus on a number of banging deals in the run up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
If you’re shopping for an iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus SIM-free then you’ve got a great set of options. Most retailers, including Argos, Carphone Warehouse and John Lewis have cut £40 off both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus’ RRP.
The discount means you can grab the smaller 64GB iPhone 8 for meagre £599 and the larger 64GB iPhone 8 Plus for £699 at most stores at the moment, which amazing when you consider the new iPhones will generally set you back a whopping £1000-plus.
As it stands we’d recommend going to John Lewis if you’re going to buy an iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus SIM-free. John Lewis is selling the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus with a couple of nifty extras. The best of these is a free three month subscription to Apple Music, which will be a definite boon to any avid music fan.
It also offers two years of accidental damage insurance for a reasonable £115, which will be a solid investment for any buyer. You’d still do well do buy a case with your new iPhone, regardless of whether you pick up the insurance or not.
If you want an iPhone on a contract there are numerous different packages to choose from, scroll down to see our pick of the best currently running. We’ll be updating this page as and when new deals come out, so make sure to check back regularly.
iPhone 8 – Black Friday
Out of all Apple’s current iPhones the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are the most likely to get a significant discount this Black Friday. It would make sense for retailers to drop the price at Black Friday as a way to differentiate the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus from the newer XR, which retails for £749 at the moment. If our prediction rings true you should be able to pick up an 8-series iPhone on a great deal this Black Friday.
This would follow some already hefty iPhone 8 discounts. In the wake of Apple’s newest iPhones being released, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus received a massive price drops with SIM-free versions of the phones now going for £100 less than their RRP. To sweeten the deal, some retailers are also giving away three months of Apple Music absolutely free with each eligible purchase.
This isn’t to say the latest gen smartphones won’t get some banging deals this Black Friday though. During last year’s Black Friday sale, Very.co.uk ran a banging offer on the iPhone 8. Through the company’s ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ scheme you could snap up the iPhone 8 for just £560 – cheaper than it is now. As expected, the deal went off like fireworks and we’ll be sure to keep our eyes peels for any similar offers this year. Just be sure to bookmark this page as we’ll be updating it regularly throughout the Black Friday season.
