Cheap Apple iPhone Deals

Apple is one of the biggest names in the world of smartphones, pushing the barrier of technology with every new iPhone release. In this guide, Latest Deals is here to help choose the best iPhone for you and help you find cheap iPhone deals.

How much are iPhones?


iPhones are towards the higher end of smartphone prices. The latest iPhone14 Pro Max is priced at around £1,199. Apple does have a huge range of models at different prices, the SE range being much more affordable at around £449.

If you opt for older iPhone models, they’ll be much cheaper but you’ll miss out on the latest modern features. The cost of an iPhone largely depends on which model you choose and you’re certainly spoilt for choice!

How to compare iPhone deals 


iPhones are high-end smartphones which mean they come with high-end prices to match. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t get some great deals on iPhones. 

Here are some key things to look out for when finding the best iPhone deal: 

  • Incentives - find an iPhone deal that offers some bonus perks such as O2 Priority, freebies or the option to earn points. 
  • Timing - don’t search for an iPhone deal as soon as a new model has been released. Try to be patient and wait a few months for prices to drop. 
  • Compare - take the time to use comparison sites to find the best iPhone deals for your needs and budget. 

Ask yourself the following questions to help you compare the best iPhone deals:

  • What iPhone model do I want?
  • Do I want a brand new iPhone or a refurbished one?
  • What monthly allowance of calls, texts and data do I need?
  • Can I get existing customer deals from my current network?
  • What’s my budget? What can I afford to spend upfront and monthly?
  • How long do I want to be tied into a contract for? 

When is the best time to buy iPhone deals?


If you time it right, you can bag a brilliant iPhone deal. Here are the best times to have your eyes peeled:

  • New releases - when a new iPhone is released, the previous models will drastically go down in price. So, when the iPhone 14 came out, the iPhone 13 dropped in price. 
  • Black Friday - this is a yearly sale you don’t want to miss. On Black Friday, expect to see iPhone deals come crashing down in price. 
  • Amazon Prime Day - if you’re a Prime subscriber, this two-day long Amazon sale boasts some impressive deals. 
  • Anytime - cheap iPhone deals are available all year round, you just need to know where to look. Thankfully, we’re keeping the tables at the top of this guide updated, meaning you know where to come for the best iPhone deals.

Who has the best deal on iPhone?

There isn’t one network that offers the best iPhone deals as it depends on what you’re looking for and what your budget is. Every network has its own advantages and disadvantages.

To find the best iPhone deals, you can find the cheapest deals below, and you can also try the following: 

  • Look for older iPhones - the older the iPhone model, the cheaper it’ll be.
  • Go for smaller storage - the higher the internal storage, the more expensive the iPhone will be. Bear in mind that iPhones don’t have SD slots so you won’t be able to expand your storage. However, smaller storage is significantly cheaper.
  • Consider smaller networks - the smaller UK networks such as iD Mobile, Giffgaff and Voxi all piggyback off the larger provider’s networks. This means they are often cheaper as they don’t offer the same customer service as it’s online-only. 
  • Go refurbished - refurbished iPhones are technically as good as new but much cheaper.

What is the best iPhone to buy?


Apple’s latest release is the iPhone 14. This range includes the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. 

iPhone 14


The iPhone 14 is the latest model from Apple. It's an impressive upgrade on the iPhone 13 with an advanced dual camera system, a larger screen, and many more exciting features. An iPhone 14 will currently set you back around £850. If you're looking for the latest iPhone but don't want to pay as high a price as some of the other models, this is the phone for you.

iPhone 14 Plus


Apple has released the iPhone 14 Plus as the next step up from the iPhone 14. It has a larger 6.7" display, and supports an extra 6 hours of video playback than the iPhone 14. It's slightly more expensive than the previous model at around £949, but if you want a larger screen you may be tempted.

iPhone 14 Pro


The iPhone 14 Pro is the next step up from the iPhone 14 Plus. It has a smaller 6.1" screen, but the biggest difference is that it has Apple's new Dynamic Island feature. This is a new way of getting alerts, notifications and interactions on your phone. The iPhone 14 plus is priced at around £1,099. If you want the Pro Max (with a larger screen), you'll have to dish out an extra £100.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max builds on the Pro’s specs and it’s even bigger, which might not be for everyone. 

If you're looking for the best and newest phone on the market, this might be the phone for you. It’ll set you back a whopping £1,199, though.

iPhone 13 Pro Max

The Pro Max features an upgraded camera, Super Retina XDR display, and a lightening-fast A15 bionic chip, and is 6.7 inches.

There are currently no deals available for the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

When is the next iPhone coming out?


Apple released another four iPhone models in the Autumn of 2022. These are the iPhone 14, 14 Plus, 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.

If you have been waiting to buy an iPhone 13, until the iPhone 14 was released, now's your chance. You might be able to bag a very cheap deal! 

What is the cheapest iPhone at the moment?


The cheapest iPhone available at the moment is the iPhone SE. The most recent edition of the budget SE was released in March 2022, the SE 3rd Generation.

If you want an iPhone on a budget, we cannot recommend the iPhone SE enough. The SE starts at £449, considerably less than any of their other recent releases.

Below are some of the best deals available on the SE 3rd Gen at the moment. The deals are sorted by the cheapest overall cost.

Which iPhone should I buy?


Still unsure on which iPhone you should buy? We’ve outlined who the most popular iPhone models are best suited for: 

  • iPhone 14 Pro Max - for someone who wants the top of the range phone from Apple's latest release.
  • iPhone 14 Pro - for someone who wants the latest phone, in a convenient smaller size.
  • iPhone 14 Plus - for someone who wants the latest phone, in a larger size, but doesn't want to pay for the top of the range phone.
  • iPhone 14 - for someone who wants a phone from Apple's latest release, but wants the most affordable option.
  • iPhone 13 Pro Max - for people who want a professional camera with three lens, and a bigger phone, without paying for the latest model.
  • iPhone 13 Pro - for someone who wants an upgraded camera, and a smaller phone size.
  • iPhone 13 - for people who don't want to pay for the latest model, but want a high spec phone.
  • iPhone 13 Mini - you want an iPhone but you're on a budget. For someone who wants a smaller phone they can fit in their hand easily.

iPhone vs. Android: Which should I get?


One of the oldest arguments is whether you’re an Apple or an Android user. Apple users swear that Android is inferior. Whilst Android users believe Apple is overpriced.

So, which is the better option for you? Let’s take a look…

Why iPhone is better than Android

  • Apple’s ecosystem - if you own a Mac, iPad or Apple Watch, it only makes sense to get an iPhone. Apple makes it so easy to seamlessly work between its devices. Android doesn’t offer the same level of continuity. 
  • Third-party apps are better - iOS developers tend to deliver better apps than the Android counterparts. This could be down to user experience but a lot of brilliant apps are iOS exclusive. 
  • Huge selection of accessories - Apple has so many accessories available for its iPhones. Android phones don’t get the same level of attention and it can be hard finding phone cases and car mounts for other Android devices.
  • More software updates - Android phones receive fewer updates than iPhones do. Whether you receive an update on Android depends on what type of phone you have and who the manufacturer is.
  • Apple Store - iPhones have far superior retail support. If you have any issues with your phone and need an expert to look at it or repair it, you can go to your local Apple Store and get it fixed the same day. With Android, you’ll have to ship it back to the manufacturer, taking far longer. 
  • Much better security - Apple strictly monitors which apps are allowed on the App Store. Apps that have malware are instantly banned. The Google Play store doesn’t have as strict control. Studies have shown that malware tends to attack Android phones much easier than Apple. 
  • Resale value - old iPhones sell for more money than old Android devices do. This could be because iPhones are more expensive in the first place but it does mean that you can make some money by selling when you upgrade. 

Why Android is better than iPhone

  • More affordable - Android offers a much more affordable range of phones with a smartphone for every budget. Apple tends to only offer iPhones at the higher price range which means they aren’t affordable for everyone. 
  • Customizable - Android devices allow users to customise and personalise their experience. Different downloadable widgets and the ability to download third-party replacements means that Android wins on the customisation.
  • More storage - many Android phones have a microSD slot which allows users to store images, videos, music and more without filling up the internal phone storage. iPhones don’t have this option and charge huge amounts of money for phones with larger storage. 
  • USB-C - Android phones tend to all use a USB-C port for charging and data transfer. USB-C cables are used in many other devices, meaning you won’t have to carry around loads of chargers. 
  • Google Assistant - Android’s Google Assistant is leading the way with artificial intelligence. Google Assistant makes your life easier by having access to Google, meaning it has access to all the information you need. For example, if you have a meeting at 10am and the traffic is bad, Google Assistant will remind you to leave early. Whereas, Apple’s answer is Siri which is much more basic. 
  • Battery - the wide variety of Android phones means that there are some with fantastic battery life. Androids also give users the option to change the battery to a better one if they wish.

Verdict - iPhone vs. Android

As we’ve demonstrated above, the iPhone wins on some things whilst Android wins on others. There’s no final winner as it depends on what you value most as a user. 

For example, if you’re a fan of convenience and simplicity, then the iPhone is the better choice. This is because it's the most popular brand of smartphone and there’s support everywhere you look.

On the other hand, if you’re someone who enjoys the freedom to choose hardware, software and personalize their experience, then Android is the right choice. 

Both the iPhone and Android are the best choice for different reasons. So, it's really up to the individual to decide what’s the best choice for their needs. 

iPhone golden rules

Planning on getting an iPhone? Read our golden rules to bag the best deal and find out what you need to watch out for…

Rule #1 - Compare the cheapest ways of buying 


Always check whether it’s cheaper to take an iPhone out on a contract or buy it outright.

Buying an iPhone outright and pairing it with a SIM-only deal usually works out cheaper. 

With iPhone Payments, you can spread the cost of buying an iPhone outright in 20 interest-free payments. This can make buying outright an affordable option for many. 

You could even consider a refurbished iPhone which will be much more affordable if buying a brand-new phone outright is too expensive.

If you decide to take an iPhone out on a contract, take the time to compare our best contract deals at the start of this guide. 

Rule #2 - Be realistic about how much storage you need


iPhone models all have different storage options, usually, these are 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.

Generally, 64GB can hold 2,000 apps, 1,600 albums or 20 HD films. This is enough for some users.

iPhones don’t have memory card slots so you won’t be able to increase your storage. Having said this, it’s important not to overestimate how much storage you need to play it safe. You can pay up to £200 each time you move up a storage size, so stick to 64GB if it’s enough for you!

Rule #3 - Backup your iPhone for free using the Cloud


Imagine losing all of your data, photos and contacts - it would be awful, wouldn’t it? 

You don’t want to risk this happening so make sure that you backup your iPhone on the iCloud. The iCloud stores your data on Apple’s servers which frees up space on your phone and makes sure that you can’t lose your valuable phone content. 

You can set up your iPhone to automatically backup to the iCloud every day, so you can rest assured that your data is safe.
