Buying a new smartphone is rarely a fun experience. However, when it comes to new iPhone deals, Apple fans are spoilt, as there are a wealth of affordable options on the whole range of devices so you’re not overpaying on your contract or being underserved with the amount of data you use.
But which one do you go for? The iPhone family is as big as the Kardashian clan, and it’s often a headache working out which one is going to be best for you. The iPhone 13 Pro Max is the best overall from Apple, but should only be considered by those with big hands and bigger budgets. The iPhone 13 Pro is the next best thing, but again can cost upwards of a grand, so perhaps the standard 13 is best?
More affordable options arrive in the shape of the iPhone SE or 13 mini, or even the slightly older iPhone 12 mini if you really want to pinch the pennies, but it’s not just about which phone you choose, but also which network you select.
Top providers like EE, O2, Three, Sky Mobile and more all offer various contracts with upfront costs, monthly bills, and maybe one or two perks like a subscription to Disney+ or BT Sport to reward you for your loyalty, with mountains of data, minutes, and texts all bundled up together. So let’s take a look at all the top deals across the internet for all the latest iPhones.
The best-selling offer with EE right now will get you 40GB of data and more minutes and texts than you’ll be able to use in a lifetime, all for £50 upfront and £57 a month. Truly, 40GB should be more than enough for most people – statistically, the average Brit only used between 6-12GB – but it’s always nice to know you won’t go over and be whacked with a massive bill at the end of the month.
The cheapest available contract only has 1GB and you’ll have to pay £90 upfront but then you’ll pay £45 each month. Need unlimited data? It’s available for £30 upfront and £64 a month. With all EE contracts, you can add a “swappable benefit” to your contract, which is a free subscription to the likes of Netflix, Disney+, BT Sport, or Apple Music as part of your contract. These are typically a little more expensive but it’s handy for signing up to a streaming service without the headache of keeping track of what you’re paying for.
All plans are across a 24-month contract, and there’s the full range of colors, including the fancy new green option and Apple’s famous Product Red.

iPhone 13 Pro
Three is well-known for having excellent unlimited data packages on its smartphone contract deals, and that’s the case with the iPhone 13 Pro, as there’s an absolute belter of a deal going on right now. If you buy the Pro, you’ll get unlimited data, texts and calls on Three’s six-months-half-price offer. Basically, you’ll pay £35.50 for the first six months of your contract before going up to £71 for the remainder of your two-year contract, saving you a tonne right off the bat. You’ll have to pay £69 upfront, but if you’re swapping over to Three from another network, the provider will give you a £200 pre-paid Mastercard to spend on pretty much anything you want. Pretty good, right?
