The latest handsets have dropped from the Apple tree and we’re sorting through them to find you the best iPhone deals before Black Friday

With the latest line of Apple smartphones now hitting the shelves, it’s time to start thinking about the best iPhone deals. While we can’t expect to see any large discounts on the latest flagship iPhone 13 smartphone, the mobile networks will still be competing for your attention, either with the best prices or some great added benefits to sweeten the deal.

There are four new models in total – the standard iPhone 13, the 13 Mini, the 13 Pro and the 13 Pro Max. As each model has its own benefits, we’ve included a broad range of plans to make sure that whichever iteration you decide to get, there’s a deal that will be right for you. What’s more, most of the networks included on this list usually run some kind of trade-in scheme, so you could well get a decent chunk off the price of your new phone by sending in your old one, which is often a good deal in itself.

If you’re not that fussed about picking up the latest iPhone 13 handsets, the good news is that with a fresh line of iPhones usually comes great deals to be had on their predecessors. We’ve gathered some choice selections for older models that still make for great options that will serve you well for years to come. If this is of more interest to you, click here to jump straight to the iPhone 12 deals.

Vodafone: iPhone 13 128GB with 200GB data for £43/mth


There's a lot to love about this deal from Vodafone, making it the best option we've found to get the latest iteration of the Apple iPhone — especially for all the data guzzlers out there. With a choice of five available colours (pink, red, blue, starlight white and midnight black), that all come with 3 months of free Apple TV and Apple Music, Vodafone via Mobiles UK are offering 200GB of data at a monthly cost of £43. This gives you unlimited minutes/texts, with a massive amount of data to play with every month with just a tenner to pay upfront.

There are several other options for data packages, including unlimited data for £150 upfront and £38/mth, but feel free to check them out on their website.

This 24-month contract, for instance, gives you unlimited data, minutes and texts for just £29 upfront and then £28 per month (£56/mth from month seven onwards).

4. Sky Mobile: iPhone 13 Pro Max 128GB with 2GB data for £43/mth and no upfront cost


The stunning iPhone 13 Pro Max is by far the most expensive of Apple’s latest line, but with this deal, you’re really getting your money’s worth - so long as you use your data wisely. The 5G-ready 128GB iPhone 13 Pro Max comes on a 36-month contract that has no upfront cost to worry about.

Instead, Sky is offering a cost of £43 a month, where £37 is for the phone and £6 is for the 2GB data plan with unlimited minutes/texts. Considering Sky Mobile is our best mobile network this year, and one of the few carriers to not re-introduce European roaming charges, this is a deal well worth checking out.

8. EE: iPhone SE 64GB with 100GB data for £37/mth


Carrying forwards the iconic design of early iPhones, the 2020 SE is a deceptively powerful little machine, thanks to the same A13 Bionic chip used in the iPhone 11 Pro.
