Cheap iPhone deals do not apply to the shinny new iPhone X. If you’re a long-time Apple devotee, then you are probably super excited about the announcement of the iPhone X. It has facial recognition (welcome to the future), 3D camera and wireless charging. And if you’re thinking ‘wow, that sounds expensive’ – you’re right. The iPhone X is pretty costly.
But there is a silver lining: it’s brought about a whole host of cheap iPhone deals on all the older models (including the iPhone 8, which is currently the newest model). So, if you’re after a new Apple product or are just looking for cheap iPhone deals, you’re in luck. We’ve trawled the internet to bring you the best cheap iPhone deals we could find.
Bamboo’s top picks: cheap iPhone deals
OK, we’ll be honest – there are literally no cheap deals on the iPhone X. It is eye-wateringly expensive.
For just a 64GB version, you’re looking at a staggering £999. If you want 256GB, then you’ll have to pay £1,149 instead. However, we promised you cheap iPhone deals, and so cheap iPhone deals you shall get. (Well, relatively cheap iPhone deals, anyway…)
Sky Mobile have announced that the iPhone X is going to be available from £42 a month – but only with 500MB of data. This is barely enough to flick through Facebook on the bus, let alone listen to podcasts or watch films. If you want 10GB of data, you’re still going to have to stump up £57 a month or £684 a year for two years.
A bit too pricey? How about the iPhone 8?
The iPhone 8 is still a top-of-the-range phone: it has wireless charging, Retina HD display and a high-quality camera. Plus, you can nab yourself on with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 3GB of data from mobiles.co.uk.
Full disclosure, you have to pay £270 upfront, which sounds pricey, but works out cheaper in the long-run than paying for the handset over the course of every month. Of course, if you don’t have a spare £270, then there are plenty of options to pay for the handset in your monthly bill – they’re just not as cheap as the mobiles.co.uk deal.
If you’re looking for a solid, dependable and highly-functional iPhone, and aren’t so fussed about all the sci-fi features, then the iPhone 7 is the phone for you. Plus, there’s good news: because the iPhone X has been announced and the iPhone 8 has been released, the prices of the iPhone 7 have dropped significantly.
This is another deal from mobiles.co.uk, they’re a well-respected phone reseller, this super cheap iPhone deal costs just £27 a month (with £80 upfront) for 3GB of data, unlimited calls and unlimited texts. And the good news isn’t over yet – if you head to the Trusted Reviews iPhone 7 page, you’ll find a discount code that knocks £10 off the upfront fee too. Taking it to £70 upfront.
The iPhone 6 is a little over 3 years old now, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not still a very good phone, and a more-than-affordable alternative to the iPhone 8. Even better news – with the announcement of the iPhone X and the launch of the iPhone 8, you can now nab yourself a great deal for less than £20 a month.
This deal from mobiles.co.uk is easily the best – 1GB of data, unlimited calls and unlimited texts for £17.99 a month. With only £35 to pay upfront, that’s a steal! If you need more data, 2GB a month is just £22.99 a month.
So, there you have it – the full range of cheap iPhone deals, from the swanky iPhone X to the hardy iPhone 6. (Although, the real message of this post appears to be: if you need a cheap mobile phone deal, go to mobiles.co.uk)
