Which iPhone is right for you?

1. Apple iPhone 7

Waterproofing. Better battery. Improved camera. A fine upgrade.

OS: iOS 10 | Screen size:4.7-inch | Resolution: 750 x 1334 | Memory: 2GB | Weight: 138g | Dimensions: 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1mm |Storage: 32/128/256GB | Battery: 1960mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 7MP

If you're going to buy a new iPhone, this is the one to get – there's slightly longer battery life, a better camera, fast innards and protection against water. However, many of the changes are slight, and the iPhone 6S, for the lower price, suddenly becomes a very attractive option.

2. Apple iPhone 6S

The best selling phone in the world is simply stunning

OS: iOS 9 | Screen size: 4.7-inch | Resolution: 1334 x 750 | Memory: 2GB | Storage: 16/64/128GB | Battery: 1,715mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 5MP

Until recently, the iPhone 6S was the most advanced iPhone of them all, and is still a stunning phone even against the iPhone 7. It looks very similar to the iPhone 6 below, but it's got a new '3D touch' screen which allows you to do different things depending how hard you press on it, plus a new camera, faster processor and a stronger frame. It's pricey, but as you can see from the iPhone deals table above, it's quite a bit cheaper now than when it first went on sale.

3. iPhone SE deals

The new iPhone SE is an iPhone 6S in the shape of an iPhone 5S

OS: iOS 9 | Screen size: 4-inch | Resolution: 1136 x 640 | Memory: 2GB | Storage: 16/64GB | Battery: 1,642mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 1.2MP

The iPhone SE is the latest model to go on sale worldwide. It's a bit different from what we're used to. Instead of getting bigger, the new iPhone SE has gone smaller. It's a 4-inch screen just like the old iPhone 5S. That should please all the people who want a modern iPhone without having to put up with enormous handset sizes.

4. iPhone 6S Plus

The big brother to the phone above is beautiful and powerful

OS: iOS 9 | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | Memory: 2GB | Storage: 16/64/128GB | Battery: 2,750mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 5MP

The iPhone 6S Plus is very similar to the iPhone 6S above but it's bigger and, some would say, better. Some will find the bigger size inconvenient but for iPhone users who have looked on enviously at all those gorgeous Android phablets out there, this is the phone for you. The screen is big enough that you won't be reaching for your iPad as much. There are few reasons to upgrade from an iPhone 6 Plus to this phone, but if you're on an older model and you want the best iPhone with the biggest screen, this is definitively it.

5. Apple iPhone 6

Still a stunning phone and one of the best iPhones ever

OS: iOS 8 | Screen size: 4.7-inch | Resolution: 1334 x 750 | Memory: 1GB | Storage: 16/64/128GB |Battery: 1,810mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 1.2MP | Ranked: #2 in TR's best mobile phones chart

If you want the very best iPhone money can buy but for the absolute best value, we highly recommend opting for the iPhone 6. Last year it was the best iPhone ever and it still offers the premium experience you've come to expect from Apple and lots more. It's bigger, better, sleeker and faster than the other devices below on this page - and it's not as expensive as you might think. Check out the deals we've found above.

6. iPhone 6 Plus

The biggest iPhone ever is the most visually stunning to date

OS: iOS 8 | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | Memory: 1GB | Storage: 16/64/128GB | Battery: 2,915mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 1.2MP | Ranked: #8 in TR's best mobile phones list

If you're looking for something a little bigger but without paying the asking price for a 6S Plus, check out the iPhone 6 Plus. It's the biggest iPhone ever, jointly with the newer model, it's practically an iPad in fact. But with the trend towards larger phones these days, the iPhone 6 Plus is still selling well. It is a little pricey, but if you check out the iPhone deals we've found above you'll see it's not that expensive and certainly cheaper than the 6S Plus!

7. iPhone 5S

The official 'budget' option is still a good phone and available very cheaply

OS: iOS 8 | Screen size: 4-inch | Resolution: 1136 x 640 | Memory: 1GB | Storage: 16/32/64GB | Battery: 1,560mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 1.2MP

2013's flagship iPhone 5S is still very much worth a look, though with the launch of the iPhone SE this phone will soon be phased out. It's no longer in production so when stock is gone, it's gone but in the meantime you can get loads of great deals from all the networks and you don't need to pay an upfront fee either. This is still much better than most other phones out there so if you want the premium iPhone experience but don't want the bigger iPhone 6S or don't want to spend quite that much, check out the iPhone 5S deals above.
