iPhone 5S deals

Hang about, you might be thinking: why are they offering me iPhone 5S deals, that phone's ancient now?

Well, dear reader, don't be put off by the age of the 5S because it's without doubt one of Apple's best ever phones.

For one thing, you get the brilliant fingerprint scanner, that works better than pretty much any other on the market. Plus the phone is powerful, beautifully design and supports the latest version of Apple's iOS, and will continue to get updates for some time to come.

And more importantly, it's now a lot cheaper than it used to be and we've found loads of great iPhone 5S deals we think you'll like.

iphone 6 deals on o2

Best iPhone 5S deals on O2

O2 is the network with extras, including the popular O2 Priority service

Deal 1: Free phone, unlimited calls, unlimited texts, 1GB of data, £27.50pm
This is super-cheap and has everything you really need at a good price. Data could be more generous, but it's not a major worry.

Deal 2: Free phone, unlimited calls, unlimited texts, 3GB of Data, £31pm

Deal 3: £50 phone, 500 minutes, unlimited texts, 500mb of data, £23.50pm
Reasonably cheap way to get an iPhone 5S, but really not a massive saving on deal 1. Still, every pound counts and while you need to pay £50 for the phone here it does save you some money over the lifetime of the deal.

vodafone

Best iPhone 5S deals on Vodafone

Vodafone prides itself in coverage and quality, it's often a bit mean with data, but there are extras like Spotify and Sky Sports Mobile thrown in.

Deal 1: Free phone, unlimited calls, unlimited texts, 2GB of data, £34pm
Not as good as Vodafone's number one deal, which is also our overall best 5S package, but still a good price for 2GB of data and unlimited everything else.

iphone 5c deals

Deal 2: Free phone, unlimited calls, unlimited texts, 6GB of data, £39pm
Not that cheap on a monthly basis, but if you need to use a lot of data this is a very good deal.

iphone 5c deals

Deal 3: £99.99 phone, 1000 minutes, unlimited texts, 1GB of data, £25pm
A cheap deal if you don't mind paying a £100 for your handset. This will save you money over 24 months, but not a huge amount.

iphone 6 deals on Three

Best iPhone 5S deals on Three

Three is one of few providers that offers unlimited data, and Feel at Home is amazing for regular travellers.

Deal 1: Free phone, unlimited calls, unlimited texts, unlimited data, £41

If you must have a free phone and unlimited data, this is the only deal in the UK offering that. As usual with Three though, it's not that cheap and buying the phone outright and getting SIM only is a better deal.

iphone 5c deals

Deal 2: £29.99 phone, unlimited calls, unlimited texts, 1GB of data, £31pm
Not the cheapest deal in the UK, but a reasonable price nonetheless. You do have to cough up £30 for the phone though.

iphone 5c deals

Deal 3: £9 phone, 600 minutes, unlimited texts, unlimited data, £38pm
This deal gets a mention because of the unlimited data and lowest overall cost over 24 months. It's still more expensive than most networks, but you get the benefit of as much data as you can use.
