The best iPhone deals in the January Sales:

iPhone 6 16GB | FREE upfront | O2 4G | Unlimited calls and texts | 1GB data | £27.50pm
If you want a great iPhone without paying a premium for the absolute latest version, you should look at getting at last year's iPhone 6 and this is a great deal right here. You'd be getting a refurb iPhone 6 -usually that means the phone has been sent back by someone else for a refund without opening it, so there's absolutely no reason not to trust the handset - they're sold 'as new'. And given that you'd be getting the phone for free with just a £27.50 monthly fee, this is a great deal! Total cost over 24 months is just £660

Get this deal: from Carphone Warehouse's new site - e2save.com

Techradar has negotiated the following three deals with O2, EE and Mobiles.co.uk - owned by Carphone Warehouse. We're recommending them because they offer better value compared to the other deals out there - but don't take our word for it, you can use the price comparison tool below to compare all UK iPhone 6S deals in all capacities and colours!

o2 deals

iPhone 6S 64GB | O2 4G | £175 £75 up front | Unlimited calls | Unlimited texts | 3GB data | £31pm
This is the best iPhone 6S deal in the UK right now - none of the other retailers or networks can beat it. Use the January Sale voucher code TRJANSALEO2 at the checkout to save £100 on the superior 64GB version of the iPhone 6S and pay £75 up front instead of £175. Then you'll be on a 4G contract with O2 which offers unlimited calls and texts and 3GB data for just £31 per month. Total cost of this deal is £819 over two years.

ee deal

iPhone 6S 64GB | EE Extra 4G | £100 £50 upfront | 1000 minutes | Unlimited texts | 2GB data | £34.99pm
Similar to the iPhone 6S deal above, this deal comes on EE Extra 4G instead of O2. The discount code TRJAN64 will get you the 64GB handset at half price - just £50 instead of £100. That leaves you paying £34.99 per month for 1000 minutes, unlimited texts and 2GB data. With this deal you pay £25 less upfront than the O2 deal above, and you get EE's double-speed 4G tariff, but with the £34.99 monthly cost it does work out a bit more expensive. However, if you really want to be on EE (which is still by far the UK's most popular network) this is still a great deal and gets the techradar stamp of approval. Total cost of this deal is £889.76 over two years.

ee deal

iPhone 6S 128GB | EE Extra 4G | £200 £150 upfront | Unlimited minutes and texts | 4GB data | £34.99pm
This is a great deal on the iPhone 6S 128GB, again on EE and this time with a better value contract but with a slightly more expensive upfront cost - as you'd expect from the top-end model. Using the voucher code TRJAN128 you can save £50 on the upfront cost of the best-of-the-best iPhone 6S 128GB - go for this deal if you need loads of space on the phone for music, movies, photos and documents. The monthly cost is the same as the EE deal above, but with double the data and with unlimited minutes instead of 1000. Total cost of this deal is £989.76 over two years.
