The UK's best iPhone 6 deals
It may be almost three years old, but the iPhone 6 has aged admirably. And the mature age also means the prices are fantastic. We've sorted through the finest iPhone 6 deals from EE, O2 and Vodafone (the Three network no longer does tariffs on the iPhone 6) to narrow down the best five plans available today.
iPhone 6 32GB | £25 upfront (with 10OFF code) | Unlimited calls and texts | 1GB data | £17.99pm
The bottom fell out of the iPhone 6 market last month. EE has come up trumps with an exceptional deal for Apple's 2014 flagship phone. It was free upfront and then a crazy-low £17.99 a month after that. It now costs £25 upfront (if you use our 10OFF code), but still no other network can match this right now. Total cost over 24 months is £456.76

iPhone 6 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 3GB data | £27pm
We are lapping up this deal from e2save on O2. With nothing to pay upfront and only £27 per month for 3GB data, we were already liking it. But then we noticed that the retailer will also give you an automatic £70 cashback. That brings the overall price screaming down under the £600-mark. Plus, you get priority on tickets to music concerts as well thanks to the network's Priority rewards. Total cost over 24 month is £578

iPhone 6 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 5GB data | £27.99pm
Now that O2's Double Data discount has ended, this EE deal is the one to go for if you need a dab more data. Unless you stream and download away from wi-fi A LOT, 5GB should be plenty. This is a really good deal, especially when you consider that the handset price is absolutely FREE! Total cost over 24 month is £671.76

iPhone 6 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 16GB data | £34pm
Vodafone had been the king of 16GB deals (Hurrah!). That is until it hiked its prices (Booooooo!). But this deal on the iPhone 6 is still decent, with monthly payments of £34pm and a free phone. Not bad at all for this high data allowance - nobody else really comes close if you do a lot of streaming and downloading away from Wi-Fi. Total cost over 24 months is £816

iPhone 6 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 25GB data | £47.99pm
Unfortunately, neither Three or GiffGaff now do deals on the iPhone 6. So that means no unlimited data deals. Once you bound over the 25GB mark, deals on the big networks start to get very expensive indeed. So consider this plan on EE. Pay nothing upfront and then less than £50 per month for stacks of data, calls and texts. Total cost over 24 month is £1151.76

iPhone 6 review and key specs
Still brilliant after three years
Weight: 129g | Dimensions: 138.1 x 67 x 6.9mm | OS: iOS 10.3.3 | Screen size: 4.7-inch | Resolution: 750 x 1334 resolution | CPU: Apple A8 | RAM: 1GB | Storage: 16/32/64/128GB | Battery: 1810mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 1.2MP
Unlike more recent entries in the iPhone ouevre, Apple made a genuine leap forward from the iPhone 5S with its successor. The iPhone 6 remains one of the best phones Apple has ever created or, indeed, ever created by any manufacturer. At the time of release, its faster CPU, better graphics and slicker interface really made it seem worth the high price - so now it's a bonafide bargain!
