The UK's top 5 best iPhone 6 deals

It may be 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, Vodafone and Three to narrow down the best five plans available today.

iPhone 6 32GB | Vodafone | 99p upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 1GB data | £18pm
The bottom fell out of the iPhone 6 market over the summer. Vodafone has come up trumps with an exceptional deal for Apple's 2014 flagship phone. It costs a mere 99p upfront  and then a crazy-low £18 a month after that. No other major network can quite match this right now. Total cost over 24 months is £432.99

iPhone 6 32GB | O2 | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 3GB data | £27pm
We are lapping up this deal from Mobiles.co.uk on O2. With nothing to pay upfront and £27 per month for 3GB data, we were already liking it. But then we noticed that the retailer will also give you £168 cashback. That brings the overall price screaming down under the £500-mark. Total cost over 24 month is £480 (after cashback)

iPhone 6 32GB | EE | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 5GB data | £27.99pm
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 and you get £20 cashback, too! Plus, you'll be on the UK's fastest 4G network. Total cost over 24 month is £671.76

Get this iPhone 6 deal from Carphone Warehouse

iPhone 6 32GB | Vodafone | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 16GB data | £36pm
This deal on the iPhone 6 is very eye-catching, with monthly payments of £36pm and a free phone. Not bad at all for such a high data allowance - although for a while there it was up to 26GB. Nobody else used to come close if you do a lot of streaming and downloading away from Wi-Fi - that was until Three returned to the iPhone 6... Total cost over 24 months is £864

iPhone 6 32GB | Three | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 30GB data | £36pm
It's back! Three seemed to give up on the golden oldie iPhone 6 for a while there, but this big data deal gets things up and running again. It's free upfront as well. Do bear in mind though that with its £36 per month bills, it doesn't cost a huge amount more to get last year's iPhone 7. The same money for a much better phone. Total cost over 24 month is £864

Iconic design
Brilliant battery
Cracking keyboard
Screen could be better

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!
