The best iPhone 11 deals in October 2019

Mixing affordability and specs, iPhone 11 deals are our new favourite option from Apple. It somehow simultaneously offers the latest and some of the best specs Apple has managed so far while also dropping the prices we saw last year. 

We're happy to wager that this will be the new iPhone that will suit most people. Of the trio of new handsets, iPhone 11 deals come in at a far lower price tag, while still offering the majority of specs seen in the two more powerful iPhone 11 models.

In fact, Apple is pushing the affordability (well...affordable for an Apple phone!) of this device so much, it even has a cheaper SIM-free RRP than the iPhone XR did on release last year.

And yet, despite that lower price tag, this is still a major upgrade on last year's phone. However, If you're looking for more power, more cameras and the latest cutting edge tech then you'll want to head over to our iPhone Pro and Pro Max deals page instead.

Inside this phone, Apple has crammed in a 3110mAh battery, a CPU that Apple claims is the fastest in any smartphone ever and ramped up the camera abilities. There is now a wide angle lens and telescopic lens for your benefits. 

We've already seen monthly bills drop down below the £30 a month mark (with some high upfront spends of course!). But, with Black Friday now just around the corner, the time to get this phone cheap is almost here.

Adding to the pretty impressive affordable pricing on offer, Apple is offering a year long subscription to its brand new Apple TV+ service, a subscription that would normally cost you £4.99 a month. You can find out more about this below.

So if you're ready to compare iPhone 11 deals you're in the right place. Below we've compared all of the available offers on Apple's latest affordable flagship so you can find your best price, either on contract or SIM-free.

Screen size: 6.1-inch | Resolution: 828 x 1792 | Rear camera: 12 + 12MP | OS: iOS 13 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64/128/256GB | Battery: 3110mAh | Weight: 194g

Not hugely different to last year

While the iPhone 11 isn't hugely different to last year's iPhone XR, it has made improvements in all of the most crucial areas. That means an upgrade to a dual camera set-up, with wide angle lens and optical zooms. An increased battery capacity of 3110mAh and what Apple is claiming to be the 'fastest CPU ever in a smartphone'.

They've managed to cram all of that in while also dropping down the price, impressive right?

SIM-free iPhone 11 prices

Coming in at an RRP of £729, the iPhone 11 is cheaper SIM-free than the iPhone XR was on launch. That means this could be an excellent 'cheap' iPhone when paired with a cheap SIM only deal. 

It is also far cheaper than both the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max making this the issue choice of the three. Realistically, no one will be undercutting each other for price for a while when it comes to SIM-free options so just pick the retailer you prefer for SIM-free.
