The autumn is such an exciting time to be an Apple fan, with a gaggle of new smartphones to savour every year. 2018 is no different, with three mobile phones being launched: the iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR. And we have information on all of the best iPhone deals, no matter what model you're after.
And what model, prey tell, are you after? Is it one of those supercharged 2018 flagship iPhones with their extraordinary Super Retina screens, increased onboard storage and new Bionic A12 chipset. Maybe one of the predecessors - the iPhone 8 or iPhone X - both of which are great choices a year after release. And then there's the Apple handsets that have been condemned to the bargain basement like the iPhone SE and iPhone 6.
TechRadar's handy price comparison allows you to search for the cheapest deals on all current iPhone models. Whatever the network, whatever the data you need, we'll help you zero in on the best plan for you.
Unlike other price comparisons, we're completely impartial and we always aim to show you the best iPhone deals out there! The price comparison table above allows you to compare and filter the deals on all of the available iPhone models. You can choose to find the price point that works for you, or you can select which phone you want first and then drill down into the deals. It's up to you!
Which iPhone is right for you?
You may think this is an easy question to answer. You should just buy the best, newest iPhone...right? We actually think there's a little bit more nuance to it than that, especially as the iPhone XS is just so darn expensive. The iPhone 8 is excellent for sure, but it doesn't improve massively on the 7, which is cheaper. And you may prefer the feel (and price tag) of the smaller iPhone SE.
So keep reading, and we'll help you decide on the best iPhone for you.
Apple iPhone XS
Iterative improvements on the X
OS: iOS 12 | Screen size: 5.8-inch | Resolution: 1125 x 2436 | Memory: 4GB Ram | Weight: 177g | Dimensions: 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7mm |Storage: 64/256/512GB | Battery: 2658mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 7MP
If the iPhone X was the giant leap, then the XS is the one small step. It looks and feels like the 2017 version, but there are definite improvements if you look hard enough to the camera, chipset and launch of a 512GB storage version.

Apple iPhone XS Max
The biggest and best iPhone ever made
OS: iOS 12 | Screen size: 6.5-inch | Resolution: 1242 x 2688 | Memory: 4GB Ram | Weight: 208g | Dimensions: 157.5 x 77.4 x 7.7mm |Storage: 64/256/512GB | Battery: 3174mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 7MP
The iPhone XS Max was the real talking point of the 2018 Apple iPhone launch, with the Plus moniker being retired and Max taking its place. At 6.5 inches, the Super Retina screen is a massive, video watching gem. It's pricey though, so only you will know if you really need all that display.

Apple iPhone X
The most exciting iPhone in years
OS: iOS 11 | Screen size: 5.8-inch | Resolution: 1125 x 2436 | Memory: 3GB Ram | Weight: 174g | Dimensions: 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7mm |Storage: 64/256GB | Battery: 2716mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 7MP
Even the most hardened Apple fanboy must have been getting at least a little tired at Apple's incremental approach to its iPhone releases. The iPhone X reinvigorated our excitement with its fresh new features, wireless charging, 5.8-inch display and the end of the home button.

Apple iPhone 8
The usual iterative update - the 7S by another name
OS: iOS 11 | Screen size: 4.7-inch | Resolution: 750 x 1334 | Memory: 2GB Ram | Weight: 148g | Dimensions: 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3mm |Storage: 64/256GB | Battery: 1821mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 7MP
Let's state this first of all - this is the best 4.7-inch iPhone you can buy. But that doesn't prevent us feeling like we should have had more. We like the wireless charging and can't quibble about its performance, but it isn't a massive upgrade on the iPhone 7.

Apple iPhone 8 Plus
Genuine improvement on previous iPhone Plus models
OS: iOS 11 | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1080 x 1920 | Memory: 3GB Ram | Weight: 202g | Dimensions: 158.4 x 78.1 x 7.5mm |Storage: 64/256GB | Battery: 2691mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 7MP
If the sight of iPhone X deals make you feel a little faint, then use the iPhone 8 Plus as your metaphorical smelling salt. The added wireless charging and premium glass casing make it feel like a proper step up from the iPhone 7 Plus. And it's a brilliant - if over-sized - tool for photos.

Apple iPhone 7
Waterproofing. Better battery. Improved camera. A fine upgrade.
OS: iOS 10 | Screen size:4.7-inch | Resolution: 750 x 1334 | Memory: 2GB | Weight: 138g | Dimensions: 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1mm |Storage: 32/128/256GB | Battery: 1960mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 7MP
There's a slightly longer battery life, a better camera, fast innards and protection against water compared to the 6S. However, many of the changes are slight, and the lower priced predecessor, suddenly becomes a very attractive option.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus
A modest update, but one that does enough to still excite
OS: iOS 10 | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | Memory: 3GB | Weight: 188g | Dimensions: 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3mm | Storage: 32/128/256GB | Battery: 2900mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 7MP
It may not be the upgrade we were hoping for, but the iPhone 7 Plus is still an excellent phone with improved cameras, super slick performance and a handy waterproof, yet familiar design.

Apple iPhone 6S
The 2015 edition was and is simply stunning
OS: iOS 9 | Screen size: 4.7-inch | Resolution: 1334 x 750 | Memory: 2GB | Storage: 16/64/128GB | Battery: 1,715mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 5MP
It looks very similar to the iPhone 6 below, but it's got a new '3D touch' screen which allows you to do different things depending how hard you press on it, plus a new camera, faster processor and a stronger frame. It's pricey, but as you can see from the iPhone deals table above, it's quite a bit cheaper now than when it first went on sale.

The new iPhone SE is an iPhone 6S in the shape of an iPhone 5S
OS: iOS 9 | Screen size: 4-inch | Resolution: 1136 x 640 | Memory: 2GB | Storage: 16/64GB | Battery: 1,642mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 1.2MP
The iPhone SE is a bit different from what we're used to with iPhone releases. Instead of getting bigger, the new iPhone SE went smaller. It's a 4-inch screen just like the old iPhone 5S. That should please all the people who want a modern iPhone without having to put up with enormous handset sizes.

iPhone 6S Plus
The big brother to the phone above is beautiful and powerful
OS: iOS 9 | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | Memory: 2GB | Storage: 16/64/128GB | Battery: 2,750mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 5MP
The iPhone 6S Plus is very similar to the iPhone 6S above but it's bigger and, some would say, better. Some will find the bigger size inconvenient but for iPhone users who have looked on enviously at all those gorgeous Android phablets out there, this is the phone for you. The screen is big enough that you won't be reaching for your iPad as much. There are few reasons to upgrade from an iPhone 6 Plus to this phone, but if you're on an older model and you want the best iPhone with the biggest screen, this is definitively it.

Apple iPhone 6
Still a supreme phone and one of our favourite iPhones ever
OS: iOS 8 | Screen size: 4.7-inch | Resolution: 1334 x 750 | Memory: 1GB | Storage: 16/64/128GB |Battery: 1,810mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 1.2MP | Ranked: #2 in TR's best mobile phones chart

iPhone 6 Plus
The biggest iPhone ever is the most visually stunning to date
OS: iOS 8 | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | Memory: 1GB | Storage: 16/64/128GB | Battery: 2,915mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 1.2MP | Ranked: #8 in TR's best mobile phones list
If you're looking for something a little bigger but without paying the asking price for a 6S Plus, check out the iPhone 6 Plus. It's the biggest iPhone ever, jointly with the newer model, it's practically an iPad in fact. But with the trend towards larger phones these days, the iPhone 6 Plus is still selling well. It is a little pricey, but if you check out the iPhone deals we've found above you'll see it's not that expensive and certainly cheaper than the 6S Plus!

The official 'budget' option is still a good phone and available very cheaply
OS: iOS 8 | Screen size: 4-inch | Resolution: 1136 x 640 | Memory: 1GB | Storage: 16/32/64GB | Battery: 1,560mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 1.2MP
2013's flagship iPhone 5S is still very much worth a look, though with the launch of the iPhone SE this phone will soon be phased out. It's no longer in production so when stock is gone, it's gone but in the meantime you can get loads of great deals from all the networks and you don't need to pay an upfront fee either. This is still much better than most other phones out there so if you want the premium iPhone experience but don't want the bigger iPhone 6S or don't want to spend quite that much, check out the iPhone 5S deals above.
