The best iPhone XS deals and contracts in February 2020

It might no longer be the most recent Apple flagship but with its age, iPhone XS deals have come down in price, offering a top-notch Apple experience at a far lower price than we're used to seeing it. 

And although it's no longer the newest Apple device, the specs on offer with this phone still feel very much up-to-date. In fact, compared to Apple's latest releases, there isn't a huge amount to differentiate between.

And considering Apple tends to carry some...well, hefty price tags, we see iPhone XS deals as the safer option over the XS Max or any of the new 11 series.

Following right behind Apple's 10th anniversary smartphone, the SIM-free XS costs can now be found from £629 upfront, meaning that shaving a few quid off of your contract deal is crucial. And luckily Apple has released a few new devices since the XS including the XS Max, iPhone XR and of course, the trio of iPhone 11s.

In terms of specs, the iPhone XS is packed full of power, especially for an older phone. With its A12 Bionic chipset, 2658mAh battery and Super Retina OLED display, the iPhone XS can still hold its own against the 2019 devices now available.

iPhone XS review and specs in brief

Like the excellent iPhone X...just a whole lot better

Screen size: 5.8-inches | Resolution: 1125 x 2436 | Rear camera: 12MP | Weight: 177g | OS: iOS 12 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB/256GB/512GB | External storage: No | Battery: 2716mAh

That rapid A12 Bionic chip
Speaker improvement
Display remains staggering
Didn't you see the price!?

If the iPhone X was the massive innovative leap that we'd been hoping Apple would make for years, then the XS feels a lot more like the iterative update that we'd been getting used to over the previous few Septembers.

But don't imagine for one moment that means Apple has totally rested on its laurels. There's a brand new so-called Bionic chipset in the iPhone XS - the computing lengths the company wants you to achieve with the XS are extraordinary. We've also been told about enhancements to the main camera, an extra 1GB of RAM and an incredible 512GB of storage on the costliest model.

Only you know whether you need a smartphone as advanced as the iPhone XS. But if you do, you won't find any better deals around than on this very page.
