After all those months of speculation, the Apple iPhone XS has finally been released. The successor to Apple's game-changing 10th anniversary phone last year, the 2018 edition increases the power and improves the design but, to our delight, doesn't raise the price tag if you buy it unlocked and SIM-free.

The RRP is $999/£999 (honestly quite a lot cheaper for the iPhone XS price than we imagined), and in previous years no retailer has been able to go lower than that in the first few weeks. So it's up to you what retailer you go for...the choice is yours when it comes to buying a SIM-free iPhone XS and combining with one of our best SIM only deals (UK only).

Or if you want an iPhone XS with more memory then you can put down an extra stack of cash and secure all that extra room for photos, tunes and video. The 256GB version starts at $1,149/£1,149 with the mighty 512GB model at $1,349/£1,349.

And if you don't have that spare wad to buy outright, don't forget to check out what you'll pay on contract for iPhone XS deals in the US and iPhone XS deals in the UK.
