The best iPhone SE deals in February 2019

The iPhone SE may have been officially removed from the Apple Store, but the budget Apple smartphone continues to sell at some seriously rapid speeds. That's largely because the cheapest iPhone on the market recently had yet another price drop and heading into 2019 it is still beautifully cheap - and on this page you'll find the best iPhone SE deals in the UK.

Following Apple's product launch back in September, it feels like the iPhone SE 2 is still no closer to being released. But that hasn't stopped tariffs falling and you can now get iPhone SE deals on contract for a mere £15 per month - that means around £400 over the course of the contract!

The tech world rejoiced when the iPhone SE was released. Finally, a new Apple phone that doesn't require you to remortgage your house and take on a second job - unlike iPhone XS Max deals! It looks and feels exactly the same as the iPhone 5S. But instead of sporting two-year-old hardware it's fully up to date, with a super-fast CPU and graphics, and the 12MP iSight camera straight out of the iPhone 6S.

If cheap iPhone SE deals are what you seek, then you've definitely come to the right place. Use TechRadar's comparison chart to easily find the ideal plan, or scroll down further to find our pick of the best SE deals on the market.

iPhone SE 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited mins and texts | 3GB data | £22pm |
There used to be a deal at this exact same price offering up an extra GB of data but that is sadly gone. But even with its drop in data, this is still a brilliant deal to get your hands on. £22 a month for 3GB of data is a brilliant price to be had, get it before it changes again. Total cost over 24 months is £528

iPhone SE 32GB | FREE upfront | Unlimited minutes and texts | 10GB data | £32pm | £168 cashback by redemption
O2 isn't really the best place to be when it comes to the iPhone SE but if you are set on it then this is the best deal. Yes £32 a month seems like a lot but the plus side is there is quite a decent amount of data to play with and absolutely no upfront costs and the best part? £168 cashback by redemption, knocking the effective cost down to £25 a month. The cost over 24 months is £600 (after cashback)

iPhone SE 32GB | £0.99 upfront | Unlimited mins and texts | 1GB data | £22pm
Vodafone really isn't the best provider when it comes to iPhone SE deals but if your heart is set on them we've got your best offer right here. Just £22 a month and a strange £0.99 upfront makes this a pretty cheap way to get this device. You do only get 1GB of data though so big data users beware. Total cost over 24 months is £528.99

iPhone SE 32GB | £19.99 upfront | Unlimited minutes | Unlimited texts | Unlimited data | £37pm
Three was forking up the SE with unlimited data for an incredibly cheap price up until recently but unfortunately you currently have to pay a bit more. But for £37 a month you can get unlimited use of the internet, a big price for a worthy cause. The total cost of this deal over 24 months is £907.99

Budget price point
Reasons to Avoid
Outdated screen

Launched back in March 2016, the 'Special Edition' iPhone SE was a rare example of Apple dropping its entry-level price to allow bargain-hunters a piece of the iPhone pie. It reduced the screen size from the iPhone 6, but kitted it out with the same camera as the iPhone 6S. In short, it's a premium smartphone with a lower price tag – and we like that!
