Retailers cutting the cost of older-gen iPhones when the new model is about to hove into view is a sight that will be very familiar to Apple watchers. And with a matter of weeks to go until a refreshed iPhone drops, that’s exactly what’s happening right now.
Retailer Dialaphone has cut the cost of the iPhone 4GB edition. The handset is now free when customers sign up for it on T-Mobile at £15.50 over a 24-month deal. Previously, a £159.99 upfront fee applied. Monthly allowances are 50 mins, 250 texts and 1GB of data.
Mobiles.co.uk has also trimmed the price of the handset, with a new tariff that undercuts anything previously available on the site. Grab the iPhone 8GB in black or white on O2 through the retailer and you’ll pay £29.99 upfront and £17 per month.
This entitles you to 300 minutes and 500MB of data per month, plus unlimited texts.
Apple is expected to launch the next model of the standard iPhone in September, possibly alongside a much-leaked low-cost version that’s aimed principally at markets in the developing world.
