Apple’s iPhone XR is available to pre–order now. But that doesn’t have to mean you paying full whack for the handset in one go.
Every major network has revealed price plans for the handset, which brings top–end specs such as Face ID and Apple’s A12 chipset to a wider audience, thanks to a cheaper LCD screen.
And plenty have perks to make things even more enticing. Here’s our pick of the best iPhone XR deals.
O2: iPhone XR 64GB for £51 per month, nothing to pay up front
This includes a whopping 30GB of data (normally 15GB) and unlimited calls and texts for £51 per month.
The usual array of perks are included, such as priority booking at O2 venues, as well as giveaways and offers at restaurants and high-street stores.

Vodafone: iPhone XR 64GB for £57 per month, £49 to pay up front
There are cheaper deals available on Vodafone. But this package comes with some serious sweeteners, not to mention ample allowance.
You get a massive 42GB of data, unlimited calls and texts, plus your choice of Amazon Prime Video, Spotify Premium, Sky Sports Mobile TV or a Now TV Entertainment pass.
That’s not all, though. Trade in your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus and you’ll get £10 per month off your monthly payment, a saving of £240.

Three: iPhone XR 64GB for £50 per month, £99 to pay up front
Three’s wide array of iPhone XR deals can take some navigating. But for us, this simple deal, on its Advanced plan, is the best.
Pay £99 up front and then £50 per month and you get endless data, calls and texts, plus roaming in 71 destinations worldwide.
There’s also Go Binge, so you can use Netflix, Snapchat et al without eating into your data allowance.

EE: iPhone XR 64GB for £48 per month, nothing to pay up front
EE’s deals don’t always come in cheap, but its excellent 4G coverage means it can often be worth paying that premium.
This deal includes a huge 50GB of data, enough for all but the most internet–obsessed smartphone users, as well as unlimited texts and calls.
There’s roaming in the EU, as well as three months' BT Sport app access and 6 months' free Apple Music.
You can even cast BT onto your TV for the first three months.

Sky Mobile: iPhone XR 64GB for £58 per month, £99 to pay up front
Sky Mobile's deals aren't necessarily the cheapest. But they offer some really good sweeteners that might just swing it for you.
This one offers 15GB of data, as well as unlimited texts and calls. That's for Sky TV customers-only, though. If you're not with Sky, add an extra £10 per month for that calls and texts allowance or you can pay for them on a pay as you go basis.
Those sweeteners, though. Here you get data rollover, which means that any unused data gets stored in a trove to use when you like. Or you can cash it in for rewards.
Sky Mobile also lets you change the mix of your allowances every month too, so that they better meet your needs.
And if you're a Sky TV customer, you get Sky Go Extra too, which means you can download shows to your phone and tablet while you're at home to watch on your mobile device when you're out and about.

Tesco Mobile, iPhone XR 64GB £58.24 per month, nothing to pay up front
Our pick of Tesco Mobile's deals bags you 40GB of data per month and 5,000 texts and 5,000 call minutes.
You also get inclusive roaming in 48 European destinations. And because this is an Anytime Upgrade split-contract deal, you can upgrade to a newer phone at any time. So long as you pay off what's remaining on the handset part of your contract.
What's more, you'll accrue Tesco ClubCard points every time you make your monthly payment, too.

iD Mobile, iPhone XR 64GB £44.99 per month, plus £149.99 to pay up front
Aimed at lighter data users than most of the others in this rundown, our favourite iD Mobile deal includes 10GB of data per month and unlimited calls and texts.
Value-adds include inclusive roaming in 52 locations and data rollover that lets you rollover unused data from month to month. Thus giving you a second chance to make use of your allowance.
