iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max: buyer’s guide to the best deals

We've scoured the market to bring you our pick of the best deals on the best-ever iPhones.

Last week, Apple unveiled its much-anticipated new smartphones. Dubbed the ‘best-ever iPhones’, the iPhone XS and XS Max come fully loaded with a super-fast processor, an all-screen design and a camera that promises to compete with the likes of Huawei, Samsung and Google.

Best of all, these hotly-anticipated handsets are available SIM-free and on monthly contracts through all the major networks right now.

But who’s offering the best perks and freebies? And what’s the cheapest way to get the latest iPhone?

Read on and we’ll walk you through our pick of the best deals for the iPhone XS and XS Max.

Vodafone iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max deals

The iPhone XS and XS Max are available from Vodafone. And there are some great incentives for early-bird buyers.

If you sign up for a contract that comes with a minimum monthly allowance of 16GB, Vodafone will give you an extra 10GB a month for no extra cost. And they’ll double that to 20GB if you buy the Apple Watch on the same day.

So if you sign up for a £66 a month plan for the standard iPhone XS, you’d ordinarily get you a monthly allowance of 16GB. But if you get it before 19th December, Vodafone will give you 26GB a month for the same price. Or a staggering 36GB if you buy the new Apple Watch at the same time.

And right now, you can get the iPhone XS Max for exactly the same cost on our special uSwitch exclusive deal. So that’ll be £66 a month for 26GB of data and unlimited calls and texts with nothing to pay upfront.

SMARTY isn’t selling the XS or XS Max on contract deals. It’s a SIM-only network, after all.

That said, SMARTY is loudly trumpeting that if you pick up the XS SIM free and sign up for a 4GB-per-month SMARTY SIM for £10 per month, you can save up to £150 compared to 24-month handset-and-phone contracts with the same allowance from big networks.

The numbers add up. But it does mean you’ll have to find £999 to stump up to buy the iPhone XS upfront.
