Should I get the iPhone XS Max on a SIM free or pay monthly deal?

If you want to pick it up SIM free, you're looking £1,099 for the cheapest 64GB model, or £1,249 for the 256GB edition which were the prices at the time of release.

And if you prefer the top-of-the-range 512GB version, expect to pay £1,449.

If you do plump for an iPhone XS Max SIM free, you'll then need to sign up for a SIM only deal.

The cheapest start at about £5 per month. But if you want a decent allowance that lets you make the most of your handset, you should budget for at least £10 per month.

We've crunched the numbers and it does work out cheaper to buy the iPhone XS Max SIM free.

Depending on the network and allowances you choose, you can often save as much as £200 over the course of a two-year contract.

But the catch is that you'll need to have over £1,000 to pay out upfront. And that's not the kind of money that most people have to hand.

Opt for a iPhone XS Max monthly contract deal and you'll be paying much less upfront. But you'll still have to find a substantial sum each month.

Our advice would be to go for a SIM free iPhone XS Max deal if you've got £1,000 to pay hand. You'll without doubt save yourself money in the long run.

But if you haven't got the cash to pay upfront, opting for pay monthly is still the best option.
