Apple's iPhones are world-renowned for their user-friendliness, offering the widest selection of apps and games on any smartphone, many of which are completely free to download.
Each iPhone also scores highly with consumers for its good looks and great design with Apple consistently topping the polls as a customers' favourite smartphone brand.
In fact, in a 2022 survey by Uswitch on UK mobile phone facts and statistics, 44% of people surveyed owned an Apple mobile phone device, showing it to be the most popular brand among UK phone users, in front of Samsung (35%).
iPhones are top-end smartphones, often with top-end prices to match. But there are some great iPhone deals to be found depending on which model you're keen to get and the service you want.
The new iPhone 15 range features four new handsets with the most-advanced specs available in an iPhone. The iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max were all announced at Apple's annual launch event and feature all of its latest technology, including USB-C charging, 48MP cameras across the range and a new titanium casing.
Timing is also a big factor when it comes to getting the best iPhone contract deal for your money. And with the launch of the new iPhone 15, it's also a great time to look for deals on both the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 range.
If you're not too bothered about owning the latest and greatest iPhone, the best period to buy an existing model is in the few months after the new iPhone is out. It's around this time that networks discount existing iPhone handsets to clear stocks.
However, be aware that Apple discontinues both of its Pro models from previous ranges when the new one is launched. So if you want the iPhone 14 Pro or the iPhone 13 Pro, your best bet is to shop from a network.

Since the launch of the very first iPhone, every year has brought with it an updated model.
Here we’ll explain the differences between the different editions and outline their key specifications.
The new iPhone 15 is the entry-level handset of the iPhone 15 range. As always it has top-quality specs in the form of a superb 6.1-inch OLED screen, a camera setup with a new 48MP main camera, and the new USB-C connection.
The 2023 selection of iPhones has included two Pro models - the iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro Max. These two handsets have had the most upgrades, namely in the shape of the new A17 Bionic chip, a periscope telephotos camera with 3x and 5x optical zoom, and a new titanium finish.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch OLED display, compared to the iPhone 15 Pro's 6.1-inch display.
The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max also both have a dynamic island, ProMotion technology with adaptive refresh rates up to 120Hz, and up to 1TB in storage.
The iPhone 15 Plus joins the regular iPhone as the entry point into the range, but increases the screen size to match the Pro Max. The iPhone 15 Plus has the same specs and features as the iPhone 15 but with a 6.7-inch screen.
The new Apple iPhone 15 range is available from 15th September.
The iPhone 14 is the standard model of the iPhone 14 range, but that doesn't mean it's a run-of-the-mill smartphone. A stunning 6.1-inch OLED screen has now been boosted to a 120Hz refresh rate and the camera has some exciting new upgrades including macrophotography and cinematic video recording.
Though it's a few years old now, the iPhone 13 is still an excellent quality smartphone. While it doesn't have a number of the newer, flashy features such as dynamic island or 48MP cameras, it's significantly more expensive than the iPhone 15.
