At its 2014 release, the iPhone 6 was a big step up from iPhones before it: the screen was bigger, its shape was classier, and it was a whole lot more powerful. These days it's a great alternative to the hefty price tag on Apple's newer models.

iPhone 6 contract lengths
When choosing the best deal, it’s also important to consider which type of contract will suit you best. Most networks, for example, offer a mixture of 12, 18 and even 24-month contracts. But if you don’t fancy being attached to one provider for that long, 30 day SIM only deals are also available from most major networks.

iPhone at a glance
The iPhone 6 introduced a fresh design when it came out: rounded, smooth, and very stylish. It packs the now-standard 4.7-inch HD display, with colours that look clear and fabulous. Inside, it runs on a dual-core Apple A8 chip and 1GB of RAM.
On the back, you'll find an 8MP camera that can even record Full HD video, complete with clever Slo-Mo and timelapse modes. And on the front, there's a home button with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, so you can keep your phone super secure and use Apple Pay.
You'll also get Siri, along with Bluetooth, free iCloud space, and up to 128GB of internal storage (like the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s).
iPhone 6 deals with no upfront cost
Don't want to splash the cash today? The good news is that there are plenty of iPhone 6 deals with no upfront cost - so you can get a 'free' device today.
The cost of the handset is instead spread out over the length of your contract, so it does mean spending a little more each month. However, since the iPhone 6 is an older model now, costs are generally low anyway. The extra amount on your bill won't be more than a few quid.
To compare deals with nothing to pay upfront, select 'free' under the phone cost details on the comparison grid. Remember to select everything else you want from your deal too, such as network, monthly allowance, and phone storage size.
Refurbished iPhone 6 deals
Don't fancy forking out for a brand-new handset? Why not try a refurbished phone. Winningly, you'll often find these handsets in decent condition - in some cases, they may have only been used a few times. All we can say is be sure to read the small print to check the condition of the phone in before you buy.
It’s also critical that you check that the phone is unlocked before you buy it. This means it won’t be tied to a particular network provider, so you can effectively shop around for the best deals.
