Top iPhone XR deals by network

iPhone XR colours

Even though the iPhone XR isn't quite as expensive as the iPhone XS or XS Max and has been playfully referred to as Apple’s ‘budget’ smartphone, it's not cheap. And is, in fact, priced in line with many rivals' flagship phones.

What you get for outlay depends largely on which network you choose. To put you in the picture, here's a snapshot of the key selling points of the UK's largest networks.

iPhone XR deals on O2

O2's Priority scheme is one of the best customer rewards offers around and gets you priority booking in O2 venues, as well as freebies and money-off in high-street stores. O2 customers also get inclusive roaming in O2's Europe Zone.

iPhone XR deals on Vodafone

Pick up the iPhone XR on Vodafone's Red Entertainment deals and you get to choose from a 24-month subscription to Sky Sports Mobile, Amazon Prime Video or Spotify Premium. Want a Now TV Entertainment Pass instead? That's up for grabs too.

iPhone XR deals on EE

iPhone XR at a glance

The iPhone XR keeps all the bits that make iPhones so great but pares down a few elements to keep the price down a bi. We're fans. And here's why.

For starters, it's an elegant, all-display smartphone and the colour options (red, blue, yellow, white, black, and coral) really stand out in a sea of identikit handsets.

We also love the large 6.1-inch screen, which isn't quite as bright and brilliant as the XS display, but looks great all the same.

The glossy, glass rear means the XR can be charged wirelessly and the battery life is best of any iPhone.

And the camera's no slouch either and handles most shots and scenes with aplomb. Although, the portrait mode isn't quite as good as the higher-end rivals, it's still pretty serviceable.

iPhone XR with no upfront cost

As mentioned above, there are different ways to manage the cost of a new iPhone XR. If you’re keen to avoid paying an upfront fee and would rather spread your costs over the course of a contract, there are network suppliers which offer this option.

Suppliers refer to this a ‘free device’ which isn’t technically true - it just means you won’t pay anything upfront. However, it does mean you will pay a higher fee each month. The plus is you get a shiny new premium iPhone in your hand without first forking our hundreds of pounds.

You can compare network deals and vary the amount you’re comfortable paying upfront against the amount you pay each month.

Frequently asked questions

Can I get an iPhone XR contract with bad credit?

Before they let you sign up for a plan, most mobile networks will carry out a credit check. Of course, if you have bad credit, this can be a problem. But it doesn’t have to be - there are still plenty of deals you can sign up to.

How can i find a Cheap iPhone XR deal?

So you're in the market for an iPhone XR, but don't want to break the bank? Here's some tips to help you get the most for your money.

  • Compromise on storage. Do you really need 128GB? You can save substantially with lower storage editions of the XR.
  • Choose a low cost network. The likes of Tesco Mobile and giffgaff offer cheaper contracts than bigger networks. Albeit with fewer extras.
  • Go refurbished. Nearly-new iPhone XR deals are available and can you save you hundreds of pounds over the course of the contract.
