The iPhone has revolutionised the mobile computer in the past decade, and it remains the gold standard of the smartphone world. If you are going to buy an iPhone you are unlikely to regret it. If you want to score a great deal on an Apple iPhone, here's what to look out for.
Why buy an iPhone?
The combination of Apple's hardware and iOS software is pretty good. When combined with the App Store ecosystem it becomes great. iPhones will never be cheap, but they will always be a high-calibre product. Easy to use and great to look at.
Which iPhone to buy?
This choice is about size, capacity and cost. If you like a big phone go for an iPhone Plus: the 7 is the most recent (and best), but you can still pick up an iPhone 6 Plus and like all the past few generations of iPhones that remains a perfectly adequate device. Capacity is important - you need at least 32GB of storage, and all brand new phones will come with that. But no iPhone has expandable storage, and on Black Friday there will be good deals on older iPhones.
Buying an iPhone: SIM-free or contract?
Now you have to decide how to buy your iPhone. If you are a billionaire who has the cash to buy outright, it may be more efficient to go SIM free and grab either a PAYG SIM or a cheap data contract from the likes of GiffGaff. But the iPhone is an expensive phone, and the networks subsidise iPhone purchases as they know how popular are Apple's devices. And with a contract you are likely to get the first chance to upgrade your iPhone. Look out for great contract and SIM-free deals on iPhones.
