Best Apple Deals 2019

There are plenty of deals to be had. There are deals galore on iPhones, iPads, Apple Watch, MacBooks, headphones, speakers and other tech, but it can be confusing when there are so many deals from so many different retailers. 

Luckily we’re here to round up all the best Apple deals, Apple discounts and Apple offers retailers have online right now. Amazon, Argos, Currys and lots of other retailers have sales events at various points throughout the year, and with our indispensable guide you can snap up lots of Apple tech at bargain prices. Grab these deals quickly though - they'll sell out fast!

Apple Watch Series 5 (40mm)

Apple Watch Series 5 (40mm)

From: Amazon

Was: £399

Now: £379

Apple's latest and greatest smartwatch is available for a sliver less than usual, thanks to this great Amazon deal.

Apple iPhone 11 with 120GB data

Apple iPhone 11 with 120GB data

From: Carphone Warehouse

Now: £29 upfront, £47 per month

Pick up the latest iPhone from Carphone Warehouse and get 120GB data from O2 in this online-only deal.

Apple iPhone XR with 30GB data

Apple iPhone XR with 30GB data

From: O2

Now: £90 upfront, £30 per month

O2's XR deal has gone up a little since December (the upfront cost by £9, the monthly fee by £3), but it remains the best big-data choice on this handset. Scroll down to see the contracts.

If you can manage with less data, however, consider ID's 1GB and 2GB contracts, which can get total cost of ownership as low as £793.75.

Apple iPhone X (SIM-free)

Apple iPhone X (SIM-free)

From: John Lewis

Was: £899

Now: £629

The iPhone X from 2017 is no longer sold by Apple. It's still a thoroughly serviceable phone, but current deals aren't really low enough to justify plumping for this model - the XS is a year newer and available for the same price.

Apple iPhone XS (SIM-free)

Apple iPhone XS (SIM-free)

From: John Lewis

Was: £999

Now: £629

A fantastic deal. The XS remains an excellent phone, despite having been effectively replaced by the iPhone 11 Pro.

Apple iPhone 8 with 100GB data

Apple iPhone 8 with 100GB data

From: Affordable Mobiles

Now: £30 per month

Pick up an iPhone 8 with 100GB of data for £30 per month with no upfront cost.

Apple iPhone XS with 100GB data

Apple iPhone XS with 100GB data

From: Three

Now: £40 per month

Three's excellent deal has dropped even lower. The monthly cost beats the competition, there's no upfront fee, and you get masses of data. Superb.

Apple iPhone 8 (64GB)

Apple iPhone 8 (64GB)

From: Laptops Direct

Was: £479

Now: £469

Laptops Direct has £10 off Apple's 2017 handset, which offers wireless charging and (unlike the X-series models) a Home button.

KRCS Mac sale

KRCS Mac sale

From: KRCS

Now: 10% off all Macs

From now until Sunday 8 December, KRCS is slashing 10% from the price of every Mac. That includes brand-new models (such as the 16in MacBook Pro) and custom configurations. Read more here: 10% off any Mac at KRCS.

Apple iPhone XS Max with unlimited data

Apple iPhone XS Max with unlimited data

From: Vodafone

Now: £79.99 upfront, £64 per month

Vodafone's unlimited-data XS Max deal is a great option, having undercut EE's similar offering by £20 on the upfront cost.

Apple iPhone 11 Pro (64GB) with 75GB data

Apple iPhone 11 Pro (64GB) with 75GB data

From: EE

Now: £125 upfront, £58 per month

Pick up the new iPhone 11 Pro on contract with EE with a large amount of data. It's pretty much a toss-up between this and O2's even more generous 160GB contract, which is a pound a month more expensive (and very slightly more upfront, too), but we'd have thought 75GB should be enough for most. Click O2's logo if you disagree.

Apple iPhone XS Max (SIM-free)

Apple iPhone XS Max (SIM-free)

From: Amazon

Was: £1,099

Now: £981.07

An extra couple of quid knocked off, after last week's sudden £66 drop on the silver version of the XS Max: not bad, and the cheapest we've seen it. (On 14 November Amazon was asking £1,049.)

Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm)

Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm)

From: Argos

Was: £199

Now: £189

With £10 off the relatively affordable RRP, this is a good saving on the smaller 38mm version of the Series 3. In fact, this is the cheapest you can buy it online right now. 

Apple AirPods with Charging Case (early 2019)

Apple AirPods with Charging Case (early 2019)

From: Laptops Direct

Was: £159

Now: £129

A handy saving on the second-gen AirPods for Black Friday, and the lowest price we're seeing on these earbuds - although Amazon is matching it. (For comparison, Apple is still asking £159.)

Note that this deal comes with the standard wired charging case - if you'd like the upgraded wireless case, you'll have to spend an extra £30 - and that more advanced AirPods Pro have been launched since these came out.

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd-gen)

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd-gen)

From: Amazon

Was: £49.99

Now: £24.99

It's not the cheapest we've ever seen it, but it's a great deal if you want to buy one today.

Apple iPhone 7 (SIM-free, 128GB)

Apple iPhone 7 (SIM-free, 128GB)

From: Amazon

Was: £549

Now: £429

This is a decent saving (although the price has gone up by a tenner since 14 November, and may drop again); read our iPhone 7 review for advice on whether this 2016 handset is right for you.

We recommend that you go for the 128GB model linked above, but if you think you can manage with 32GB that's available for £379.

Apple iPhone 8 with 30GB data

Apple iPhone 8 with 30GB data

From: O2

Now: £30 per month

This is an excellent iPhone 8 deal. Alternatively, click on EE's logo and pay £31 per month (plus £24 cashback), which is essentially the same thing.

Apple 16in MacBook Pro, 2.6GHz, 6-core, 512GB (2019)

Apple 16in MacBook Pro, 2.6GHz, 6-core, 512GB (2019)

From: Amazon

Was: £2,399

Now: £2,185

Amazon is offering a great discount on the new 2019 16in MacBook Pro. It's not quite as much off as they were offering on Black Friday, but it's still pretty decent.

KRCS also has a good deal on the 16in MacBook Pro, though it's a few pounds more. Get that deal here.

Apple 13in MacBook Pro, 1.4GHz, quad-core, 256GB (2019)

Apple 13in MacBook Pro, 1.4GHz, quad-core, 256GB (2019)

From: Laptops Direct

Now: £1,349.97

Here's a decent saving on the 256GB version of the 2019 1.4GHz MacBook Pro.

Amazon also has a similar deal on the same model here.

Apple 13in MacBook Pro, 1.4GHz, quad-core, 128GB (2019)
