What to look for in an iPhone deal

2017 was a huge year for the iPhone. It represented the 10th anniversary of Apple's smartphone, and to celebrate, the company not only launched the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, but also a shiny new model called the iPhone X.

With all of the new models now available to buy, there are some very competitive contract offers and bundle deals on offer as retailers try to win your custom.

If you're not looking for the latest model, you'll be pleased to hear that there are plenty of bargains around for the older models including the iPhone 7, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE, both on contract and SIM-free.
