Where to find the best iPhone 13 deals
The iPhone 13 is the latest Apple phone in the flagship range – and the most sought-after smartphone on the market.
That means nearly every retailer is offering pay-monthly plans, with a smaller number of stores also stocking the SIM-free handset.
The following providers are all offering contracts on the new iPhone 13 range:
- Carphone Warehouse – deals start from £39
- EE – deals start from £45 per month
- Fonehouse – deals start from £37.50 per month
- Mobiles.co.uk – deals start from £38 per month
- O2 – deals start from £38.99 per month
- Three – deals start from £48 per month
- Vodafone deals start from £43 per month
- Virgin Media – deals start from £39.75 per month
Best overall iPhone 13 deal: Unlimited data with Fonehouse
Fonehouse has an iPhone 13 plan from Three that offers buyers a serious dose of data – and for absolutely nothing upfront.
What's even better is this deal is available on the new green colour too.
We're calling this our favourite all-round iPhone 13 deal at the moment, but you should scroll on for other options with different data allowances.
- Apple iPhone 13 128 GB | unlimited monthly data | £44 per month | £0 upfront | 24 months – buy from Three/Fonehouse
Best iPhone 13 deals this May
Best iPhone 13 deal for data: Three
Here's an iPhone 13 deal that offers limitless data, and it comes from Three via Fonehouse – a contract that offers you unlimited data on a monthly basis for £44 per month and only £25 of upfront costs.
This offer is on the 128GB handset across all five colours.
- Apple iPhone 13 128 GB | Unlimited monthly data | £44 per month | £25 upfront | 24 months – buy from Three/Fonehouse
Best iPhone 13 deal for upfront cost: Virgin Media
Virgin Media is currently offering 30GB of monthly data and no upfront costs for the iPhone 13. And at £29 per month, this is a pretty good deal for a flagship device from Apple.
Keep in mind though: this is a 36-month contract, so that's quite a bit of commitment.
- Apple iPhone 13 128GB | 25GB monthly data | £29 per month | £0 upfront | 36 months – buy from Virgin Media
Best iPhone 13 deal for low monthly cost and data: iD Mobile
You'll find contracts out there on the iPhone 13 for as little as £28 a month – but be prepared to spend hundreds upfront.
We think this plan from iD Mobiles is the best compromise: it fixes you up with a substantial 200GB of monthly data for just £37.99 a month and just £29.99 upfront.
However, this is a limited time deal so grab it before it goes.
- Apple iPhone 13 128GB | 200GB monthly data | £39.99 per month | £29.99 upfront | 24 months – buy from iD Mobile
Best iPhone 13 Pro deals
Best iPhone 13 Pro deal for data: iD from Mobiles.co.uk
This is our favourite plan out for data right now – £52.99 a month isn't bad at all for unlimited data, with only £49 upfront.
While this may look like a lot, the upfront and the monthly cost combined means this works out the cheapest overall for a 24 month plan.
- Apple iPhone 13 Pro 128GB | Unlimited data | £52.99 per month | £49 upfront | 24 months – buy from iD/ Mobiles.co.uk
Best iPhone 13 Pro deal for upfront cost: Three from Fonehouse
This comes with less data than the contract above but Three still give you 100GB which for most people is plenty.
With nothing to pay upfront, this a £53-per-month cost is a pretty decent deal for the iPhone 13 Pro.
- Apple iPhone 13 Pro 128GB | 100GB data | £53 per month | £0 upfront | 24 months- buy from Three/Fonehouse
Best iPhone 13 Pro deal for low monthly cost: iD from Mobiles.co.uk
The lower your monthly plan goes, the bigger the upfront hit, somewhere in between there is a compromise.
You can pay as little as £43.99 a month for the iPhone 13 Pro, but you will have to spend £99 on the upfront cost.
- Apple iPhone 13 Pro 128GB | 50GB monthly data | £43.99 per month | £99 upfront | 24 months – buy from iD/Mobiles.co.uk

How long does it take for iPhone 13 orders to arrive?
If you ordered it as soon as it was available to pre-order, you should have received your iPhone 13 after around a fortnight.
On Friday, March 18, the new green iPhone 13 and 13 Pro along with iPhone SE begin shipping.
Pre-orders went live on Friday, September 17th last year, and the range officially hit shelves on Friday, September 24th.
Since then, the wait times for Apple's latest devices have varied wildly, particularly on the Pro models.
But while Apple appeared to have been hit by the global chip shortage last October, the company seems to have recovered now (at least temporarily).
This means that if you're based in the UK and order an iPhone 13 this March, you should receive it after just two days, unless you want a green one.
