The iPhone 11 series were Apple’s brand new set of iPhones for 2019 and they were incredibly popular. However, in October 2020 Apple discontinued all but the smaller iPhone 11 it introduced the iPhone 12 series, which includes the iPhone 12 mini, the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. You can find the best deals for the iPhone 12 handsets here.
This means that Apple is still selling the colourful iPhone 11 – now at the lower price of £599/$599 rather than £729/$699. That’s a pretty decent saving, but Apple’s not the only place selling the iPhone 11.
This could mean that you can now pick up an iPhone 11 for a lot less than you would have paid a month or two ago. But you should be careful to take not of what Apple is selling that handset for now – because some resellers will quote the original price to make the deal look better than it is.
Also, the fact that Apple no longer sells the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to find one for sale. While it’s possible that stocks will be in sort surply, it is possible that resellers will be selling them off to make room for the new models. So you could pick up a good deal. Then again, sometimes shortages of a particular model can mean they become more expensive.
The important thing here is to be clear about what the iPhone is worth and what you could be getting if you spent your money on one of the newer models – which have lower prices than the equivalent iPhone 11 models or twice the storage depending on how you look at it.
Fortunately we’re here to guide you through the best deals on the iPhone 11, whether you’re looking to buy SIM-free or on contract.
The Macworld team have searched up and down the web for the best deals, offers and discounts on the entire 11 range, so you don’t have to.

Before we begin: We are hopeful that there will be some great deals in time for Black Friday (which is expected to take up much November this year). We discuss when the best time to buy an iPhone is here.
Best iPhone 11 deals
Prior to the arrival of the iPhone 12 we were seeing £50 off the iPhone 11 if you bought one from Amazon, Currys PC World, or John Lewis. Those deals have now gone – but if you had saved £50 then you might be kicking yourself now as Apple now has even more money off.
Luckily a number of resellers are still discounting the iPhone 11 Pro and the 11 Pro Max. You can get a iPhone 11 Pro, 64GB for £919 (£130 off) at Amazon. John Lewis, Currys PC World, and Very also have discounts. You can get a iPhone 11 Pro Max, 64GB for £999 (£150 off) at Amazon and John Lewis.

The best iPhone 11 deals
Our price comparison widgets below list the best available deals for each model. We include the best SIM-free and contract deals. Whilst a contract can seem less daunting as it’s not a lot of money upfront, the total cost of ownership (TCO – what you end up paying over the whole contract) will probably end up higher, so think about what’s best for your budget and weigh up the pros and cons of each option.
It’s also worth considering bundle deals, which offer provide striking value. Three, for example, throws in a pair of Beats Solo 3 headphones or AirPods with some of its plans. Head to Three to see its iPhone 11 bundles (click on other plans).

The first place to check for deals and offers should be Apple, firstly because that’ll tell you what the price of the iPhone 11 should be right now (at launch it was from £729/$699, but now it’s £599/$599) and secondly because, if you have an older iPhone to trade in, Apple will give you up to £170 off your new phone.
