The best iPhone XR deals in August 2019

Out of Apple's latest devices, iPhone XR deals have proved to be the most popular and it is clear to see why. With Apple consistently offering some of the most expensive phones around, a 'budget flagship' is a refreshing change for iPhones.

And for those trying to find cheap iPhone XR deals, the great news is that this phone is dropping in price. And, with the iPhone 11 just around the corner we can expect it to drop even further in price.

We're currently seeing iPhone XR deals at price tags of as low as £28 (with some big upfront costs of course). And with prices as low as that, could we even go as far as to call this an affordable iPhone...almost.

With the largest battery of any iPhone, an array of different colours and a powerful A12 bionic chip, the iPhone XR is arguably the best choice for iPhone fans right now, beating out the iPhone XS and its lofty price tag.

Ready to see all of the impressive iPhone XR deals in the UK? Well, with TechRadar's helping hand - and, more crucially, our price comparison chart (custom-made of course) - you can be sure that you won't pay be paying more than you need to for your new iPhone deal.

Lots of fun colours to choose from
Reasons to Avoid
Chunkier design than some

The home button is dead, long live the notch! It features on what immediately becomes the best value iPhone on the market, with the iPhone XR having all the appearance of more premium models but at a considerably lower cost.

There's no dual lens here, but the main camera does have a 12MP sensor and smart HDR. Excellent photos - in low light or otherwise - are more or less guaranteed. The innards are as finely tuned as ever and call is shallow but we're loving that clutch of new colours. A welcome change from muted Space Grey and Rose Gold.

If you've been an iPhone user for a while and have been waiting for an end to the customary incremental upgrades Apple usually launches, then 2018 may be the time to upgrade your iPhone.
