Found 15th Dec 2017
For anybody not looking to splash hundreds on a new iPhone in the one go - Apple offer an interest free payment programme (subject to loan approval via their partner Barclays). Prices start from £31.50 per month - for 20 months - for the IPhone 8 with a £69 upfront cost. Only available in store. Also check out the Apple Upgrade Programme - apple.com/uk/shop/iphone/iphone-upgrade-program. This includes Apple care and allows you to upgrade the phone 11 months into the repayment term to essentially start again with the new phone.

Apologies this was changed whilst in review, I had originally posted 31.50 - also this is to appeal to people who maybe wouldn’t be able to afford £699 upfront, where a phone contract would incorporate interest.

As stated in the notes it’s more for somebody who doesn’t want to/can’t pay the full amount in one go - try find this example with a 1 year manufacturers warranty, allowing monthly repayments with no interest - I’ll wait, start with giffgaff

DFS have a Sale on don't you know!
Total cost here is £1031.76

That's an extra cost of £332.76. That's a monthly equivalent of £13.87 for 8gb data and unlimited calls & texts on EE.

It might be a better all round deal for many


or an even cheaper option

£1009.76 total cost for 15gb of data EE network but £98.00 required up front. That works out £12.94 per month for the SIM card

Your deal does offer one distinct advantage. Any issues on the phone will be dealt with directly with Apple which generally is a good experience. If your current SIM card is costing £18-£20 per month, the extra cost may be worthwhile paying
Poor Emily - Got the I Dont Like Apple response! Bless.
Thanks for sharing none-the-less!
Just wish I could afford the inflated prices! I HAD one - ONCE - got nicked - couldnt afford to replace it - so went android and got a CUBOT !?!!?!? LOL! From the rich to the poor!
