It doesn’t take a genius to work out why you’ve landed on this page, dear reader. You fancy a new iPhone, but the prices you’ve seen for the iPhone 8 have given you a fright and the iPhone X topped off your fear of an expensive iPhone. Grabbing an iPhone 6S deal is the obvious solution – especially now that the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals have started to drop.
A fair few new iPhones have come out since the 6S, we’ve had the 8’s, iPhone X’s and now the (rather complicatedly named) iPhone XS Max. The good news here is that these new releases have driven the prices of the iPhone 6s way, way down. Sub-£20 a month tariffs appear quite frequently now, so getting a great deal on Apple’s 2015 flagship phone makes it a great budget option if you don’t want to spend the earth on your new iPhone deal.
If you want more than the minimum of data, then check out our comparison chart below, or head straight down to our pick of the best tariffs on the web.
The 6S may be one of iPhone’s older phones now, but it still features a lot of the features we have come to expect from flagships. It has improved battery life and 3D touch, where you can press a bit harder on the screen to get a different response.

The top 5 best iPhone 6S deals in the UK this month:
We’ve gone all Top of the Pops to show you our favourite five iPhone 6S deals on the market right now – we’ll give you a clue…they’re much cheaper than the iPhone XS! Read about all of the best iPhone 6S deals here, including tariffs on EE, O2 and Vodafone.
iPhone 6S 32GB | Vodafone | £99.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 1GB data | £18pm
If what you’re looking for is a deal with a very low monthly cost, this could be for you. If you’re willing to pay a bit more upfront and give up some of that precious data you can get this contract for only £18 a month. You can’t get a former flagship Apple smartphone for much less than this. Total cost over 24 months is £531.99
iPhone 6S 32GB | Vodafone | £29.99 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 4GB data | £23pm
4GB is a reasonable amount of data to play with and the upfront cost is well worth paying for the slightly lower monthly cost overall. Because of the quadrupled data, we’d actually say that this is better value than the deal above. And you get to buy from Carphone Warehouse – one of the most trusted phone retailers in the UK Total cost over 24 months is £581.99
iPhone 6S 32GB | EE | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 9GB data | £28pm | £50 cashback
This deal is fantastic – there is no upfront cost and £28 per month is pretty reasonable for a 9GB contract. That is more than enough data for your daily streaming and internet usage. And it only gets better still when you factor in the cashback perk and the fact you’re on the UK’s fastest 4G network. Total cost over 24 months is £622.08 (after cashback)
iPhone 6S 128GB | EE | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 20GB data | £31pm
If you’re more interested in keeping all your songs, videos and photos on your memory card than you are the cloud and streaming, then this is one of the better tariffs currently out there for the 128GB handset. And you don’t even have to compromise on the data you use, as 20GB is still a massive amount to play with. This is the best of both worlds when it comes to data and storage and won’t really break the bank. Total cost over 24 months is £744
iPhone 6S 32GB | O2 | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 30GB data | £38pm | £240 cashback
The Three network has gone completely off the boil where the iPhone 6S is concerned, but O2 has willingly filled the gap for big data. 30GB is much cheaper than trying to go for all-you-can-eat data and you won’t even have to pay anything for the privilege when you sign up – in fact, you actually get £240 back over the contract. Total cost over 24 months is £672 (after £240 cashback)
It may be very similar to its predecessor, but there’s no denying that the iPhone 6s makes a fantastic alternative to the more expensive Apple devices like the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. The phone works fluidly at nearly every task and will cost you a lot less than Apple’s current flagships. Low end cost with high end features
