Despite their recent jump in price, iPhone 8 deals are waaaaaay more affordable than the eye-wateringly expensive iPhone X. It was only in June when you could get some brilliant EE 30GB tariffs that were some of the cheapest overall prices you could pay for the fantastic iPhone 8. They're gone now, with nothing much filling the void. We're keeping our fingers crossed that deals fall again by the end of the summer – are we really going to have to wait until Black Friday before we see some bargains?
Despite being the X's cheaper brethren, the iPhone 8 still cost a pretty penny when it was released last year. Was it a mere coincidence that the price dropped around the same time the new Samsung Galaxy S9 was being released? We think not! But that's great news for Apple fans.

Top 5 best iPhone 8 deals you can buy in the UK today:
When the iPhone 8 hit the shelves, we were doing everything possible to prepare people that they were going to have to spend big to get the 2017 Apple iPhone. But as you'll see, you can already get this brilliant iPhone for less than £1000 over the two years and there are some fantastic deals to be snapped up…
iPhone 8 deals: how much does the phone cost?
The SIM-free price of the new iPhone 8 is £699. That's £100 more than the iPhone 7 cost when it launched in the UK 12 months ago, so while this is not the iPhone X, nor is it what you'd call a cheap alternative. To get the phone on a 24 month contract you'll obviously have to pay a fair whack more than that, so depending on which tariff suits you best you may or may not be better off buying SIM free with a SIM only deal.
Don't expect a revolution with the iPhone 8. It's essentially a tweaked iPhone 7 with a few enhancements and one or two upgrades. For that reason we wouldn't particularly recommend this phone to anyone with an iPhone 7 – but for those with older phones this could make a timely upgrade if the price of the iPhone X makes you want to weep.
