Apple is expected to launch a new low-cost iPhone later this year, but as long as you’re willing to buy an older model, you can already bag an Apple smartphone for as little as 50p a day.
British retailer Carphone Warehouse will offer the iPhone 4 on a two-year contract for just £17 a month from tomorrow, May 10, with no upfront cost. It will be the cheapest iPhone tariff available in the United Kingdom.
The iPhone included in the deal is an 8GB iPhone 4, so it is more than two years old, and come this fall there will be three younger iPhones available. But those who have found the iPhone just too expensive in recent years now have the opportunity to snap one up on the cheap.
Carphone Warehouse is offering deals on both Three and O2, which both cost £17 a month, but come with different benefits. The Three deal gives customers 500 minutes of talk time, unlimited texts, and 250MB of data; while the O2 deal offers 300 minutes, unlimited texts, and 500MB of data.
“Launching the cheapest iPhone tariff is an exciting move for Carphone Warehouse,” said Graham Stapleton, the retailer’s chief operating officer.
“Many of our customers want the opportunity to own the iconic Apple handset but at a tariff that works for them. Even though smartphones are mainstream, there are still thousands of customers who are upgrading from a feature phone to a smartphone, and this deal is perfect for them.”
