iPhone 12 deals for September 2021

(Pocket-lint) - It may no longer be the newest and shiniest, but the four phones in the iPhone 12 family - the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 mini, the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max - are all still worthy of your consideration. With iPhone 13 pre-orders now going live, too, picking up an iPhone 12 may represent the best value when upgrading from your current cell. After all, you get pretty much all the latest technology in a package that's now greatly reduced due to the incoming 2021 models.

In this guide, we'll be focusing on the top iPhone 12 deals that are currently available. If you're in the market for an older model, though, don't forget to check out offers on the iPhone 11[1] or iPhone SE (2020)[2].

Best iPhone 12 deals

This is the standard model in the line, and, in our view, is the best pick for most people looking at iPhone 12. For those who don't really like the look of the mini variant, but can't justify the price tag of the Pro range, either, this is an excellent handset.

In our iPhone 12 review[3], we said: "The iPhone 12 offers many of the important things that you want from the iPhone: a decent camera, 5G, great screen, fast processor, and leaves out many of the 'nice to haves' like 60fps video recording, a telephoto lens, or the LiDAR scanner." iPhone 12 is available in blue, green, black, white, lavender and PRODUCT(RED).

  • 128GB - £849 | GBP849
  • 256GB - £949 | GBP949

Best iPhone 12 mini deals

First arriving through the iPhone 12 lineup is the mini. This is essentially a standard iPhone 12 model, packing roughly the same specs into a reduced form factor.

In our iPhone 12 mini review[4], we said: "The Apple iPhone 12 mini might be the smallest of the iPhone 12 models, but it is a fantastic little device that shouldn't be underestimated. It has a lovely lightweight compact design, absolutely stunning display, great cameras, and delivers a smooth and fluid performance." You do compromise a bit of battery life and a telephoto lens, but those who want the most affordable version of the iPhone 12 series will be well served here. iPhone 12 mini is available in blue, green, black, white, lavender and PRODUCT(RED).

  • 64GB - £699 | GBP699
  • 128GB - £749 | GBP749
  • 256GB - £849 | GBP849

Best iPhone 12 Pro deals

Graduating from the standard models, you then have two more expensive, higher-spec versions of the iPhone 12 - starting with the iPhone 12 Pro.

For those who want an elite iPhone 12 experience in a size that more closely resembles the standard model, this is the pick. In our full iPhone 12 Pro review[5], we said: "The screen is stunning, the camera capability professional, and when you can use it, the download speeds with 5G, fast. There are many features here that most users won't use or need, but that's okay, this isn't for the model for them, with the iPhone 12 offering much the same experience in a cheaper package."

Best iPhone 12 Pro Max deals

If you take the package of the iPhone 12 Pro, supersize it and upgrade the cameras, you get the iPhone 12 Pro Max. 

In our iPhone 12 Pro Max review[6], we described the model as the most comprehensive and expensive in the 2020 range: "There's a lot here: the screen is massive, the cameras - being the main difference over the 12 Pro - are exceptional, and the overall performance is impressive. "Such a large phone won't be to everyone's liking, but, if you like your phone big, this delivers that without making the form-factor awkward to hold or use." iPhone 12 Pro Max is available in graphite, silver, gold, and pacific blue

  • 128GB - £1099 | GBP1099
