Get the iPhone 15 for 50% off in rare Apple deal – EE’s surprise price cut


If you’re going bargain-hunting this Easter weekend then a new batch of deals from might catch your eye. The telecoms firm has just launched a batch of offers that slash the price of owning popular iPhones by a whopping 50 percent. Yes, you did read that correctly – this really is a half-price sale event. So how does this all really work, how much will you save and what’s the catch?

Firstly, it’s worth pointing out that the money being knocked off is for EE’s airtime and data, not the actual iPhone. It basically means that instead of paying £30 per month for unlimited data, calls and texts you’ll only pay £17.50 per month.

You then have to add the iPhone cost on top with prices starting from £20.21 for those happy to hold onto the device for three years – that price rises to £30.32 on a two-year deal.

It’s still a nice saving although there is a catch as the half-price discount only lasts for the first six months of the contract. You then have to pay the full price.

Here’s how much it saves compared to EE’s standard deals without 50 percent off.

iPhone 15 – 128GB model
EE DEAL: £17.50 data for six months (then £35)
iPHONE PRICE: £30.32 (24-month contract)
INCLUDES: Unlimited calls, texts and data
UPFRONT FEE: £30
TOTAL COST: £1,532 (excludes price rise next March)
The total saving on this deal is £105 compared to paying the full £35 price over two years for data.

It’s a very nice bonus but don’t forget to shop around before you tap the buy button. For example, Mobiles.o.uk is currently offering the iPhone 15 via the ID Network for £36.99 with unlimited data on a two-year contract.

The total price for that deal including a £9 upfront fee is just £896.76 – that’s over £600 cheaper than EE.

You could also buy the iPhone 15 from Argos for a new low price of £699 and then add an unlimited data SIM.

SMARTY, which is powered by Three, is offering an unlimited data SIM for £20 – add that to the price of the device and you’ll pay £1,179 over two years.

As a quick reminder, the iPhone 15 features a refreshed design with a matt finish, a faster A16 Bionic processor, Dynamic Island notch and USB-C charging. Want to know more? You can read our full iPhone 15 review here.
