Apple today has two new smartphones on offer, including the mighty iPhone 12 Pro Max and the pocket-sized iPhone 12 mini. This smaller device could prove extremely popular because not only is it easier to use with one hand, but it’s also the cheapest of the range. The Mini costs £ 699, which is £ 400 less than the Pro Max, and despite its affordable cost and Diddy design, it still offers an impressive punch through. For your money, you get a 5.4-inch OLED screen, a fast A14 Bionic processor, and a perfect dual lens camera.
Thanks to Apple’s Ceramic Shield technology, the design is also more durable. This device has access to the latest 5G data speeds transmitting the internet to the phone at speeds over 300Mbps.
Express.co.uk recently tested the iPhone 12 mini. You can find our full thoughts here.
If this device is your fancy, there are plenty of deals in the market that make it a very tempting purchase, including half-price contracts and free AirPods.
Apple stores also stay open for ‘Click and Collect’ So you can easily order online and pick up the device without having to wait.
Here are some of the best deals currently available on the iPhone 12 mini.

THREE MOBILE: Three is offering half price offers for the first six months of the contract. That means you can get an iPhone 12 mini for just 29 euros per month (for the first six months).
It’s worth noting that after that initial period, things soar to over £ 59 per month for the remainder of the 24 month contract. So make sure you pay that higher price before signing up for the half price contract.
Three are also bundling a pair of AirPods with this deal, valued at £ 159.
VODAFONE: Vodafone is offering something new through its trade-in program. If you have an iPhone X, XS, XS MAX or XR, you can transfer it to the cellular network against payment of your monthly bill.
In fact, there’s up to £ 15 a month on new contracts, which means you can own an iPhone 12 mini on Vodafone’s Unlimited Max plan, which includes fast 5G speeds, for £ 46 a month.
EE: EE has a number of offerings, including the new iPhone 12 mini on the Full Works plan. This package includes unlimited and unlimited mobile data as well as access to Apple Music, Apple TV + and Apple Arcade for a fixed price.
The iPhone 12 mini 5G 64GB is available from EE for £ 71 per month plus a £ 30 upfront fee for the complete work. If that sounds a bit expensive, the network also sells the Mini with 100GB of data for £ 64 a month.
VIRGIN MEDIA: Virgin Media’s iPhone Mini contracts start at £ 31 per month, although this is based on a 36 month contract and only contains 1GB of data.
Customers who purchase a new iPhone 12 mini on a freestyle contract will be upgraded to 5G for free once Virgin Media’s 5G services are available. The company also offers AirPods for an additional £ 1 per month on your contract.
SKY MOBILE: Sky has a number of incentives for customers who buy the iPhone 12 mini, including duplicate dates on some plans, plus £ 30 off AirPods.
These deals mean you can put the Mini in your pocket for £ 30 a month, including 4GB of data.
APPLE: Apple is offering zero percent interest on its iPhone 12 mini, which means you can buy one and pay for it over 24 months. Prices start at just £ 29.12, although this can be reduced if you have an older iPhone to trade in. It’s worth noting that this doesn’t include any dates, minutes, or texts so you’ll have to add this to the monthly cost over a SIM-only plan.
