In fact, straight after Tim Cook announced the release of iPhone 12 deals, both of these older handsets saw £100+ fall off their price tags. And now, finally, those price drops have spread out to iPhone XR deals on contract.
And while that now makes the iPhone XR an extremely affordable phone, we would still suggest going for the iPhone 11. That’s because despite the difference in specs, iPhone 11 deals really aren’t that much more expensive right now.
For example, while you could get 100GB of data on the iPhone XR for £32 a month…it only costs £34 on the 11. Considering the cost between the two devices has closed in so much, upgrading to the iPhone 11 seems like an easy choice to make.
Below we’ve listed the best offers on both handsets with similar pricing and data caps.

What are the iPhone 11 and XR like?
As one of the best-value iPhones currently on the market (even with the iPhone 11 and now the even newer iPhone 12 out!) there’s a lot to love with the iPhone XR. Above everything, the battery stands out. Despite its age, it has a very healthy battery for Apple at 2942mAh.
Sporting Apple’s Liquid Retina display and a powerful A12 Bionic chip, going for this more budget flagship doesn’t have to mean taking a hit on specs. It might no longer be Apple’s newest, but it’s still very much capable.

That means an upgrade to a dual camera set-up, with wide angle lens and optical zooms. An increased battery capacity of 3110mAh and Apple’s second most powerful CPU available after the one found in the iPhone 12.
