iPhone 12 Pro

If you want an iPhone with Pro camera features but can't afford to pay £1000+ for the latest iPhone 14 series, the iPhone 12 Pro is a great alternative! 

The iPhone 12 Pro has all the Pro features that many love, including Dolby Vision HDR recording, three 12-megapixel cameras, Portrait Lighting effects and a LiDAR scanner for improved AR experiences. 

With 5G connectivity, a 6.1-inch OLED Super Retina XDR display and an A14 Bionic chip, there isn't a great deal of difference between the two iPhone models in terms of functionality and features. 

For a reasonable £489.99 or as little as £22.99 a month, it's much more affordable than the new iPhone 14 series!

iPhone SE (2022)

The iPhone SE 3rd generation (2022) is still an excellent option for those who want an Apple phone without the high price tag.

As the iPhone 14 range has ditched the Mini, the 3rd generation SE is still the smallest, newest iPhone model on the market.

This small but mighty iPhone model has some superb features, like 4K video recording, 5G, Retina HD Display, and an A15 Bionic chip (also in the iPhone 13).
