PHONE provider Mobiles Phones Direct is currently offering an impressive iPhone deal on the Three network.
You can pick up up an ‘as new’ iPhone 12 with 100GB of monthly data for just £24 per month.
That’s an astonishingly low monthly rate on a phone that was Apple’s flagship just a couple of years ago, but if that upfront cost is too high for you, it’s worth looking at the £27 per month plan, which comes with a lower upfront cost of £9.
Last week we covered a similar deal on the ‘as-new’ iPhone 11 from the same provider for £20 per month – this one’s a little pricier but of course, it sets you up a new handset.
The iPhone 12 also happens to be the first smartphone from Apple that comes with 5G connectivity.
The caveat here is that this is a refurbished device: one that Mobile Phones Direct is at pains to point out is in ‘as new’ condition.
While refurbished tech has often been treated a little squeamishly by consumers or years, it’s seen a recent resurgence as the cost of living crisis has left shoppers with less cash to throw around.
Many UK phone providers now offer refurbished mobiles alongside new ones, with a reduced monthly and upfront cost.
It’s certainly a great way of picking up Apple tech – which obviously never comes cheap – for much less.
If you’re weighing up between these two deals from Mobile Phones Direct, we suggest you read our iPhone 11 vs iPhone 12 explainer, which offers an in-depth comparison of these two handsets.
