If you want to grab the tiniest iPhone 12 at the tiniest price, you’ve come to the right place. We’re going through every retailer and network to reveal the best iPhone 12 mini deals.

Apple officially dropped prices on the iPhone 12 mini when it launched the iPhone 13 range. The entry-level price is now down to £579, compared to £699. Retailers will now also want to get rid of old stock to make room for the iPhone 13 mini.

That’s why retailers such as Amazon, John Lewis, Carphone Warehouse and Very are not only mirroring Apple’s price but in many cases beating it with appealing discounts. Amazon, for example, has reduced the entry-level iPhone 12’s price to £529, amounting to an additional £50 discount on the lowered price; one model is as low as £516.97.

On the contract front we’re seeing great offers too. For instance, you can pick up a free pair of AirPods with the iPhone 12 mini from Virgin or Mobile Phones Direct, which is also bundling the Nintendo Switch!

Read on to find the biggest deals and discounts on the iPhone 12 mini both on contract and SIM-free. We’re separately covering iPhone 12, 12 Pro and Pro Max deals. And if you’re after the newest handsets, here’s where to get the best deals on the iPhone 13 range.

About the iPhone 12 mini

Despite its size, the 12 mini packs power – most notably in the new A14 Bionic processor and Neural Engine, which significantly boosts performance and image processing capabilities.

In his review of the 12 mini, Macworld editor David Price said: “The 12 mini is the best of both worlds, combining the all-screen design of recent iPhones with the petite chassis of the older ones. It also happens to be brilliantly featured and specced, with superb cameras and processing power to burn.”

As for those cameras? You get dual 12MP-wide and ultra-wide sensors on the back with 2x optical zoom and a 12MP front camera. The 12 mini also supports 4K video recording at up to 60fps on both rear and selfie cameras.

The iPhone 12 mini features a Ceramic Shield front, glass back, and an aluminium frame, while the top-tier Pro and Pro Max add a textured matte glass on the back and a stainless steel band to the mix. Don’t forget to pick up a protective case for your iPhone 12 – see the best ones here.
