The Best Places To Pre-Order Your iPhone 11

Stock inevitably runs short at launch time, but there are more places than ever to pre-order iPhone from now.

At a media-packed launch event in California this week Apple unveiled the latest iPhone models; iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Max.  All three are available to pre-order in the UK from 1pm on Friday September 13th, with the phones officially launching on Friday 20th September.

When the very first iPhone launched there was only one mobile network you could buy it from; O2.  That’s no longer the case, with the iPhone now available to buy from all major networks, a number of MVNOs, and a whole host of UK retailers both online and on the high street.

With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of the best places to order your shiny new iPhone 11 from, including who they are and some of the perks you get from them.  All of these will have the iPhone 11 models available to pre-order from 1pm Friday September 13th.

Mobile Networks

EE have recently launched unlimited data plans, plus they offer a host of extra perks when you join including six months free Apple Music.

Vodafone are probably the best known mobile network in the world. In addition to unlimited data plans, they also offer inclusive Spotify or Sky Sports Mobile with selected price plans.
