The brand-new iPhone 15 is available to pre-order right now, and the RadioTimes.com Technology team have found some great deals for you to bag a discount or a freebie as part of your purchase.
On Tuesday 12th September, the RadioTimes.com Technology were armed with pre-prepared Aubergine Parmigiana Tortelloni (shop bought — we're not that creative) and a mug of green tea, ready for Apple's Wonderlust event to kick-off.
Rumours of the iPhone 15 have been circulating since the iPhone 14 was released last September, and speculation continued until viewers were invited to take a look at the 16th generation of Apple iPhone: the long-awaited iPhone 15. With the iPhone 15 came the iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
With all four smartphones including an improved Ultra Wideband chip, longer battery life, better camera quality, as well as feeling lighter than their predecessors, the price-tag is unsurprisingly hefty. The iPhone 15 is the most affordable model of the four, coming in at £799, the iPhone 15 costs £899, the iPhone 15 Pro begins at £999, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max is the most expensive at £1,199.
But, luckily for you, the RadioTimes.com Technology team are on hand to help you purchase the iPhone 15 for less or with an additional freebie. Finding great deals is something of our speciality — just take a look at our monthly Disney Plus deals, Apple Music offers, and Audible offers pages — so you're in good hands. Let's get started.
For more information on the Apple 2023 event, take a look at the iPhone 15 UK availability, AirPods Pro (2nd gen) release date, Apple Watch 9 release date, and Apple Watch Ultra 2 release date pages.

What's the deal: When you pre-order the brand-new iPhone 15 through O2, you'll get the chance to choose an 'Extra' (an additional freebie); these Extras include six months of Apple Music, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime, Amazon Music, Audible, McAfee, or Cafeyn.
Why we chose it: With streaming services such as Disney Plus setting you back £7.99 per month and Apple Music costing anywhere from £4.99 to £16.99, six months for free is a brilliant offer.

What's the deal: The brand-new iPhone 15s have USB-C charging ports instead of the former lightning cables. So, O2 is offering everyone the option to recycle their old cables — including lightning cables — at O2 stores nationwide.
Why we chose it: Although this next offer won't technically save you any money, it's a great deal for the environment; Virgin Media O2 research found that 48 per cent of Brits are hanging onto cables and wires which they don't need any more, with the average household hoarding four cables each. Apple is moving towards sustainability, too, with the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus being made from 100 per cent recycled cobalt with 75 per cent recycled aluminium.

What's the deal: With the ability to capture video in 4K, as well as two impressive cameras: an 8-megapixel Main camera with an f/1.6 aperture — a performance feature which means the iPhone 15 can better handle low light situations — and a 12-megapixel Ultra Wide camera with an f/2.4 aperture, it's no surprise the iPhone 15 is priced starting from £799. But what if we told you that you were able to secure £950 off?
At Three, you can save up to £950 off the iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max when you trade-in selected iPhone models.
Why we chose it: If you're pre-ordering the brand-new iPhone 15, you probably won't have much use for your old iPhone anymore — so why not make some money from it?
