iPhones come in a range of models designed to fit your pocket and budget, but how much will Apple’s current offerings cost you? Here’s a breakdown of the iPhone lineup, including which is the cheapest and most expensive of Apple’s iPhones.
What is the cheapest iPhone?
If you’re thinking of buying an iPhone today, but don’t have a big budget, the cheapest model available is the iPhone SE (2022). It’s also the one with the smallest screen (4.7in) and the last remaining device to retain the physical home button.
It’s also possible to save money on other iPhone handsets if you prefer a bigger screen and Face ID. Apple is currently selling the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and iPhone 13 mini at a discount from their original launch. So you can pick up a top-of-the-line model from the last two years and save some money at the same time. If you don’t need the latest and greatest, then the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and iPhone 13 mini are all brilliant iPhones.
It is also possible to buy cheaper iPhones from Apple’s refurbished store. These iPhones have been refurbished, but come with a one-year warranty. Another option is not to buy your iPhone from Apple, but to look for offers from one of the various Apple retailers. We’re tracking deals on all iPhone handsets – check out our roundup of the best iPhone deals this month.

iPhone SE price
The iPhone SE (2022) is currently Apple’s cheapest iPhone. It’s ideal for those who want a smaller iPhone and a Home button.
Here’s how much the iPhone SE (2022) costs if you buy one from Apple:
The next cheapest iPhone is the iPhone 12, which launched in 2019 but is still a reasonably good handset for anyone who doesn’t need the maximum power. Just be aware that the base iPhone 12 model starts with 64GB of storage, which we think is a bit tight.
Here’s how much the iPhone 12 costs if you buy one from Apple:
The iPhone 13 mini should be the last of the smallest iPhones we’ll see for a while, as the mini model has been dropped from the iPhone 14 lineup. So if you want the smallest iPhone you can get, this one- this is for you.
Here’s how much the iPhone 13 mini costs if you buy one from Apple:
There isn’t a huge difference between the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14, so if you don’t care about having a slightly better version of the same processor and features like Action Mode, then you should get the cheapest handset.
Here’s how much the iPhone 13 costs if you buy one from Apple:
If you’re willing to spend a little more and want the latest iPhone, you’ll want to consider the iPhone 14 and its bigger brother the iPhone 14 Plus. If you want the ultimate iPhone handset, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are the ones to consider.
iPhone 14 price
As we said above, there isn’t a huge difference between the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14, but there are a few new features you might be interested in. For example, we like the Action mode, which lets you shoot video while on the move, and there’s also the new Emergency SOS feature.
Here’s how much the iPhone 14 costs if you buy one from Apple:
The iPhone 14 basically comes in two sizes: the smaller handset with its 6.1-inch display and a larger version with a 6.7-inch display. This is the first time that Apple has offered a larger screen with the standard iPhone. So if you’re looking for a phablet-style iPhone, without having to pay the premium attached to the iPhone 14 Pro Max, this is the one for you.
Here’s how much the iPhone 14 Plus costs if you buy one from Apple:
If you need the best build quality and specs Apple can offer, there’s no other option than the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. These are two high-end powerhouses that pack all the tricks Apple can squeeze into a handset. They do, however, have prices to match.
iPhone 14 Pro price
The iPhone 14 Pro is the same size as the iPhone 14, but the processor is a newer generation, and therefore more powerful, and the camera much better. There are plenty of other upgrades that make it a better handset, but it comes with a much higher price tag.
Here’s how much the iPhone 14 Pro costs if you buy one from Apple:
Here’s how much the iPhone 14 Pro Max costs if you buy one from Apple:
iPhone 14 Pro Max 128GB: $1,099/£1,199/AU$1,899/CA$1,549
iPhone 14 Pro Max 256GB: $1,119/£1,309/AU$2,099/CA$1,699

How to get a cheaper iPhone
If all of those iPhone prices seem a little high to you, it’s still worth considering a refurbished model. These usually come with warranties and money back guarantees that make it like buying a new iPhone, but with the added benefit of being cheaper.
