Remember when phones were phone-size and not a small tablet in your pocket? Apple remembers, as the iPhone 12 Mini is available for pre-order right now...

The Mini-me to the iPhone 12’s Dr. Evil counterpart (as someone on the Stuff team summed up in GIF form while live tweeting the unveiling event) - the specs are anything but mini.

So how about it – interested? We’ve gone hunting for the best deals out there right now.

Be sure to keep that small jewel safe with a case and screen protector! Here are the best options.

Stuff recommends...

Right, let’s set out the ground rules for making the most of your money with an iPhone 12 Mini deal.

You’ve got one simple question to answer – how much do you care about the added extras?

If you want to get the contract for dirt cheap and choose what extras to get t(he likes of Apple Music and buying your own pair of AirPods), then that’s no problem. However, if you want to just pay for everything for the full iPhone experience in one monthly sum, it may look a little steeper, but getting the phone contract and paying for these services separately will cost way more.

So, we’ve made recommendations for both of these paths. Have a think and scroll down.
