New hotness: iPhone SE (2020) (£419+ at Apple)

Pre-ordering from Apple directly is the fastest, most reliable way to get your iPhone SE (2020)

Though you can pre-order the brand new iPhone from your preferred carrier, we highly suggest sticking with Apple. Apple has more stock than a carrier like Vodafone or EE, as well as big-box electronics sellers. We also recommend using the Apple Store app because it can better handle the influx of orders that hit the servers the second it goes live. In previous years the app has definitely been the way to go.

Pre-ordering an iPhone can be a complicated process, especially if you're trying to make sure you get one on day one. We've pre-ordered a lot of iPhones and have a few tips to help you prepare for the process.
