Not in the U.K? Here's how to pre-order iPhone SE in the U.S., and Canada.

Apple Store

Apple's online store is ready to accept your orders to ship initially for March 31. The UK Apple Store isn't dealing with carriers so you're just giving them your money and they're going to send you a phone. The point of order is also a good time to add AppleCare+ to look after your new iPhone SE in case the worst happens.

Carphone Warehouse

Carphone Warehouse is the largest retailer of its kind in the UK and has been an iPhone retailer since the very beginning, The new iPhone SE will be available there either in SIM free form or with a carrier attachment. Carphone Warehouse deals with Vodafone, EE and O2, and often will serve up deals the carriers themselves won't offer directly. So it's a great place to not only compare, but also to save a few pounds a month.

The carriers - O2, Three, Vodafone and EE

As ever, the UKs biggest carriers will all be offering Apple's latest smartphone. O2 has been the longest supporter, and continues with the iPhone SE. If you're getting a new contract or a new phone as an upgrade to your existing one, the carriers may be the simplest route to go down.

Online retailer Clove has already announced its plans to sell the iPhone SE and is an alternative to the Apple Store or Carphone Warehouse to get a SIM free, unlocked iPhone. The best option is to check which of the three would ship it to you the quickest, and go with that one. With the influx the Apple Store gets initially, shipping dates on popular colors and storage sizes can quickly push back. If Clove can get you one sooner, go for it.
