Here's what it means to you

    For all customers on non-Clubcard Price deals, each year from 2024, your basic monthly usage price or basic monthly price (depending on your contract type) will rise in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) rate of inflation published in January + 3.9%.

    If the CPI rate is negative, we'll only apply the 3.9%. The price rise will come into effect on bills dated on or after April of each year, unless otherwise stated.

    For all customers on Clubcard Price deals, your basic monthly usage price (for data, minutes and texts within your allowances) will stay frozen for the length of your contract only.

    • How big is the iPhone 12?

      The iPhone 12 has a 6.1” display making it the same size as the iPhone 13 and iPhone 11, however it is lighter than the 11 by about the weight of a slice of bread. The iPhone 12 is larger than the iPhone 13 mini but smaller than the iPhone 13 Pro Max. If you’re looking for a smaller phone, explore our iPhone SE offers.

    • Is the iPhone 12 waterproof?

      The iPhone 12 is not waterproof but is splash, water, and dust resistant. It’s rated IP68, meaning you can take the device to a maximum depth of 6 metres for up to 30 minutes.

      This is the same rating as the iPhone 13 range.

    • How can I charge an iPhone 12?

      The iPhone 12 comes with a lightning to USB-C cable, meaning you can charge it via a USB-C charger. Apple recommends using a 20-Watt charger. This device does not come with a charging adapter and must be bought separately.

      To charge it wirelessly, use a Qi-compatible charging mat or a MagSafe charger.

    • How different is the iPhone 12 to the iPhone 13?

      The main difference between the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 13 is what’s under the hood, the A15 Bionic chip. While the A14 is still extremely powerful, the 15 pushes things over the edge creating a more immersive computing and gaming experience.
