Tariffs are flexible so you can choose any duration from 3 months to 36 months.
You are not forced to take 36 months.
These changes are driven due to the higher prices of handsets.

The 36 months is designed to make the £1000+ phones more affordable. The problem with that is that every year new, shinier and better (supposedly) handsets come out and there could well be a lot of buyer regret being stuck in a 36 month contract (although you are free to upgrade at any time, finances permitting)
