Here are the best Black Friday deals on iPhones 

  • OUR TOP PICK: iPhone 12 — free at T-Mobile
  • BEST FOR PHOTOSiPhone 11 Pro Max — save up to $700 at AT&T
  • BEST BUDGET PICK: iPhone SE (2020) — free at Verizon and AT&T

With not one, not two, but five new models released since April 2020 has been a huge year for the iPhone — a fact reflected in this year’s Black Friday sales.

If you wanted a bargain on one of Apple’s iconic smartphones this same time last year, the best you could do was up to $500 off. But this year, you can get some of the latest models for free in the form of credits applied to your monthly service bills — a savings of over a thousand dollars, in some cases.

From what we’ve seen so far, you’ll save the most money by going directly to your cellular carrier — retailers like Walmart and Best Buy are running some just-OK deals, but Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile easily one-up them with their own stellar offers for trade-ins and/or new line activations. Also, note that unlocked iPhones are few and far between — we couldn’t find any on sale aside from the iPhone 8, which came out all the way back in 2017. 

Here’s a rundown of the top iPhone deals worth shopping for as of Nov. 13:

OUR TOP PICK: iPhone 12

T-Mobile clinches Black Friday 2020’s top iPhone deal with the offer of a free iPhone 12 when you activate a new line (or upgrade an existing one) and trade in a qualifying older model. (You’ll have to purchase the device on a monthly payment plan, and then T-Mobile will reimburse you with credits.)

If you’re a Verizon customer, you can buy one iPhone 12 and get a second one for up to $800 off with a new line, monthly payments, and select Unlimited plans. (You can also trade-in your current phone there to save up to $440.) AT&T, meanwhile, is giving shoppers up to $700 off the iPhone 12 with a new line, an unlimited plan, and an eligible trade-in.
