All the best Black Friday iPhone deals so far

UPDATE: Nov. 17, 2021, 6 E.T. If you’re looking to save on an iPhone, look no further. We’ve updated this post with the best iPhone deals of this Black Friday season so far.

  • iPhone 13, the latest and greatest — save up to $800 at AT&T and Verizon

  • iPhone 12 mini, a mini phone with big savings that require no trade-in — $314.99 $629.99 (save $314.99 at AT&T)

  • iPhone SE, the classic budget pick — free with a new line and unlimited plan at Verizon


Somehow another year has passed, and now, the iPhone is a teenager. In the iPhone 13, you’ll find longer battery life, a brand-new cinematic filming mode, and (thanks to Black Friday), some serious savings.

Whether you’re ready to upgrade to the newest iteration of the iPhone or want to see if you can snag some more savings on an iPhone 12 now that it’s the “old” model, we’ve got you covered with all the best Black Friday deals on this Apple classic.

How to shop Black Friday iPhone sales

The best bet to get the biggest possible savings on iPhones is to buy direct from carriers. This is no different than Black Friday seasons of years past. What is different, however, is the general availability of iPhones. Due to supply chain shortages, tech of all sorts is expected to be much harder to come by this year. What that means is that if you see your carrier is running a deal on an iPhone, take it.

Verizon already lists the iPhone 13 Pro Max as being on backorder until mid-December, while the more budget-friendly iPhone SE is completely sold out at AT&T at the time of writing. In other words, you shouldn’t be expecting a guaranteed deal on the new or older iPhones a week before Christmas, as there’s a decent chance they’ll be backordered or out of stock.

If you want to buy straight from the Apple Store, we have seen some trade-in savings or gift card incentives in the past, though nothing’s cropped up this year yet. So far, they’re only offering their own special carrier deals for Verizon, T-Mobile/Sprint, and AT&T customers. We’ve made sure to note the specifics of each below.

One really great way to stay vigilant about who’s offering what deals and when is to check back in with this post, as we’ll be updating it frequently as Black Friday and Cyber Monday draw nearer.
