Shopping for a new iPhone can be a lengthy and sometimes stressful process. There’s a lot to consider between deciding which model to get and looking for ways to save money on your purchase.
Thankfully, carriers and even Apple constantly rotate promotions on all Apple’s current iPhone models. That means you’re not locked into getting whatever the newest (and most expensive) iPhone is, but you can find deals on models including the iPhone SE, iPhone 11, iPhone 12, and the iPhone 13.. And, you can of course get deals on the latest iPhone 14 models, including the iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
You’ll notice that many carrier deals have the potential to net you a free iPhone, assuming you have the right type of phone to trade in and sign up for the right unlimited plan. Naturally, the devil’s in the details, er, fine print, for any smartphone deal. But that’s why we’re here.
Below you’ll find the best deals we can currently find with US carriers, as well as with Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart.
The best iPhone deals
At AT&T, you can get an iPhone 14 Pro Max for up to $1,000 off when you have an eligible trade-in device. Instead of paying $30.56 per month on your new iPhone, you could pay as little as $2.78 per month with this deal.
Over at T-Mobile, both new and existing customers can get a new iPhone 14 when you trade in an eligible device on the carrier’s Go5G plan. To get this deal, you’ll have to call a certain number, so be sure to dial the proper number to get your free iPhone.
