Best iPhone deals: Save on iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro Max and more

Even though iPhones are some of the best smartphones on the market, they can get pretty pricey, especially if you’re going for some of the latest models. Luckily, while there aren’t always a lot of great direct discounts to be had, you can certainly find some great carrier deals even on the best iPhones in Apple’s lineup. To that end, we’ve gone out and found some of the best iPhone deals we could find, whether through carriers or unlocked, and collected them all below so you don’t have to do the legwork. That said, if you’re on a bit of a budget, then you could check out our list of the best refurbished iPhone deals instead, or you can check out some of these other great Apple deals to pair with your new iPhone.

iPhone 15 (128GB, locked to AT&T) — $730, was $830 (plus up to $700 off w/ trade-in)

The Apple iPhone 15 finally brings with it Dynamic Island which we’ve only previously seen on the Pro range. It’s a real game changer at times and is very convenient. Alongside that, the Apple iPhone 15 has the Ceramic Shield front to keep it more protected while its 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display promises to be up to two times brighter than the iPhone 14 in the sun. There’s also a 48MP main camera with 2x telephoto lens to help you take great shots. The A16 Bionic chip has plenty of processing power to aid with software adjustments.

iPhone 15 Pro Max (256GB, locked to AT&T) — $1,100, was $1,200 (plus save up to $1,000 w/ trade-in)

The Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max has a vast 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion support to ensure great refresh rates and an always-on display. The Dynamic Island continues to be super useful at times, while the whole thing is powered by the A17 Pro chip to ensure that performance is fantastic. Want to be able to play Resident Evil 4 on the move? You’ll soon be able to do that with the Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max. It also has the new customizable action button so you can set up a shortcut to an essential feature, while the 48MP main camera is great for taking photos and has an impressive 5x telephoto lens.

iPhone XR (64GB, Black, locked to Cricket Wireless) — $304, was ~$500+ (plus trade-in)

The iPhone XR is definitely an older model, but you can get a great deal on one right now if you’re willing to take the black coloration and use Cricket Wireless. While the phone’s “normal” price is a bit hard to determine due to limited availability and every color having a different price point, we can estimate that this phone would normally run you a little over $500. The Apple iPhone XR is still pretty stylish for its age. It has a large 6.1-inch LCD screen with 1,792 x 828 resolution with Liquid Retina technology ensuring it looks super sharp. Powered by the A12 Bionic chip, it’s starting to show its age but still has potential. There’s also a 12MP back camera that can shoot 4K videos while the front-facing camera is 7MP and ideal for selfie-taking.

iPhone 11 (64GB, Yellow, locked to Cricket Wireless) — $265, was $559 (plus trade-in)

Once the greatest, the Apple iPhone 11 still holds its own. It has a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina HD screen with 64GB of memory and up to 17 hours of battery life. It has dual 12MP ultra-wide and wide cameras with a Night Mode helping you get the most out of low light situations. For this deal, you’ll have to get the yellow coloration and stick with Cricket Wireless, but if you’re already with Cricket and want a slight upgrade, this is the phone to go for. You can even tap “Trade-In and Save” to save more.

iPhone 12 Pro Max (128GB, Gold, locked to Cricket Wireless) — $652, was $1,099

The Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max has a large 6.7-inch display with its OLED panel looking gorgeous. Incredibly bright and crisp, it’s hard to fault. Ideal for multitasking if a little cumbersome to hold, the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max is a true powerhouse in terms of looks. It’s powered by the A14 Bionic processor but there’s 5G support and a Ceramic Shield to keep you happy. For the cameras, enjoy a 12MP sensor that’s larger than before along with great software additions and an ultrawide lens too. Count on Dolby Vision HDR video support to make moving images look even better.

The best iPhone 15 cases in 2024: our 20 favorites
New cases for the iPhone 15.

The iPhone 16 may be only a few months away now, but Apple's iPhone 15 is still a great buy. It may even turn out to be a rare gem in the churn of year-over-year upgrades. This time around, Apple packed in some significant improvements compared to its 2022 predecessor, including the new 48-megapixel sensor and new 2x optical zoom, making for one of the biggest camera upgrades to come to a standard model since the iPhone 11 adopted the dual-lens camera design in 2019.

However, just because the iPhone 15 is the most affordable pick in Apple's new lineup doesn't mean you shouldn't consider adding some protection. Apple's Ceramic Shield glass is durable, but it's not indestructible, and it's only on the front display — the back of the phone is made from normal glass that will shatter or crack quite easily if you drop your iPhone, as well as collect scratches from the bumps and scrapes of everyday life. The good news is that the popularity of the iPhone means you'll never be faced with a shortage of choices for the best and most stylish protection for your device. In fact, there are so many different companies making iPhone cases that it can be overwhelming, so we've rounded up a few of the best picks below, from clear and classy cases that let the iPhone's colorful back shine through to rugged tactical cases that will serve you well through life's most extreme adventures.
