Want an iPhone 6S before the holidays are over? Good news! The smartphone is currently on sale for $1 at Best Buy with a two-year contract.

The usual $200 down payment has been dropped to $1, but the deal comes with a few caveats. Verizon Wireless and Sprint are the only carriers available at Best Buy, a bit of a bummer for AT&T and T-Mobile customers.

Another issue with the deal is the $1 iPhone 6S only has 16GB of internal storage. For some customers, that might not seem like an issue, but 16GB is completely insufficient for iPhone users who download a lot of apps and videos or take a lot of photos.

Best Buy will stock all four colors of the iPhone 6S: space gray, silver, gold, and rose gold. The deal is available in stores or online until Sunday, and hopefully there will be enough stock to last through the weekend rush. Customers who trade in an iPhone 5 or later and purchase the iPhone 6S will receive a $200 gift card from Best Buy to sweeten the deal.

Best Buy isn’t the only retailer offering a festive smartphone deal — Carriers are getting involved as well. T-Mobile is offering a free year of Hulu to Verizon Wireless customers looking to switch carriers, and $100 off the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and S6 Edge Plus. AT&T customers who want to switch to T-Mobile will receive a 128GB iPhone 6S for the price of a 16GB model, alongside other potential freebies. AT&T has Samsung deals as well, including a free Galaxy S6 if you purchase a separate Samsung smartphone.

Apple’s new iPhone 15 handsets have been largely well received since their release on Friday, though one troubling issue has emerged with the pricier Pro versions of the device.

As reported by Digital Trends on Monday, some owners of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max have taken to online forums to express concerns that their new iPhone is heating up way beyond what seems normal, and certainly to a greater extent than their previous iPhone when performing the same or similar tasks.

After 3 days, I love these 4 things about the iPhone 15
A green iPhone 15 on a green bench.

Apple’s new iPhone 15 has hit the streets, and boy, it’s a pretty great upgrade from its predecessor. You now have the Dynamic Island, USB-C, an A16 Bionic processor, and a mighty 48MP main camera that can do up to 2x optical zoom. To top it off, the standard iPhone 15 models have a new matte finish back glass with color infused throughout the material.

I’ve only had the iPhone 15 for a few days now and will be working on the full review for Digital Trends in the coming days. But after just spending a couple of days with it, I’m already thoroughly impressed with the iPhone 15, even though I typically go for the Pro models myself.
The new matte back is absolutely lovely

Does the iPhone 15 have an overheating problem? Here’s what we know
Someone holding the Natural Titanium iPhone 15 Pro Max.

The Apple iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 series have been launched with much fanfare, but it seems that not all users are completely satisfied with the new handsets. Despite the many improvements and new features that come with these phones, users of both the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 have taken to social media to complain about overheating issues.

While this may not be a cause for immediate alarm, it is certainly something that Apple and its team of engineers will need to monitor closely, assuming there is a system-wide problem, which there might not be. The last thing anyone wants is for the new phones to become a safety hazard or for users to suffer damage to their devices.
