Looking to buy an iPhone? Can’t find good discounts on contract deals with an Apple smartphone? Then keep reading to find the best available deals on the iPhone 14, 13, 12, and SE lines.
Apple iPhone prices tend to be very stable, with rare discounts throughout the year. Hence, it is especially important to keep an eye on carrier discounts. You end up paying for the phone over two or three years but usually get a hefty discount over buying them unlocked.
In this article, you will find all offerings from carriers and major retailers in a simple price comparison, so that you can choose the one that is most convenient for you. We will keep this page updated with the most recent iPhone models available in the US.
Tips for selecting the best iPhone deals
Before we dive into the different carriers, there are a few things you will need to keep in mind. I strongly recommend you get your calculator out to figure out the exact cost you will have to pay with your own individual plan. It is well known that a carrier deal may look great with the device, but the plans themselves may be overpriced.
In case you are looking to get the best price for your older iPhone model, trading it in might not be the best solution. So it is a good idea to try your luck outside of the Apple and carrier ecosystem and this is how you can resell your iPhone for the best possible price.
Lastly, because nobody wants to buy a phone with the color they dislike the most, I advise you to take a look at the options that are available on each page. One carrier may have the (Product)RED color available in the 256 GB version but another may not. So if you do not find the color or capacity that you want I would recommend you to check other carriers too, or perhaps an unlocked version.

The 2023 vanilla iPhones are not far behind when it comes to discounts. If you are lucky, you can even grab a phone for free when signing up with an unlimited phone plan.
For the 2021 iPhones, the requirements to get a free phone are considerably lower, with some carriers asking only for customers to sign up for a contract plan, usually an unlimited one.
Deals for the iPhone 12 are usually not as attractive, especially since carriers usually offer better discounts on the pricier (and more modern) iPhone 13. Still, you can usually get a free iPhone 12 when signing up for a phone contract:
The “junior iPhone” is a good, albeit old-fashioned, way of getting into the Apple ecosystem. The cheapest iPhone can also be found for free when signing a phone contract, with additional deals when trading your old phone in.
