You'll be pleasantly surprised just how many good iPhone Prime Day deals are available right now. Some of them have strict terms and conditions, but if you're flexible, you can save a bunch on the latest Apple handsets.

U.S. buyers may be quite jealous of the unlocked deals for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini that Amazon is offering in the U.K. Fortunately, Amazon's U.S. offer is more complete, including a carrier plan and a gift-card credit that slowly trickles into your account over the course of the two-year contract. You can also get similar terms for the iPhone 11 series if you want to save a bit more money by going for older hardware.

Read on for the latest iPhone deals this Prime Day and be sure to keep checking back to see what's new. Also, if you haven't already, make sure you sign up to a 30-day free Amazon Prime trial so you can get the best out of these 48 hours of deals.
