Apple's flagship phone is one of the best phones we've reviewed. Starting at $799, it's far from cheap, but there are plenty of iPhone 15 deals to help you lower the cost of admission.

The iPhone 15 family includes the 6.1-inch iPhone 15 (from $799) and the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus (from $899). Both phones use the A16 Bionic chip (the same chip powering the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max) and feature a 48MP main camera. Apple's Dynamic Island is also now standard on all phones and not just limited to the pro models. 

If you need more power, Apple offers the iPhone 15 Pro (from $999) and iPhone 15 Pro Max (from $1,199). Both phones are powered by the new A17 Pro chip. In the case of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, it now comes with 256GB of storage by default, but it's also $100 pricier than the iPhone 14 Pro Max with 128GB. But don't worry too much as there are many iPhone 15 deals that can help lower the cost of the phone. 

One of the best iPhone 15 deals right now comes from Verizon. Verizon is taking up to $1,000 off select iPhone 15 models when you open an Unlimited Plus or Unlimited Ultimate plan with your iPhone 15 purchase. For more deals, make sure to check out our Verizon phone deals and AT&T phone deals guides for the best discounts.
