UPDATE: See the best iPhone Cyber Monday deals right now.
If you're looking for a discount on a new iPhone, Black Friday 2019 has ushered in a bonanza of deals on Apple's smartphones, which should be welcome news for your wallet.
After all, Apple consistently makes the best smartphones around, but it also prices those phones accordingly. Even with the price dropping on the entry level iPhone this year — the iPhone 11 costs $699 instead of the $749 Apple charged for its predecessor — you still have to part with a serious chunk of change to get Apple's best phones. Take advantage of iPhone Black Friday deals and you can save big on what's normally an expensive purchase.
For example, Verizon is offering up to $800 in incentives for the iPhone 11, which includes $400 off for trade-in AND a $400 gift card. But that's not the only Black Friday deal out there.
Here's our roundup of the best iPhone Black Friday deals, which we will be updating throughout the holidays.

Free iPhone XR @ AT&T

iPhone XR: Was $599 now $499 (Renewed) @ Amazon
Apple already dropped the price on the iPhone XR when the iPhone debuted. But if you don't mind opting for a refurbished phone, you can save more than $100 buying a renewed unlocked iPhone XR at Amazon in this iPhone Black Friday deal.

Black Friday iPhone 11 deals
Black Friday iPhone XR deals
The iPhone XR debuted in 2018 alongside the iPhone XS and XS Max, but it's the only phone in that trio still available from Apple. (You can find the iPhone XS and XS Max at carriers and retailers.) Though it's a year older, the iPhone XR is still a good phone, as the A12 Bionic chip inside outpaces even newer Android devices. You will have to make do with just a single rear camera lens, but the iPhone XR's camera is pretty capable.
Your best bet for a good black Friday deal on the iPhone XR is to turn to either a wireless carrier or retailer who will offer a discount on its $599 price. Buying a used model will also help you save money.
Black Friday iPhone 8 deals
This is currently the cheapest iPhone Apple still offers and, as a result, the most likely to see discounts around Black Friday. Currently, the iPhone 8 sells for $449 at Apple while the larger iPhone 8 Plus is available for $549.
