Cyber Monday is imminent, but the Cyber Monday iPhone deals are already here. Apple's phones are excellent devices, but can cost a fair bit. That's why it's always worth waiting for the Cyber Monday phone deals to appear and help you save money.
One such deal is the iPhone 14 Pro for free via trade-in and with Unlimited plans at Verizon, which gets you one of the best phones of the year for nothing assuming you have a valuable-enough device to give in exchange. That's not the end of the offer though, as Verizon will also give you extra money off for switching, or an Apple Watch or iPad too, depending on what you're looking for.
If you'd prefer to go with Apple itself, the Apple Store's annual Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale is running until Monday, November 28. This gets you a $50 gift card with the purchase of an iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 12 or iPhone SE (2022). It's a shame there's no discount, but this is still unusually generous of Apple and worth taking advantage of.
If you're on the hunt for more than just an iPhone, check in with our Cyber Monday deals page too for all the best deals we've found so far. Also, take a look at our Apple Cyber Monday deals live blog for the top iPhone, Mac and Apple Watch deals as they appear.

iPhone 12: free w/ unlimited @ Verizon
While it's two years old now, the iPhone 12 is still a good option if you need a cheap phone. It has 5G, dual cameras, and an OLED display. The A14 Bionic chipset is still powerful by today's standards. We wish it had better battery life, but with the 64GB option being free at Verizon, it's hard to look past it.
iPhone 12: was $629 now $129 @ Xfinity Mobile
Xfinity is taking $500 off the cost of iPhones, and that includes the older iPhone 12, giving you the chance to pick up a still-great device for less than $150. All you have to do is transfer you current phone number over to Xfinity — there's no trade-in requirement for this deal.

Open a new line at Verizon and you'll get this phone for free. Verizon lists it as "good" condition, which means it has serious scratches, scuff, or dents. It includes a 90-day limited warranty.
Unlocked refurbished iPhone 11 Pro Max: now $649 @ Apple
At $649, this is one of the cheapest (unlocked) refurbished iPhones you can get. If you don't see this price for the 64GB model, try different storage capacities to see what other models are on sale; the 256GB version costs $729, for example.
iPhone SE 2022
iPhone SE 2022: was $429 now $389 @ Walmart
At other stores, you'll pay $429 for an iPhone SE, but Walmart is selling the latest model at a $40 discount. What we like about Walmart's offer is that the phone is unlocked, so you're not tied to any carrier with your purchase.
iPhone SE 2022: free w/ unlimited + new line @ Verizon
Currently at Verizon, new and existing members can get a new iPhone SE 2022 for free when you open a new unlimited line. That's $429 off and one of the best Cyber Monday iPhone deals we've seen. No trade-in is required for this deal.
iPhone SE (2022): free w/ eligible trade-in + new line @ T-Mobile
If you want an iPhone on the cheap, then you need look no further than the iPhone SE (2022). With the body of an iPhone 8 and the power of an iPhone 13, this phone normally retails for $429, but you can get save 50% an eligible trade-in plus another 50% by opening a new line at T-Mobile. That's a free phone, which is a great deal on a solid little device like the iPhone SE.
iPhone SE 2022: free $300 gift card @ Visible
For a limited time, Verizon-owned Visible is offering a free $300 gift card with the purchase of an iPhone SE 2022. It's one of the best freebie deals we've seen from this carrier.
iPhone SE 2020
Tips for finding the best Cyber Monday iPhone deals
- Start with mobile carriers: Mobile carriers tend to offer the best Cyber Moday iPhone deals. There is one catch — in order to get their best deals, you'll have to switch to their service. In some instances, you may also have to sign up for an unlimited plan or trade-in an older phone.
- Trade-in your old phone for credit: If you have an older phone to trade in, many carriers will give you a generous credit that could range from $100 to as high as $1,000 off. As a result, it pays to keep your smartphone's cables, box, and accessories in good condition so you can get the most from your trade-in.
- Check out MVNOs: Short for mobile virtual network operator, MVNOs operate on the infrastructure of existing networks. For instance, Verizon-owned Visible works on Verizon's network, whereas Mint Mobile uses T-Mobile's network. MVNOs offer less costly plans than their bigger counterparts. In some instances, there are some trade-off such as less readily available customer support or slightly slower data speeds.
- Don't be afraid of refurbs: Apple offers some of the best refurbs in the industry. They refurbish their iPhone to look like new and we especially like the company's refurbs because they're all backed by the same 1-year warranty you'd get with a new Apple device.
Will Apple feature Cyber Monday discounts on iPhones?
Apple typically doesn't lower prices on iPhones for Cyber Monday. Instead, as Apple announced for its four-day sales event, you can get gift cards ranging from $50 to $200 for buying different Apple products. Specifically, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini will qualify for a $50 gift card.
