iPhone SE Black Friday deals can make Apple's budget handset even cheaper, and there are some brilliant deals available at top carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile right now, as well as savings on the iPhone SE handset itself.

The iPhone SE is one of Apple's cheapest phones before you take Black Friday deals into account, and with plenty of Cyber Monday deals around the corner, the savings are readily available right now. 

One of the best iPhone SE Black Friday deals comes from AT&T, which has dropped the $399 handset to a mere $149 right now with a saving of $250. That's an incredible iPhone SE deal that's worth snapping up ASAP. You can also save big with iPhone 12 Black Friday deals when you buy today and over the weekend, but the flashy new iPhone isn't nearly as affordable as the iPhone SE, so if you're budget-conscious and set on an iOS handset, this is your best bet.

Black Friday iPhone SE deals — what to know about the iPhone SE

The iPhone SE takes the same form factor as the iPhone 8, but updates the inner components. This phone features an A13 Bionic processor, which may not match the A14 Bionic found in the iPhone 12 lineup, but still outperforms many top Android handsets. The iPhone SE also features a single rear camera, aided by the neural engine on the A13 chip to produce some of the best photos we've seen from a low cost phone.

Many of the iPhone SE deals we've seen so far only cover the 64GB base model. That's a pretty meager amount of storage these days, so look for bargains on the higher capacity models if possible. AT&T's discounted price currently applies to the 128GB ($300) and 256GB ($450) versions of the iPhone SE, too.

The iPhone SE comes in three colors — black, white and Project Red. The deals above apply to all three color options where supplies are available.

The iPhone SE is currently the cheapest iPhone, though Apple recently cut the prices of the iPhone 11 and iPhone XR to $599 and $499, respectively.
