We've seen plenty of iPhone deals before, but this week is an extraordinary time for cash-strapped Apple fans. Three different carriers are offering free iPhone sales on Apple's latest smartphones. So if you can't wait for the iPhone 12, here's what you can get now. 

The first deal comes courtesy of Sprint, which is offering a free iPhone 11 (opens in new tab) when you switch and trade-in your old device. The best part of this deal is that your old device can be in any condition. Meanwhile, through July 1, you can get a free iPhone SE 2020 (opens in new tab) when you open a new line with Verizon Unlimited service. Other free iPhone sales you can get right now include:
