The iPhone 12 has been nixed from Apple's iPhone lineup, but if you're on the hunt for an affordable iPhone for a teen or as a backup for yourself, this $299 iPhone 12 fits the bill. It features a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display, A14 Bionic chip, 5G connectivity, dual rear cameras, and the ability to play/record/edit Dolby Vision video. 

Straight Talk is a no-contract carrier offering unlimited data plans, 5G coverage, and its new multiline plans. Phones and plans are available exclusively via Straight Talk or at Walmart.
