Will I find deals on the new iPhone?

We expect the latest generation Apple iPhone models to drop sometime in September. While Apple isn’t offering any direct discounts on its products right now, you might be able to find deals when you purchase them through other retailers.

The fanciest of new features don’t come cheap: Prices start at $999 and go up to $1,349. The XS Max is even more spendy, with prices ranging from $1,099 to $1,449. Check back here to find out about sales on newer models for Black Friday. You can usually find the best deals on iPhone X through providers like Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint.

How to save on Apple products on Cyber Monday

In years past, Apple offered the deepest discounts on older models, saving smaller savings for the latest phones, tablets and laptops. This year, Apple customers can expect similar sales. But to take advantage of Cyber Monday, your best bet may be other retailers.

Many of the same iPhone deals you can get on Black Friday will likely be available throughout Cyber Weekend and into Cyber Monday. Shoppers can also expect iPads, MacBooks, Apple watches and accessories on sale for Cyber Monday from stores like Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Kohl’s and Newegg.

How to save on Apple products on Cyber Monday

The Apple Store doesn’t always participate in Cyber Monday sales, so you may have to look elsewhere to save on a new device. Be on the lookout for price cuts on popular Apple phones, laptops, tablets, accessories and more from other retailers, like Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, Walmart, Target and Newegg.

In previous years, most retailers that slashed prices on Apple products for Black Friday carried those same deals through the weekend and into Cyber Monday.

How can I save on previous generation of iPhones?

While you might not find huge deals on the latest Apple releases, you can save big on previous models. Here are a few tips for finding older generation iPhones for less on Black Friday and Cyber Monday:

  • Look for refurbished and second-hand iPhones from retailers like eBay, MacMall, Newegg and Best Buy.
  • The iPhone SE is one of the most affordable iPhones available, but you’ll need to get it from a marketplace or other retailer, since the Apple Store no longer carries this model.
  • Check out the iPhone 7 or 8. These models have some of the latest technology and updates, but without the hefty price tag of the newest iPhones.

How can I get the iPhone X?

Apple stopped selling the iPhone X when it released the new XS and XR models in October 2018. The good news is this means carriers and third-party retailers are also trying to get rid of their iPhone Xs, so you might be able to snap them up at a great price this year.

But don’t count out the XS or XR. Here’s a rundown of some of the main differences between all three models:

iPhone X

  • Has 3D Touch and a dual-camera setup
  • Portrait mode
  • OLED screen

iPhone XR

  • Does not have 3D Touch and a dual-camera setup
  • Portrait mode
  • LED screen rather than OLED screen
  • Significantly cheaper than the X or XS

iPhone XS

  • 120Hz touch sensing for better touch response rate
  • Smart HDR for even better photos
  • OLED screen

    Can education pricing be applied on top of Black Friday discounts, or is it usually a choice between the two?

      Hi Cris,

      Thanks for your inquiry. Apple typically does not allow two discounts to be applied together on the same order. You’ll likely have to choose the better deal between education pricing and Black Friday deals.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us again.
