Apple’s new iPhone family has something for everyone, whether it’s the small-yet-equally-mighty iPhone 12 mini with a 5.4-inch screen, the two 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and 12 Pro models, or the monstrous iPhone 12 Pro Max, which is more than just a bigger iPhone 12 Pro and is the biggest iPhone ever released.
Clearly, the global situation this year has resulted in delays for certain components. As a result, the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro both go up for preorder on October 16 and ship on October 23. Preorders for the smaller Mini and larger Max variants are delayed to November 6, with shipping starting November 13.
With that in mind, if you want to buy the 12 or 12 Pro, we’ve rounded up the best iPhone 12 deals below. If you’re interested in the iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Mini, we’ve also included the options below, but you’ll need to wait a couple of weeks to pre-order.
Where to buy the iPhone 12
Best Buy is offering up to $100 off when you activate your new iPhone at checkout. For example, the iPhone 12 Pro model with 256GB storage space can be yours for $999 if you activate at checkout with Sprint, or you can get the 128GB version for $900, with the same conditions applied. You also get Apple News+ for four months for new subscribers.
You can save up to $100 on the iPhone 12 if you buy your device and activate it on Sprint’s network. Alternatively, if you want to spread the cost of your new iPhone over interest-free monthly payments, you can do so using Best Buy's Credit Card.
If you want to buy directly from Apple, there’s a couple of ways you can save. First, you can trade-in an eligible device, which has to be an iPhone. Trade-in pricing varies depending upon how old your phone is, but here are the most recent phones presented in Apple’s trade-in dropdown:
Apple iPhone 12 trade-in pricing:
- iPhone 11 Pro Max – Up to $500
- iPhone 11 Pro – Up to $450
- iPhone 11 – Up to $350
- iPhone XS Max – Up to $370
- iPhone XS – Up to $300
- iPhone XR – Up to $250
- iPhone X – Up to $250
- iPhone 8 Plus – Up to $210
- iPhone 8 – Up to $140
If you don’t want to trade-in for an instant discount against your purchase, you can also trade-in your phone for an Apple Gift Card that can be redeemed in Apple’s stores or on Apple.com.
You can save as much as $500 if your current iPhone is in good shape and in working conditions, but it also depends on the model you have.
