We may be Android Authority, but we can’t ignore what Apple’s iPhones bring to the table, especially when you can snag a deep discount. The ecosystem is well-integrated, iOS is about as straightforward as it gets, and just about anyone can pick up an Apple product and learn to use it quickly. Here are some of the best iPhone deals right now to help you avoid the so-called Apple Tax.

The latest line-up of iPhones is here, and the carriers are using them as bait to get your custom. The good news is that means you can save as much as $1,000 in the process, thereby getting some of the models completely free.

We think the iPhone 14 is the best entry-level iPhone flagship ever made. The build quality is brilliant, the battery will get you through the day with ease, and the cameras are quite capable, offering superb videography features. Some people may prioritize the battery life and size of the iPhone 14 Plus. Its large battery, combined with modest hardware, allows for extended usage without needing to recharge for up to two days.

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are obviously the more interesting phones in the series. The rear cameras have been upgraded, the new A16 Bionic chip can handle just about any task you throw at it, and the build quality is second to none.

The main differences between the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are the display and battery sizes. The iPhone 14 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch 120Hz OLED display and a larger battery, whereas the iPhone 14 Pro has a 6.1-inch 120Hz OLED display and a more compact design.

iPhone 13 and 13 Mini deals

The vanilla iPhone 13 is the “standard” model. It has the same size display as last year at 6.1 inches. It also has the same rear camera setup, with a primary shooter paired with an ultrawide lens.  The iPhone 13 Mini has a palm-friendly 5.4-inch display and almost all the same specs as the vanilla iPhone 13.

Stepping up above the standard variant, we have the Apple iPhone 13 Pro. It’s the same size as the regular iPhone 13 but features a triple-lens camera on the back, among other upgrades. The third lens is a telephoto, which helps with zooming in on far-away subjects. The iPhone 13 Pro Max is the biggest of the new phones with a 6.7-inch display. It has all the specs of the regular iPhone 13 Pro but comes with a bigger battery.

Despite now having a successor, the iPhone 12 family is still hot property. Each model packs the new A14 Bionic chip and up to 256GB of storage. You can even return to the days of the small flagship thanks to the iPhone 12 Mini. Apple kept a similar rainbow of hues from last year’s models, so don’t be afraid to express yourself.

Just like the iPhone 11 family, you can also splurge for the larger, more powerful iPhone 12 Pro. This year, the 12 Pro matches the standard 12 in size, but it adds a third rear camera for the perfect shot. You can once again choose from plenty of colors, and the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max each pack the A14 Bionic chip on the inside.

The 11 display

The iPhone 11 is Apple’s 2019 take on an affordable flagship device, and it’s a solid pick for most people. It packs the company’s A13 Bionic chip and up to 256GB of storage. The iPhone 11 also offers a dual-camera setup — a feature that you used to have to go Pro to achieve. If you’re determined to have your phone match your other tech, the iPhone 11 is available in six unique colors.

For those of you who prefer larger phones or want a triple camera system, the iPhone 11 Pro is likely your best bet. Apple’s premium flagship comes in a 5.8-inch Pro model as well as a 6.5-inch Pro Max version. The iPhone 11 Pro not only adds a telephoto lens but also upgrades from an LCD screen to an OLED, so your pictures will look stunning before and after the snap.

The iPhone SE is now on its third generation. Of the things that are new in 2022, buyers should be most excited about the new processor. Apple gave the iPhone SE (2022) its blazing fast A15 Bionic chip, the same that powers the speedy iPhone 13 family. This chip competes well with the best from Qualcomm and Samsung and ensures top performance for the phone for years.

Here are the best deals on the iPhone SE, new and old:
