Preorders for the new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max kicked off last week, with general availability due on Sept. 20. The starting price for Apple’s new flagship? A surprisingly low $699, which have led some to suggest that price is the iPhone 11’s best feature. Of course, the key there is “starting”; if you’re looking for more than 64GB of storage or want the fancy cameras available in the iPhone 11 Pro lineup, be prepared to spend more. (Pro tip: The extra $50 for the 128GB version of the iPhone 11 is money well spent — only about $2 more per month if you’re buying on a 24-month payment plan.)
Are there deals? Discounts? Any ways at all to save money on this splurgey purchase? Yes to all three questions, though the best deal might be choosing a previous-generation iPhone. Let’s take a look at the very best iPhone 11 deals you can get right now. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.
When I first looked at Verizon’s trade-in deal, I was turned off by the “up to $500” language. And, sure enough, when I specified an iPhone 7 as my trade, I was shown a market value of just $97. But if you continue on through the sign-up process (and are indeed trading in an iPhone 7 or later), you should get the full $500 — plus a $200 prepaid debit card.
As you might expect, however, that $500 is provided in the form of bill credit over the course of 24 months, and of course you’ll need Verizon service on top of that. If you’re hoping to get on Verizon’s network and save money on a new iPhone, you might want to check out Visible’s offer, below.
