Best iPhone 12 Deals – Where to buythe iPhone 12 series

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

If you head over to Best Buy right now, you can save up to $1,000 on your new iPhone 12. It all depends on the carrier you choose. First, Sprint, now part of T-Mobile, lets you save from $100 to $500 with qualified activation and an eligible device’s trade-in. We then focus on AT&T, where you can save up to $800 on your new device with the same conditions as Sprint, which means you have to activate a new line on one of AT&T’s qualified plans, and you also have to trade-in an eligible device.

Now, if you want to get your new iPhone 12 on Verizon’s network, there are two options to choose from, as you can save from $100 to $500 with qualified activation and trade-in on an iPhone 7 or newer. However, you may also want to consider the possibility of saving up to $1,000 thanks to a BoGo deal. To get this deal, you need a qualified activation on Unlimited plans for Verizon, and at least one new line is required. Savings will appear as a monthly bill credit, but it won’t be discounted through Best Buy at the time of purchase.

Still, if you don’t want to save on your new iPhone 12, you can also get your device on Verizon starting at $33.33/mo. For 24 months. Sprint will have you paying $34.58/mo. For two years, but if you want to pay less, you can go for AT&T’s option that will have you paying $26.67/mo. But this also means you will have to pay for 30 months.

      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 head over to Apple’s online store, you will see that the iPhone 12 is selling for $799, if you buy it upfront, or you can get it with an installment plan that will have you paying $33.29 a month. However, you can also choose to trade-in an eligible device, and this will get you up to $500 depending on the device you have to offer. Unfortunately, if you want your phone to come unlocked, you will have to pay $829 before trade-in, and your monthly payments would go up to $34.54.

        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.

          The unlocked version of the iPhone 12 mini with a 5.4-inch display starts at $729, or you can get it from $30.37/mo for 24 months in its 64GB storage option. The 128GB version is priced at $779 or $32.45/mo, and the 256GB version can be yours for $879 or $36.62/mo for 24 months.
          iPhone 12

            iPhone 12 Pro
              Now, the iPhone 12 Pro starts at $999 with 128GB in storage space. You would then have to pay $1,099 for 256GB storage and $12,99 for 512GB. Monthly installments would have you pay $41.62 for the 128GB variant, $45.79 for 256GB, and $54.12 for the 512GB version for 24 months.

              If you’d rather buy it from your carrier, we’ve also rounded up the best carrier deals below.

              If you don’t want to take up any savings, you can get your new iPhone for as low as $29.16/mo, but there are several other options to consider, since Verizon is probably the carrier that offers more ways to save on your new iPhone 12.

              • The iPhone 12 mini starts at $29.16 per month for 24 months on Verizon device payment (0% APR, $699.99 retail)
              • The iPhone 12 starts at $33.33 per month for 24 months on Verizon device payment (0% APR, $799.99 retail)
              • The iPhone 12 Pro starts at $41.66 per month for 24 months on Verizon device payment (0% APR, $999.99 retail)
              • The iPhone 12 Pro max starts at $45.83 per month for 24 months on Verizon device payment (0% APR, $1,099.99 retail)

              Now, if you want to save some cash, you can trade-in an eligible device and get a new line to get up to $750 off. You can upgrade your current device and get up to $440 off, or buy one and get $800 off the second device, and yes, you are also going to need a new line.

              More importantly, Verizon is also the network with the biggest deployment of those superfast 5G speeds that Apple mentioned. Alongside a new Nationwide 5G network launched alongside the new iPhone, Verizon has the 5G Ultra-wideband mmWave network that offers speeds of up to 4Gbps in 55 cities and growing.

                iPhone 12
                  Verizon has great offers for switchers, existing customers and business customers to help you get a new iPhone 12


                Well, if you want to get your new device over at AT&T, you can get the 64GB base model for $26.67/mo. However, you can save up to $700 with an eligible trade-in, which would leave your new device for just $3.33/mo if you go for the 64GB base model. If you want more storage space, you would also end up paying more, as the 128GB version and the 256GB options would cost you $28.34 and $31.67/mo, respectively, or $5 and $8.33/mo.

                  iPhone 12
                    The third-largest carrier in the US has announced new deals on the iPhone 12 that enables both new and current customers to get the new iPhone for free, kinda.


                  T-Mobile is offering up to $830 savings on your new iPhone 12 after certain conditions have been met. First, you need to join Magenta and trade-in an eligible device, which basically will get you a new iPhone for free. You will see the trade-in credits and the balance in the 24 monthly bill credits for your new phone. Of course, you will have to trade in your iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 11, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, or iPhone X in good condition to get your iPhone 12 for free. While the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will get you up to $600 off, and previous models such as the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6S, and the iPhone 6S Plus can get you $450 savings.

                    iPhone 12
                      5G speed. A14 Bionic, the fastest chip in a smartphone. An edge-to-edge OLED display. And Night mode on every camera.


                    As we expected, the iPhone 12 box doesn’t come with a power adapter or wired headphones. There is a USB-C to Lightning cable, so at least there’s that? If you don’t know what USB-C is, or you’re coming from an older iPhone and haven’t got a newish iPad or Macbook, you’ll probably need a USB-C power adapter. 

                      20W USB-C Power Adapter
                        The Apple 18W USB‑C Power Adapter offers fast, efficient charging at home, in the office, or on the go, for just $29.

                      If wired earbuds are a must, then the lack of headphone jack means you’ll want something that’s Lightning compatible. Apple’s official EarPods are the ones you used to get in the box and cost $19, whilst the upgrade pick if you’re interested in something wireless would be the original AirPods for $125. Of course, if you want the best true wireless earbuds for the iPhone right now, look no further than the AirPods Pro, which is currently on sale at $199!

                      T-Mobile is now the second largest carrier in the US

                      Magenta had to wait for several years to complete its merger with Sprint. This year, we finally saw the operation take place, and even though we have seen T-Mobile lay off hundreds of Sprint’s employees, we are also starting to see how the carrier has started to grow.

                      Mike Sievert, T-Mobile’s new CEO, said:

                      “Surpassing AT&T to become #2 was a huge milestone to kick off Q2, but that was only the beginning! In our first quarter as a combined company, T-Mobile led the industry in total branded customer adds – even in a challenging environment – and there is no doubt that we are THE leading growth company in wireless.

                      Now we’re setting our sights on #1 – in customer choice and customers’ hearts – and we’ll get there by doing ONLY what the Un-carrier can do: offering customers the most advanced 5G network AND the best value while continuing to make big moves that fix customer pain points and disrupt this industry. I’m excited about what’s to come in this new T-Mobile era – we’re just getting started!”

                      T-Mobile is now the second-largest wireless carrier in the United States. The company has surpassed AT&T after its merger with Sprint, adding 1,245,000 new customers and reaching a total of 98.3 million customers at the end of Q2. Magenta has also announced a new Scam-Shield, which are tools that will help its users fight spam and scam calls. It also launched a new nationwide 5G standalone network, giving it a considerable advantage compared to its competitors.

                      Sprint will be no more on August 2, as it officially turns into T-Mobile

                      The Sprint and T-Mobile merger has finally taken place, and we have witnessed several changes since the merger was approved back in November 2019. Now we get new information telling us that the Sprint brand will officially disappear on August 2, 2020.

                      T-Mobile has confirmed that on August 2, 2020, it will officially unify Sprint’s operations under the T-Mobile brand, which means that Sprint will formally cease to exist. The Sprint and T-Mobile merger finally took place on April 1, and since then, T-Mobile has laid off many Sprint former employees, and it also has disabled Sprint’s 5G networks, and the next change will be rebranding most Sprint retail stores as new T-Mobile stores. On a positive note, there will be new deals announced next week.

                      Deutsche Telekom could soon own a majority of T-Mobile again

                      It seems that SoftBank Group Corp is negotiating to sell a significant portion of its T-Mobile US shares to Deutsche Telekom AG. The Japanese conglomerate is looking for ways to raise funds after reporting an $18 billion loss at its giant Vision Fund, which makes its first negative results after fifteen years.

                      It seems that Softbank’s latest financial report has also been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and some bad decisions that include the almost $10 billion investment at the office-sharing firm WeWork. Now Softbank aims to raise $41 billion by selling assets to boost its liquidity and help fund a big new stock-buy-back program. However, to achieve that goal, the Japanese conglomerate would have to sell a significant portion of its T-Mobile stake to Deutsche Telekom. If the operation is completed, it will leave Deutsche Telekom’s stake in T-Mobile from nearly 44 percent to above 50 percent.

                      T-Mobile’s market value stands at about $120 billion, after its recent merger with Sprint, which wouldn’t be affected by the possible operation. Softbank would also be expected to retain rights to 48.8 million shares to complete the merger, and these would be reissued if T-Mobile’s stock price reaches certain milestones within two years. Unfortunately, neither SoftBank or Deutsche Telekom have been immediately available for comment.

                      Sprint’s LG G8X ThinQ is getting Android 10 update

                      We have good news for all of those LG fans who purchased an LG G8X ThinQ on Sprint’s network. The last device of LG’s G series is now receiving its Android 10 update.

                      Unlocked versions of the LG G8X ThinQ started getting Android 10 back in December 2019, but maybe Sprint was too busy to release this software for its devices because of the whole T-Mobile merger. XDA forum users have been reporting that they have started to receive this update OTA, and LG has also published the Android 10 source code for the Sprint model on its site.

                      If you have a Sprint LG G8X, make sure to check if there’s an update available for your device and start enjoying some of the goodies of the latest Android version.

                      Deals. Amazon currently has Apple’s already affordable 10.2in iPad for $79 off, leaving the base model for $250 off, but you should probably go for a higher tier variant because, 32GB isn’t enough. The iPad Mini is also $50 off, leaving the Wi-Fi + Cellular 256GB of storage variant for $629. We also have more deals on Samsung portable SSDs, Marshall’s headphones and more.

                      T-Mobile will begin to sunset Sprint this summer for creating a unified brand

                      The T-Mobile and Sprint merger has been going on for a while now and it finally saw some completion on April 1st. The company made it clear that they would basically ditch the Sprint moniker and call it “The new T-Mobile”. At an investors event they just shared that they are planning a summer timeframe to start creating their unified strategy and simply advertising T-Mobile. If you are on Sprint, they did promise that users will remain on their carrier plans but they will eventually be moved to T-Mobile. What we do know is that you will start seing the Sprint brand disappear everywhere as of now, so don’t be surprised.

                      HTC could be prepping to launch wireless earbuds, images surface

                      Do you remember HTC? Well we’re still waiting on that flagship phone the company promised but, it seems they’re making some True Wireless Earbuds. These new earbuds are apparently called the HTC U Ear and they just appeared on the FCC website. The design… looks pretty similar to the regular AirPods, except for the fact that this is a glossy black color variant, which means they look like the Huawei Freebuds 3. We also get pictures of the case which also looks like the AirPods case but, the earbuds lie horizontally on the case instead of vertically like the AirPods.

                      OnePlus’ true wireless earbuds might be another AirPods clones arriving in July

                      Speaking of AirPods clones, we have a new leak of OnePlus‘ upcoming true wireless earbuds. The picture hints to a July release date and shows off a design that looks pretty much like AirPods except for a few details. The source also put out a different tweet which says “SOON” and the two O’s are earbud cases, and these actually look exactly like the new Pixel Buds case. We’ve also had other leaks from the same source which hinted to the OnePlus Z coming in July so it makes sense for them to launch together.

                      Microsoft Surface Duo leak reveals dated specs inside a foldable form factor

                      Microsoft announced the Surface Duo… last year, and it is slated to come out by the holidays this year. Now we have some more detailed and kind of underwhelming specs from Windows Central. It will reportedly feature two 5.6in AMOLED displays, with the 360 degree hinge. It will sadly be powered by the Snapdragon 855, a 3460 mAh battery, 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. There’s no NFC support, no 5G and it will apparently run a heavily skinned version of Android 10. It’ll bring a single 11MP f/2.0 camera which will also serve as the selfie camera. Like, unless Microsoft is pricing this bellow $1000, we wonder exactly who it’s gonna be for.

                      US takes another step to block HUAWEI’s global chip supply, China warns of retaliation

                      Earlier this week we reported that the US was extending the ban on Huawei for another year but, they didn’t stop there. The US Commerce Department has announced plans to block Huawei’s access to global semiconductors shipments that come directly from US Sources. The main goal is to stop Huawei from using solutions provided by US companies. According to Reuters, right after the US announced these plans, China decided to hit back. They are warning the US of some retaliatory measures which would include putting US companies on their own “unreliable entities” list. China would impose this ban on companies like Apple, Qualcomm, Cisco and more. On a separate report, the President of the US plans to add more taxes on companies like Apple which manufacture their products outside of the US with the goal of having them manufacture in the US again. The current tariffs have already cost American companies around $46B and these new ones might force companies like Apple to raise prices if they don’t move their operation. Subscribe: Follow us:
