  • Apple isn’t one for Black Friday, but you can still find a few ways to save on a new iPhone. Verizon is offering a free iPhone 14 Pro when you trade in an old phone on a select 5G unlimited plan, while AT&T is offering an iPhone 14 with similar terms and T-Mobile is offering the 14 Pro with trade-in on its Magenta Max plan. And Best Buy will knock $50 off the price of an iPhone 14 Pro if you activate it with your carrier at the time of purchase. Read our iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 reviews.
  • Target is selling a pre-owned, 64GB iPhone XS for $319.99 and a pre-owned, 64GB iPhone XR for $299.99. They’re older models, but should still get new iOS versions for a year or two. Read our iPhone XS and iPhone XR reviews.

The iPhone 14 Pro ushers in some new ideas from Apple, making it kind of an early adopter special. If it’s time to upgrade and you want all the latest and greatest features, then you’ll need to go Pro.
