Watch this: iPhone 15 Review: A Big Upgrade for Older iPhone Owners
The iPhone 15 series represents the latest and greatest from Apple’s pantheon of devices, and two of the models have earned spots among our overall favorite phones of the year. Still, upgrading can come with a hefty price tag. If you’re holding out on grabbing an iPhone 15, cost may be a factor — but there are deals that can help you get your hands on one for less. We’ve done the research, rounding up all the best deals currently available in one place.
Whether you’re looking to nab the basic iPhone 15 or want to splurge on the ultra-powerful 15 Pro Max, there are options that can save you some cash. Straightforward discounts on unlocked models are still hard to come by, but you can save up to $1,100 with an eligible trade-in at several major retailers and carriers. We’ve highlighted the best iPhone 15 deals below.
The latest iPhones include the Dynamic Island, faster processors and upgraded cameras. The iPhone 15 is powered by the A16 Bionic chip for faster speeds and increased efficiency over last year’s model. The iPhone 15 Pro runs on Apple’s A17 Pro chip for even more powerful performance. Other notable changes include a move to USB-C charging, brighter displays and upgraded ultra-wideband capabilities. The iPhone 15 Pro also has a customizable action button, a titanium-based chassis and a new periscope-style telephoto lens on the larger iPhone 15 Pro Max.
We’ll keep this list of the best iPhone 15 deals updated as new offers crop up or existing promotions change, so check back when it’s time to buy.

Go Inside the Apple iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro: See How the New iPhones Look and Work
You can order your iPhone 15 or iPhone 15 Pro directly from Apple right now and choose delivery or pickup. Apple’s trade-in program is offering as much as $650 off when you hand over your old device. The iPhone Upgrade Program or Apple Card financing (and cash back) are also options, and you can save even more when you opt to sign up with a carrier.
Order one of the latest iPhones from Walmart and you can snag the biggest trade-in discount, with as much as $1,100 off the Pro models. The deal requires a qualifying installment plan through either AT&T or Verizon and the trade-in of an eligible device. Note, however, that Walmart’s list prices are $50 above Apple’s retail prices, so the deal is $50 better than those below, rather than $100.
Verizon customers adding a new line on an Unlimited Ultimate plan can save up to $830 on the base iPhone 15, $930 on the iPhone 15 Plus or $1,000 on the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max with an eligible trade-in. Existing customers on an Unlimited Plus or Unlimited Ultimate plan who qualify for an upgrade can still save up to $830 on any model with an eligible trade-in — no new line required.
Verizon is also offering some other bonuses, including up to $460 off an iPad and $300 off an Apple Watch when bundled with this purchase. Just note that you’ll need a new line for these devices to take advantage of the offer.
AT&T customers on a qualifying unlimited plan can save up to $830 on the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus, or up to $1,000 on the 15 Pro and Pro Max with an eligible trade-in and purchase on an installment plan. Even old and damaged phones with a trade-in value of just $35 or more will net you trade-in savings, so you may be surprised at what that cracked iPhone in your drawer is worth. The discount is applied in the form of bill credits over 36 months, and you’ll have to pay the remaining balance if you cancel service before then.
T-Mobile is offering quite a few different ways to save on the iPhone 15 series. If you’ve got an old phone to trade in, you can save up to $1,000 if you’re on a Go5G Next plan; $830 if you’re on a Go5G Plus plan; $350 if you’re on a Go5G, Magenta, or ONE rate plan; or $200 if you’re on a different qualifying service plan.
You can also save up to $830 with both a trade-in and a new line of service. And if you need more than one new phone, you can buy one and get up to $700 off another when adding at least one new line of service.
AT&T and Verizon customers can save up to $1,000 on the iPhone 15 series with a trade-in through Best Buy as long as they have or switch to a qualifying unlimited plan. Plus, AT&T customers will save $100 when adding a new line or account. Best Buy also has its own trade-in program where you can save up to $1,000 with an eligible trade-in, though the tech retailer isn’t carrying any unlocked models at the moment.
Get the iPhone 15 Pro and an unlimited plan for $60 a month on Boost Infinite’s Infinite Access for iPhone, available via Amazon and directly at Boost Infinite. It’s similar to Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program in that you can upgrade to the newest iPhone each year, but it rolls in unlimited talk, text and 5G data, plus 5GB of data while roaming in Mexico and Canada, and unlimited talk and text from the US to Mexico and Canada. You don’t need to trade in a device to get started, though each annual upgrade requires you to give back the old iPhone.
