Verizon's iPhone deals on the standard 14 and 14 Plus offer a hefty trade-in rebate of up to $800 off either device, a saving that's technically enough to get the standard 14 for free. Note, however, that you will need an unlimited data plan to be eligible for this particular saving. On the plus side, new customers can get an additional $200 gift card as a welcome bonus, a saving that stacks on top of any associated trade-in rebate. See another great deal on the iPhone 14 Plus.

Apple's iPhone 14 deals at launch are going to be your sole destination if you're on the hunt for an unlocked device. While it's a bit of bummer to not have many choices, the brand does offer its own trade-in rebates - even for unlocked devices. Since there are no unlimited plans attached, maximum savings tend to be a little lower but that's the price you'll pay for freedom from those pesky contracts. Currently, the maximum trade-in rebate is $720 for handing over an iPhone 13 Pro Max in good condition. An iPhone 13 in good condition will fetch you $470 off.

Right now, you're looking at maximum trade-in rebates of up to $800 for AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile devices – all excellent promotions that can potentially cover the entire cost of the standard device.

This is a nice little freebie that applies whether you stack with a trade or not, although it's currently only available with the AT&T network. Still, this deal is actually better than what the carrier itself is offering right now so it's definitely worth checking out.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro & 14 Pro Max: up to $1,000 off w/ trade-in and unlimited plan at Verizon
Verizon's iPhone deals on the 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max are even better than those on the standard devices in the range, with a huge trade-in rebate of up to $1,000 being available. This is enough to cover the entire cost of the Pro model alone but you'll still need an unlimited data plan and a fairly decent phone to trade to be eligible. New customers will also get an additional $200 online gift card if they switch over from another carrier. See this same deal on the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro & 14 Pro Max: up to $1,000 off w/ trade-in and unlimited plan at AT&T

As with all big carrier promotions, this one is tied to an unlimited data plan so definitely factor that into your budget before you jump in. At around $80 per month for 36 months, you'll definitely want to make sure you can take advantage of a trade-in to get this device on the house. See this same deal on the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro & 14 Pro Max: save up to $720 with a trade-in at Apple
The official retailer is going to be the only one offering unlocked iPhone 14 Pro deals at launch but the good news is it does have a fairly decent trade-in program of its own to check out. Right now, it's offering maximum rebates of up to $720 off (with an iPhone 13 Pro trade) without the need for a pesky carrier contract. That's unfortunately not as good as the biggest savings you can get at the carriers themselves but it's still enough to cut the cost of the device significantly.

Alongside the big carriers themselves, excellent iPhone 14 Pro preorder deals can be found over at Best Buy.

Still, the maximum rebate here is actually better than that offered at the carrier itself due to a small but welcome $100 bonus saving.

Which iPhone 14 series device should I buy?
The iPhone 14 Pro Max is probably the quickest and easiest answer if you are looking to buy the best phone of the series that is worth the money. This device will not only give you the most up-to-date A16 Bionic chipset and camera performances, but also comes with a large 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR screen for the best in-hand viewing experience and excellent 48MP wide, 12MP ultrawide, 12MP telephoto cameras to envy all rivals on the market.
iPhone 14 Pro has pretty much the same features just with a slightly smaller screen, but the savings are perhaps not worth it if you’d rather have a bigger display. iPhone 14 and 14 Plus would probably be our least recommended for this Black Friday, considering the improvement is very minimal. If you were going to buy an iPhone 14 base model or Plus we’d recommend you check out the Black Friday iPhone 13 deals too as you might be able to get a much better deal for a very similar device.
Will the iPhone 14 sell out over Black Friday?
Last year we experienced a lack in stock of iPhone 13 due to shortages in chips, which was also aggravated by the increase in sales over Black Friday. So will that repeat this year?
Apple has repeatedly said that they have been taking measures to prevent any shortages during the release of iPhone 14. A lot of retailers, in theory, will have stocked up on the devices for Black Friday, allowing them to offer the devices devices. But, even if this is true, it will likely mean retailers will have to limit the number of devices they sell.
In other words, expect limited stock, long delivery times and maybe some limitations on colours and storage with your iPhone 14 this Black Friday.
What factors should you consider when buying an iPhone 14?
There are a few factors to keep in mind when making your purchase of a new iPhone. Whether you're looking for something SIM-free or on a contract, you'll have to know what you're looking for:
SIM-free or contract:
This will be a big decision you'll have to make but it will likely be an easy one - do you want to buy your new device on a contract or as a SIM-free device.
If you go for a contract, most of your costs will be bundled into monthly payments making it easier to pay. However, this will be the overall more expensive option and will likely tie you in for longer.
Alternatively, a SIM-free phone will be cheaper overall and gives you more freedom but, it will require a much larger payment at the start having to buy the phone outright.
On almost all SIM plans and phone contracts these days, your calls and texts will be unlimited or well into the thousands. The factor that usually differentiates is data.
It can be hard to know how much data you'll need but a basic rule is that the majority of people these days will need more than 5GB. If you don't stream or download on the go, you could get by with under 5 for social media, maps and general internet searches.
We'd say look for something between 20-50GB. Of course, over Black Friday a lot of retailers will offer data boosts or loads of data for less. Having more than you need is always better than less.
3 tips to buy a cheap iPhone 14
1. Work out your storage needs
Storage space costs money as we all know too well. Working out how much you will realistically need, therefore, will be really helpful to make sure you're saving as much as possible when searching for Black Friday iPhone 14 deals. The cost of iPhone 14 tends to rise in price by $100/£100 every time you level up in size of storage space, so if you want a cheap iPhone 14 make sure you know exactly how much you will need. Here's your options:
This is usually enough for a lot of iPhone users. You'll be able to store over 3,000 apps, 35,000 photos taken on the 12MP camera and over 45 hours of 1080p videos. This is plenty of storage if you don't take an excessive amount of pictures and videos and you'll still be able to go about your daily usage without worrying about running out of storage.
Over the years this has probably become the most popular choice. As the iPhone cameras get better and the number of storage-draining apps grows, more and more people seem to be in need of more storage. Plus, as iPhones get better their life expectancy stretches out which means more and more people have started purchasing bigger storage space so that their phone can last longer without having to download images onto some other form of storage.
This is definitely not the cheap way to go about buying an iPhone 14. But it is a great idea to buy an iPhone 14 with lots of storage during the Black Friday sale as you'll be saving some money on what would be a really expensive package.
If you're someone who uses their phone for work a lot, taking lots and lots of pictures, 4K videos and using lots of different apps, 512GB or even the 1T will do the job and you'll almost never have to think about storage again.
2. Buy a SIM-free iPhone 14 for even bigger savings
Buying a SIM-free device is always the cheaper option in the long term, because more often than not you can find cheaper phone contract deals by themselves rather than as part of a iPhone deal package. And especially during Black Friday, when SIM-free devices are already discounted, you can make yourself great deals by using this 'trick'.
Obviously not everyone can afford to spend over $700/£700 in one go, but it's worth have a think about it, just in case.
3. Trade in your old phone
Apple has its own trade-in service where you can get up to $720 in credit to spend on your new device and it's always worth checking it out. Retailers and carriers also offer their own trade-in systems that might save you some money.
There's also the option of selling your device through sites like Sellmymobile, which aggregates different tech recycling websites to bring you the best prices available right now. You'll be able to see their TrustPilot scores, how long you'll wait to get paid and how much money you'll get.
Top 3 iPhone 14 to look out for
The best Apple iPhone
Weight: 240g | Dimensions: 160.7 x 77.6 x 7.9mm | OS: iOS 16 | Screen size: 6.7-inch | Resolution: 1290 x 2796 | CPU: A16 Bionic | RAM: 6GB | Storage: 128GB/256GB/512GB/1TB | Battery: 4,323mAh | Rear camera: 48MP+12MP+12MP | Front camera: 12MP
The latest everything iPhone brings a higher resolution camera, better battery life, more performance, all-new functionality and... no notch, to the table.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max takes over as the new head of the household in Apple's iPhone portfolio offering the same sizeable 6.7-inch 120Hz display as last year but granting it now power efficient always-on functionality and ditching the long-standing notch in favor of the new Dynamic Island.
The iOS 16-based (out the box at least) user experience offers a number of new features, and works with the Dynamic Island to offer adaptive functionality from this new display element that breaks away from the bezel.
For the iPhone 14 generation, only the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max get a taste of Apple's latest and greatest mobile silicon – the A16 Bionic – which delivers class-leading performance and improved power efficiency over its predecessor.

The power of the Pro Max made more pocketable
Weight: 206g | Dimensions: 147.5 x 71.5 x 7.9mm | OS: iOS 16 | Screen size: 6.1-inch | Resolution: 1179 x 2556 | CPU: A16 Bionic | RAM: 6GB | Storage: 128GB/256GB/512GB/1TB | Battery: 3,200mAh | Rear camera: 48MP+12MP+12MP | Front camera: 12MP
If the iPhone 14 Pro Max is too big or too expensive for your tastes, the standard iPhone 14 Pro is the perfect antidote.
The latest Apple A16 Bionic chip underpins one of Apple's best iPhones ever, not to mention it's now one of the most powerful phones on the market. While the 6.1-inch screen size remains from its predecessor (the iPhone 13 Pro), like the 14 Pro Max, this generation of Pro shrugs the notch in favor of the new Dynamic Island – a smart new cutout within the display that houses the Face ID components but also adapts to offer a range of functionality, from music playback controls to connecting AirPods and more.
The rear triple camera is now fronted by a 48MP main sensor that takes better stills and video than any of its predecessors while also serving as the most versatile iPhone camera to date; narrowing the gap with key camera rivals, from the likes of Samsung and beyond.
Provided you can swing the high asking price, the 14 Pro operates as one of the most capable phones on the market, while also being more pocket friendly than the Pro Max.

A minor but powerful upgrade
Weight: 172g | Dimensions: 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.8mm | OS: iOS 16 | Screen size: 6.1-inch | Resolution: 1170 x 2532 | CPU: A15 Bionic | RAM: 6GB | Storage: 128GB/256GB/512GB | Battery: 3,279mAh | Rear camera: 12MP+12MP | Front camera: 12MP
Apple made an interesting move with its iPhone 14 lineup, splitting chipsets between the standard and Pro models. As such, the base iPhone 14 uses the same A15 Bionic chipset as the previous year's iPhone 13 Pro (the one with a five-core GPU).
In real-world use, this differentiation will make very little difference, with superb performance and benchmarking results that stand strong against most Android rivals.
Along with the chip, Apple has also pull the 13 Pro's superior 12MP main camera onto the iPhone 14, while the notch (which was made smaller with the 13 series) now plays host to a new slicker autofocus-capable 12 MP front-facing camera.
