Thanks to the release of the latest iPhone 13 deals (opens in new tab), the Apple iPhone 11 can actually be picked up for cheaper than you may think. Apple itself has now slashed the upfront cost on unlocked devices down to just $499 (opens in new tab) - a whole $200 cheaper than its original launch price. Recent launches from Google and Samsung have also racked up the competition, meaning carriers are often offering up significant discounts on these older Apple devices.

Unlocked deals hunters especially should check out Apple's fantastic trade-in program (opens in new tab), which can give you a straight $500 discount on a brand new iPhone 11 if you're trading a fairly recent device. It's not just Apple that is hot on the trade-in deals either, if you're willing to go with a big carrier, you can get some great discounts at both Verizon and AT&T right now, with the former even offering the device for free with a new unlimited plan in recent months.

The Apple iPhone 11 (opens in new tab) features a 6.1-inch LCD display, while the iPhone 11 Pro (opens in new tab) comes with a Super Retina XDR OLED display in either a 5.8-inch or 6.5-inch size. The iPhone 11 and 11 Pro both have updated camera hardware with a Wide and new Ultra-Wide camera on the back of the iPhone 11 and Wide, Ultra Wide and Telephoto cameras on the iPhone 11 Pro. The battery received an upgrade with Apple stating that the iPhone 11 provides a one-hour longer battery life compared to the XR, and the Pro offering four more hours of battery life when compared to the XS.

Verizon tends to flirt with a 'free' iPhone 11 deal every now and again so it's worth checking in at the site to see if it's available. Currently, you'll find the iPhone 12 for free (opens in new tab) under the usual terms - in which a new line on an unlimited data plan is needed. Simply put, since this newer device is available on the cheap, we'd go for that one instead.
