2. FAQ

You'll find all of this week's best iPhone 15 Pro Max deals neatly lined up and compared right here on this page. If you're looking to save some cash on this admittedly pricey flagship then you've landed on the right page as there are some awesome discounts up for grabs. We've included options here from all the major carriers, Apple, and some other notable alternatives. 

Today's best iPhone 15 Pro Max deals include up to $1,000 off with trade-in rebates at the major carriers - enough to significantly cut down the introductory price of $1,099 for the device. If you're looking for an unlocked device, then Apple also has a great trade-in program to consider, although its current maximum rebate of $650 isn't as good as the major carriers right now - it is, however, the sole choice if you want to avoid those pesky plans. Alternatively, you could also consider going for a prepaid carrier - which we've included in our roundup too. 

It's no surprise that the iPhone 15 Pro Max is incredibly popular right now. Upgrades to the camera and chipset make it the most powerful device yet, while the subtle changes to the design and new titanium chassis give it a fresher look versus the competition. Is it worth the upgrade? Well, that will depend on your needs, but today's iPhone 15 Pro Max deals could help make that decision much easier.

If you're looking for a full in-depth overview of the device, we'd highly recommend checking out our iPhone 15 Pro Max review in full.

Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: $840 off with a new line, plus a free iPad at Verizon

Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: $840 off with a new line, plus a free iPad at Verizon
We'd rank Verizon's current iPhone 15 Pro Max deal as the strongest 'big carrier' option right now - namely because you don't even need to trade-in an old device to get up to $840 off the device right now. All you need is a new line on either a Plus or Ultimate unlimited data plan and you'll be able to get a significant discount on this excellent flagship. You can also throw in a free iPad 10.2 currently or get $420 off one of the pricier iPad models alongside your phone. Note, however, that you will need to pay for an additional accessory cellular line if you claim a freebie here (usually $10/mo extra).

Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: up to $1,000 off with a trade-in at AT&T

Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: up to $1,000 off with a trade-in at AT&T
AT&T's iPhone 15 Pro Max deals have stayed steady and true since launch - with the main feature being the massive trade-in rebate of up to $1,000. Eligible with an unlimited data plan only, you can also take advantage of an additional promotion right now that allows you to add in an iPhone 15 Plus for $5.99 per month alongside your Pro Max.

Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: device and unlimited line for $70/mo at Boost Infinite

Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: device and unlimited line for $70/mo at Boost Infinite
Quite possibly the best 'non-trade-in' iPhone 15 Pro Max deal on the market is this particular promotion at Boost Infinite. This relative newcomer to the market is currently offering an outstanding all-inclusive deal where you bag yourself a device and an unlimited plan for just $70 per month. It's worth noting that this particular promotion was just $65 per month when it first debuted but $70/mo is still enough to bring the total cost to a price that's lower than some standalone plans at certain carriers. On top of that, Boost will also guarantee you a free upgrade once the next generation lands, which seems like a fantastic bonus to us.

Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: up to $1,000 off with a trade-in at Best Buy

Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: up to $1,000 off with a trade-in at Best Buy
Another good option for picking up an iPhone 15 Pro Max today, Best Buy is matching the big carrier's trade-in rebates across all devices today. While most will likely prefer to get their device directly from AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile, Best Buy is essentially offering you an alternative route to get your device here. 

Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: get a 6-month plan for free at Mint Mobile

Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: get a 6-month plan for free at Mint Mobile
The prepaid carrier Mint Mobile is one of the best options right now if you're looking to save some cash on your cell phone plan. It currently offers unlimited data plans for as little as $30 per month and a nice little introductory iPhone 15 Pro Max deal for new customers. Purchase a device outright with a six-month plan and Mint will give you an additional six months on the house. Alternatively, you could also consider trading in for an unlocked device at Apple and then bringing it over to Mint. 

Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: up to $630 off with a trade-in at Apple

Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: up to $630 off with a trade-in at Apple
If you're looking for an unlocked device, then Apple is going to be your only choice, unfortunately. The good news, however, is that Apple has its own trade-in program that offers pretty good rebates of up to $630 on fully unlocked devices. If you're handing over an iPhone 14 Pro Max in good condition, you'll be able to score the full amount here, but the iPhone 14 will still fetch up to $430.

Is the iPhone 15 Pro Max worth upgrading to?

  • A17 Bionic Pro chip offers better gaming performance
  • Quicker at AI integrated tasks
  • Upgraded zoom and sensor for camera
  • Titanium chassis reduces weight
  • USB-C port with USB 3.0 speeds

Sometimes Apple can be guilty of incremental upgrades for its next generation of flagship devices, but the iPhone 15 Pro Max features solid improvements to nearly every aspect of the device. Not only has the design received a make-over with its gorgeous brushed titanium chassis and neatly rounded-off edges, but internally it's received some significant upgrades.

At the heart of the device sits the A17 Bionic Pro, a chipset that utilizes the latest 3-nanometer process node to offer better power efficiency and overall performance for AI integration and gaming. While the chip is incrementally more powerful than the A16 for everyday tasks, it's up to 20% faster for gaming and up to twice as quick for AI-assisted tasks like photo editing, voice transcription, and auto-correct.

Camera-wise, avid mobile photographers will be glad to know that the 15 Pro Max not only features a slightly larger sensor (always handy for low-light capture) and a new 5x optical zoom that's exclusive to the Max model specifically. We're a little disappointed the Max doesn't have a 10x periscope zoom like the Galaxy S23 Ultra, but there's no doubt that the Max will take fantastic pictures thanks to the 48MP sensor and host of software tricks that Apple implements well for its photos.

Another major new addition to the iPhone 15 Pro Max is the inclusion of a new Action Button - a control that replaces the old silence/mute button that's featured on every iPhone since its inception. This one is a welcome change since not only can that action button still function as a mute, but it can also be mapped to a number of apps, widgets, and custom functions. Essentially, you're going to be able to navigate straight to your favorite apps without having to deal with the home screens and menus. 

Finally, perhaps the best new feature for the 15 Pro Max - it now has a USB-C port instead of a lightning port. This isn't exactly a first for Apple since we've had USB-C on iPads and MacBooks for a while now, but it's the first time we've seen its inclusion on an iPhone. Unlike the USB 2.0 port on the standard iPhone 15, the iPhone 15 Pro Max now supports USB 3.0 data transfer and charging speeds, which is always handy.
