Looking to bag a new flagship without paying that hefty price tag? We've rounded up all of the best Apple iPhone 15 deals across all four new models right here on this page. Regardless of whether you're looking to trade-in, buy a device outright, or pick one up with a plan, you'll find the cheapest options lined up and compared just below.
In general, the best iPhone 15 deals tend to revolve around trade-in rebates; of which there are several options available. We'd highlight AT&T and Verizon's promotions as the strongest since both carriers offer an impressive discount of up to $1,000 off the Pro models. The biggest caveat with this carrier iPhone 15 deals is that they are generally tied to a new unlimited data plan, which can be pricey. Those who want to cut out the plan will want to check out Apple's own trade-in rebates of up to $650 for unlocked devices specifically.
As a brief overview, the iPhone 15 range features upgrades to the chipset and camera, and for the standard and plus device - the inclusion of the Dynamic Island display. As you'd imagine, most of the crucial upgrades are concentrated on the Pro models, although every entry has had a decent refresh - including the overall look of the range.
If you're interested in a full detailed run-down of each device, you can head straight on over to our in-depth iPhone 15 review, iPhone 15 Plus review, iPhone 15 Pro review, or iPhone 15 Pro Max review pages. Alternatively, those in a rush can find a quick overview of the range alongside device specs at the bottom of the page. You can also check out our main iPhone deals hub if you're interested in promotions on the older devices.
Today's best iPhone 15 deals
Apple iPhone 15: up to $1,000 off with a trade-in, plus free Apple TV 4K at Verizon
Black Friday special: Verizon has just launched a superb Holiday season deal on the iPhone 15 series, offering a free Apple TV 4K with every device. The carrier has also brought back the fantastic trade-in rebate from the initial preorders phase that allows you to trade-in any iPhone in any condition to get up to $1,000 off alongside a new line on an unlimited data plan. You can also get an additional $280 off an iPad and bundle in an Apple Watch for just $5 per month, although those device lines are paid separately. See this deal on the iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, or iPhone 15 Plus.
Apple iPhone 15: up to $1,000 off with a trade-in at AT&T
AT&T is offering superb trade-in rebates of up to $1,000 on the Pro models and up to $800 off the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus - all a match for the best rebates we've seen from the carrier. In addition, these rebates are available to both new and existing customers looking to upgrade, which makes it a flexible all-around choice if AT&T is your carrier of choice. Note, however, that you will still need that pricey 36-month unlimited data plan to be eligible for this particular saving. See this deal on the iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, or iPhone 15 Plus.
Apple iPhone 15: up to $650 off with a trade-in at Apple
You won't find the best trade-in rebates with Apple's own iPhone 15 deals, but you will find options for unlocked devices specifically. Right now, you can get up to $650 off with a trade-in at the official store, which is still pretty good and enough to cut that hefty price tag for a new model right down to size. To get the full amount ($650), you'll have to trade in an iPhone 14 Pro Max or equivalent device, although those handing over an iPhone 14 can still get a decent $430 off a new device.
Apple iPhone 15: device plus unlimited plan for $60/mo at Boost Infinite
Here's a pretty awesome iPhone 15 deal that's new for this year. The company behind Boost Mobile has launched a new service specifically for iPhones over at its Boost Infinite site. This promotion offers you a completely unlimited data plan and an iPhone 15 Pro for just $60 per month. That's pretty damn great value by itself but Boost Infinite is also guaranteeing that you'll be able to upgrade to the next model in a year's time free of charge. Since this one isn't tied to the usual trade-in rebates at the major carriers it's one of the best iPhone 15 deals available in regard to barrier to entry. You could also potentially trade-in your device elsewhere then sign up at Boost Infinite with this promotion for even extra value.
Apple iPhone 15: up to $830 off with a trade-in at Xfinity Mobile
If you're looking to get away from the big carriers, Xfinity Mobile could be a great choice for iPhone 15 deals today. This carrier is currently offering up to $830 off with a trade-in, which isn't the biggest saving out there right now - but one that's offset nicely by the generally lower plan prices at Xfinity (versus the big names). Even if you're not looking to trade you can still get $400 off with a new line on a plan so definitely don't discount Xfinity. See this deal on the iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, or iPhone 15 Plus.
Apple iPhone 15: up to $1,000 off with a trade-in at Best Buy
Another good option for iPhone 15 deals 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.
iPhone 15 deals: FAQ
Should I wait until Black Friday to buy an iPhone 15?
Good question. As most of our readers probably already know, Black Friday is just around the corner now, and generally speaking, it's the best time all year to pick up tech at a discount. Things are a little more complicated when it comes to phones, however.
For example, we generally don't see the big carrier trade-in rebates get any better than the $800 / $1,000 maximum you can generally obtain at various points over the year. Since the big carriers likely make most of their profit from the pricey unlimited data plans they offer, they're generally pretty generous with those trade rebates regardless of whether it's Black Friday or not.
Where we might see improvement is with things like free gifts. Apple gave away free gift cards with every purchase and Verizon gave away free iPads and Apple Watches with every iPhone bought on an unlimited data plan last year. The obvious catch with Verizon's freebies is that the cellular lines for these devices are paid for seperately, so it's not a completely free device when viewed in context.
So, as a general rule of thumb, if you're mostly focused on getting a discount on a device via a trade-in, then waiting it out until Black Friday may not yield significantly greater returns. If you're willing to wait it out and see if you can get a free gift or similar, however, then there's a case for holding off - especially since devices are readily available at most retailers currently with no delivery delays.
Is the iPhone 15 worth upgrading to?
- iPhone 15 and 15 Plus get Dynamic Island
- 48MP main camera across all models
- A17 Bionic Pro chipset on the 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max
- Titanium Chassis on the Pro models
- All models have a slightly rounded-off design
Tough question - and one that's going to depend heavily on your device preferences and trade-in eligibility. If you're going to be able to get a good rebate - such as $600 to $800 off - then it's likely worth opting for an upgrade if your plan allows. As a whole, the new iPhone 15 range sports a good range of new features, hardware, and a design that's been more heavily refreshed than the last few iterations.
As you'd expect, the vast majority of upgrades are concentrated on the 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max but all models have had some significant tweaks for this generation. The two more premium handsets will now feature a Titanium chassis with a lower weight, a beefed-up camera system capable of 4K video at 60FPS and 5x optical zoom, and a shiny new A17 Pro chip that's supercharged for gaming and AI integration.
For the standard 15 and 15 Plus, you'll get the same 48MP main camera and A16 Bionic chipset from last year's iPhone 14 Pro, as well as the excellent Dynamic Island feature on the display. Note that across all devices, the Dynamic Island functionality has been improved to support more widgets and multitasking. All devices in the range also now sport slightly rounded-off edges on the back, which is a departure from the iPhone 13 and 14's more defined edges.
How much does the iPhone 15 range cost?
|Header Cell - Column 0||128GB||256GB||512GB||1TB|
|iPhone 15 Plus||$899||$999||$1199||N/A|
|iPhone 15 Pro||$999||$1099||$1299||$1499|
|iPhone 15 Pro Max||$1,099||$1199||$1399||$1599|
Which model does TechRadar recommend?
- The Pro Max is usually our favorite device
- The Pro models carry the biggest upgrades
- Don't discount the standard iPhone 15, however
We'd probably recommend going for the Pro Max if you can get a good trade-in deal - might as well go for the best of the best, right? The Pro Max is definitely our favorite in the range since it carries the most significant upgrades. As with previous iterations, we currently rank it as the best iPhone money can buy.
It is worth noting, however, that the iPhone 15 is a fantastic device for most users. For example, the camera improvements and excellent A16 Bionic chipset still put it ahead of most of the competition for 2023 - and provide more than enough power to zip through all the daily tasks. Our only complaint? The 60Hz display and the fact the new USB-C port is only capable of USB 2.0 speeds. These aren't deal breakers, but they are behind the equivalent specs featured on the latest Galaxy S23, for example. If you're not bothered about super-fast charging and data speeds over cable or having a super high refresh rate on your display, however, then the standard iPhone 15 is a great choice.

Apple iPhone 15: up to $1,000 off with a trade-in at Verizon
Verizon has its own excellent iPhone 15 deals this week, which again revolve around record trade-in rebates of up to $1,000 off the Pro models and up to $800 off the standard models. This is essentially the 'usual' trade-in rebate from Verizon but those picking up a device on a new line will benefit massively from the more relaxed criteria needed to get the maximum rebate. Put simply, you can hand over any iPhone model in any condition with a new line to get a Pro model for free. You can also get an additional $280 off an iPad and bundle in an Apple Watch for just $5 per month, although those device lines are paid separately. See this deal on the iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, or iPhone 15 Plus.
