Black Friday is the biggest shopping event of the season and it’s often the best time to get a great deal on all the tech gadgets you’re looking for. In 2022, Black Friday is technically November 25, but it’s sort of become an entire “season” in itself, with sales stretching several days before and after, often changing over time.
Looking for a great deal on an iPhone during Black Friday can be complicated. In the US, most of the deals come from carriers, who have mostly closed deals on new iPhones since they launched in September, but often advertise the offers as new. The deals almost always come with a ton of terms and conditions that might not make them a good deal, depending on how willing you are to be locked into a particular carrier and plan.
In the UK it’s a little less complicated, with regular discounts from specific suppliers. We’ll highlight the best of them here.
NB: Apple issued a rare warning in early November that supply for iPhone 14 Pro models will be particularly tight this holiday season. So expect late shipments and consider looking at other colors or storage allocations – here’s a guide to your options.
Apple doesn’t keep Black Friday sale but rather holds a four-day event shop event where when you buy a new Apple product you get a free Apple gift card, which can be used to buy more Apple stuff (or apps or in-app purchases). This year’s Apple Shopping event is November 25-28.
$50/£50 Apple Gift Card: iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 12 or iPhone SE. There are no discounts for the iPhone 14 line.
