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 today (November 25), but it has become something of an entire “season” unto itself, with sales stretching several days before and after, often changing over time.
Searching for a great deal on an iPhone during the Black Friday period can be tricky. In the US, most of the deals are coming from carriers, which have mostly been running deals on new iPhones since its introduction in September, but often announce offers like new. Deals almost always come with a bunch of conditions that may not be a good deal, depending on how willing you are to be tied down to a certain carrier and plan.
In the UK it’s a little less complicated, with regular discounts available from specific providers. We will highlight the best of them here.
Keep in mind: Apple issued a rare warning in early November that the supply of iPhone 14 Pro models will be especially thin this holiday season. So expect late shipments and consider looking at different colors or storage allocations – here’s a guide to your options.
Apple does not celebrate a Black Friday reduction but it lasts for four days shopping event where buying a new Apple product gets you 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 from November 25 to 28.
$50/£50 Apple Gift Card: iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 12 or iPhone SE. The iPhone 14 line is excluded from any offer.
You can check the offers on Apple’s website. If you see the message “I’ll be right back,” it means that Apple hasn’t triggered the shopping event for your location yet and you should come back later.
