Good news: Black Friday and Cyber Monday mean deep discounts for iPhone lovers. They take the form of up to hundreds of dollars off top models, or additional gift cards that you can use to buy other gifts — for loved ones or yourself (we won’t tell). The savings span the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max all the way to the diminutive iPhone SE.

Black Friday officially falls on Friday, Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving. Cyber Monday follows on Nov. 26. These days, sales tend to get going around Nov. 16, and sometimes earlier. We’ll update this often as more Black Friday iPhone deals appear.

Just so you know:

  • The deals below are current as of Nov. 9, and include TargetAmazon and Best Buy.
  • CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.
  • We link to the current listing at the retailer’s website when one is available, but you may not see sale pricing reflected on the page until the sale begins.
