There’s a major price cut coming to a highly sought-after iPhone, folks. After Apple unveiled the iPhone 13 lineup at its fall keynote on Tuesday, Sept. 14, there’s a lot more to look forward to that doesn’t include new devices. If you haven’t upgraded your phone in a while, you’ll want to know about this iPhone 12 price drop after the 13 announcement, because it’s pretty major.
While a new iPhone announcement might make you think you need the latest and greatest, you might want to consider the iPhone 12 if you’re looking for a budget-friendly buy. Now that you can officially preorder the iPhone 13 beginning on Friday, Sept. 17, the prices of older iPhones are dropping. With iPhone 13 pricing identical to the original prices of the iPhone 12 lineup, you might want to save and buy last year’s model. When the iPhone 12 models were first released in October 2020, they were priced at $699 for the iPhone 12 mini, $799 for the flagship iPhone 12, $999 for the iPhone 12 Pro, and $1,099 for the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Now that the iPhone 13 lineup is finally here, the iPhone 12 devices are significantly cheaper.
As of Sept. 14, iPhone 12 is selling for $699, which is $100 less than its 2020 price of $799. Additionally, the iPhone 12 mini is also $100 off of the original price and is selling for $599 instead of $699.
The iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max are no longer on Apple’s website, but the prices are also expected to drop on those models when you buy from certain carriers like Boost Mobile.
If you’re still holding out for the iPhone 13, you can preorder it on Sept. 17 or wait until it officially drops in stores on Sept. 24.
