The iPhone XR is Apple's "most affordable" model that was released last year, but that doesn't mean that everyone is going to be ok with spending the $750 that it is listed at. When compared to the XS and XS Max, the iPhone XR is definitely an easier pill to swallow, though if you could save some more on the purchase, you should. It's available in a variety of colors which are sure to appeal to a lot of people, and packs some high-end specs to complete the package.

We've seen a bunch of carrier promotions around the phone. Looking to save a few bucks on the purchase? Here's where to check.

How to get the Best iPhone XR Deals

The newest iPhone models tend not to get much in the way of direct discounts, but carriers incentive new customers to join or existing customers to upgrade via trade-in deals or monthly bill credits. These change periodically, but usually involve you signing up for a lengthy contract or extending your current one. It's always worth clarifying the small print to understand exactly what you're getting into and how much it costs on the whole.

Refurbished models are the way to go if you want to avoid involving a carrier in your phone purchase. while the Apple refurb store never lists the current generation, you can find some refurb deals at Amazon or at Best Buy. Supplies are usually limited though, so it's best not to wait around if something catches your eye.

Unless you are in desperate need of one of these today, you may want to wait for Amazon's Prime Day to bring some potential savings to these items. Be sure to check out our Prime Day 2019 Deals hub to keep up to date on all the deals and everything else Prime Day related. Get an even bigger upgrade with the Best iPhone XS deals.
