If you’re thinking about making the switch from Android to iPhone, or just need a smartphone upgrade, get ready: The best time to save money on an iPhone is...right now!

Apple recently announced the new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro with the latest and greatest bells and whistles—including 5G wireless—you can put inside a smartphone. While the newest models start at just $699 for the Apple iPhone 12 Mini, the tech giant also dropped the price on previous models.

In fact, you can pre-order the Apple iPhone 12 for $800 (or $33.33 per month for 24 months) at Verizon. Want something bigger? Pre-order the Apple iPhone 12 Pro for $1,000 (was $41.66 per month for 24 months) at Verizon too. Both phones come out on October 23.

(Verizon Communications, Inc. is the parent company of Verizon Wireless and Yahoo Life.)

Once a year, Apple usually discounts older generations of the iPhone to clear inventory for the new generation. This year is no different with price drops on last year’s iPhone 11 ($599, was $699) and iPhone XR ($499, was $749). Not too shabby.

However, Apple quietly discontinued the 2019’s iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max altogether.

Meanwhile, retailers like Amazon are always selling new and renewed models of older iPhones. At the moment, you can get the Apple iPhone SE (64GB) for as little as $350. When it was released earlier this year in April, it cost $399—that’s a savings of $49.

So unless you just can’t survive without the very latest model, check out the best iPhone deals below:
