Apple iPhone 14: How to Pre-Order and Get the Best Deal


The iPhone are here!  The iPhones are here! Those exclamation points might be a bit too much since the yearly arrival of Apple’s crop is no longer met with around-the-block lines. But if you want the digital equivalent of that, you can pre-order the lineup.

The 14 and 14 Plus have improved battery life and cameras over previous models, as well as the new Crash Detection and Emergency SOS via satellite  safety features. The iPhone 14 starts at $799, while the 14 Plus starts at $899. And the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max have a new A16 Bionic chip and a Dynamic Island feature that adapts to the activities on your phone. The 14 Pro starts at $999, while the Pro Max starts at $1,099.

These are, of course, the latest iPhones, so there aren’t any discounts per se. But there are definitely ways to save. You can trade in your old phone, sign on for a carrier payment plan, and see if you qualify for bill credits. Here’s what you need to know to get the best deal.
