Where to buy an iPhone
Updated 12/07/17: Added some new Best Buy deals.
When the original iPhone went on sale a decade ago, there was no asking where you should buy one. The only possible options were the Apple Store (if you were lucky enough to live near one) or AT&T carrier store. The bigger concern was who had any in stock!
Today, the iPhone is sold all over. Every carrier store has it, Apple Stores are all over the place, big-box retailers like Best Buy and Target carry them, and of course, you have a seemingly endless number of online options. So...where should you buy your iPhone from? The answer can be complicated, so let’s break down some of the most common options.
