• You aren't likely to find Black Friday iPhone deals at the Apple store.
  • Most deals will be in the form of store gift cards, rather than direct savings.
  • Finding a deal on the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus will be easier than finding one for the iPhone X.

There are many reasons to buy your next iPhone directly from Apple, but getting a good deal isn't one of them.

It's no secret that the iPhone X and iPhone 8 come with a heaping dose of sticker shock. But, deal-tracking website BestBlackFriday.com predicts that Black Friday deals will be particularly sweet this year as wireless carriers and retailers try to entice budget-savvy shoppers to upgrade their smartphone.

If you want the best iPhone deals this year, you'll have to head to stores like Walmart, Best Buy, and Target on Black Friday. Amazon and eBay should have sales as well.

Here are the discounts BestBlackFriday.com has compiled so far:

  • Walmart

iPhone 8
