If you are looking for an iPhone Black Friday 2013 deal you are in luck. While the iPhone was not discounted much on Black Friday last year or the year before, several retailers are cutting the price of the new iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c on Thanksgiving or Black Friday.
The best deals in terms of value are for the iPhone 5s, which is using the latest tech and features like Touch ID and a better overall camera experience.
Still when it comes to the absolute best iPhone Black Friday 2013 deal, it will be hard for many bargain shoppers to resist a deal that essentially pays them to walk out the door with a new iPhone and $50 for the purchase.
All of these iPhone Black Friday 2013 deals require users to sign a new two-year contract, and they will need to be eligible for an upgrade. The deals are good for Sprint, AT&T and Verizon, though some stores may only offer the iPhone Black Friday 2013 deals for select carriers so check that out before waiting in line.
The iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c both use a 4-inch Retina Display and an 8MP camera, but the iPhone 5s uses a newer 64-bit processor that enables more software features and more power for games. The iPhone 5s is made of aluminum while the iPhone 5c is available in plastic.
