After months of rumors and speculation, Apple unveiled the new iPhone 15 lineup at its "Wonderlust" press event on Sept. 12. The latest flagship phones out of Cupertino include the Dynamic Island across all models, faster processors and upgraded camera hardware, and we've got all the iPhone 15 preorder info you need to be among the first to get your hands on one.
The iPhone 15 is powered by the A16 Bionic chip for faster speeds and increased power efficiency over last year's model. The iPhone 15 Pro hardware runs on Apple's A17 Pro chip for even more powerful performance. Other notable changes include a move to USB-C charging, brighter displays and upgraded ultra wideband capabilities. The iPhone 15 Pro also has a customizable Action button, a titanium-based chassis and a new periscope-style telephoto lens on the larger iPhone 15 Pro Max.

We'll be rounding up all of the best iPhone 15 preorder deals below as we see them, so be sure to keep checking back.
You can preorder your iPhone 15 or iPhone 15 Pro directly at Apple rightnow, with devices being delivered from Sept. 22. Various financing options are available, or you can opt for a carrier deal via Apple and save as much as $1,000 when you trade in your old phone.
Preorders for the latest iPhone models are now available at Walmart. You can snag the biggest trade-in discount there with as much as $1,100 off the Pro models when you purchase on a qualifying installment plan and trade in an eligible device. Note, however, that Walmart's list prices are $50 above the Apple retail price so the deal is $50 better than those below, rather than $100.
New customers or existing customers adding a new line on the Unlimited Ultimate plan can get up to $1,000 off the iPhone 15 lineup when trading in any old iPhone in any condition. Opt for the Unlimited Plus or Unlimited Welcome plans and you can get $830 or $415 off the new iPhone 15 lineup with iPhone trade-in. Upgrading customers up to $830 off an iPhone 15 device with select trade-in and select Unlimited plans.
AT&T is also offering as much as $1,000 off the iPhone 15 lineup when you trade in your existing phone on an Unlimited Your Way plan. New and existing customers are eligible whether adding a new line or not. To qualify for $1,000 credit, the minimum trade-in value must be at least $230 after device condition questions have been answered, so you won't get quite as much knocked off if you have an old or beat-up device to hand over.
New and existing customers will have a few offers to choose from at T-Mobile. You'll be able to get the iPhone 15 Pro for free ($1,000 off via 24 monthly bill credits) when you trade in an eligible device and opt for a Go5G Plus or Go5G Next plan. There will also be up to $650 off any iPhone 15 model with trade-in on Magenta Max, $350 off on Go5G and Magenta and $200 off on almost all other T-Mobile plans. Need more than one iPhone 15? You'll be able to buy one and get $700 off another when adding a new line.
Get the iPhone 15 Pro and an unlimited plan for $60 a month on Boost Infinite's Infinite Access for iPhone - - available via Amazon and directly at Boost Infinite. It's similar to Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program in that you have the opportunity to upgrade to the newest iPhone each year, but it rolls in unlimited talk, text and 5G data, plus 5GB of data while roaming in Mexico and Canada and unlimited talk and text from the US to Mexico and Canada. You don't need to trade in a device to get started, though each annual upgrade requires you to hand the old iPhone back.
