Black Friday iPhones
The best iPhones for nomads and travelers

If you’re looking to buy an unlocked iPhone for this Cyber Monday or Black Friday, I’m guessing you want something for traveling and/or live an active lifestyle. Unlocked iPhones are generally able to work on different carriers all around the world.

The best battery life and bang for the buck: Black Friday iPhone XR unlocked

Since the iPhone XR was released in 2018, there are already a lot of unlocked models floating around on the refurbished market. This is a great phone to nab right now, even when it isn't Black Friday or Cyber Monday. If you want to read more about iPhone XR deals and price drops go ahead and click on the previous link :)

Just like the XR, but with better cameras: Black Friday iPhone 11 unlocked

It’s really quite simple: the iPhone 11 is almost identical to the iPhone XR, except it has a more advanced camera system and a slightly newer processor inside. If you’re willing to spend a little more money to have an additional lens in your iPhone camera, consider buying the iPhone 11 over the iPhone XR. Note: that additional lens may not sound like much, but the iPhone 11 also has a “night mode” for taking extra clear photos at night without the flash.

Just the right size: Black Friday iPhone X and XS unlocked

The unlocked iPhone X and unlocked iPhone XS both have a smaller size than the XR and 11, but I honestly prefer this form factor because it’s easier to use one-handed. These models also come equipped with OLED displays, which result in slightly more vibrant colors. Some users, however, may prefer the more neutral displays on the XR and 11. The 11 and XR also feature more battery life than the sleeker X and XS.
