iPhone 12 at a great price: Crazy Black Friday bargain

Apple’s iPhone 12 is currently experiencing a decent price drop if you order it from Saturn on Black Friday. However, the price is only valid for a single color.

Update from November 26th, 2021: At Saturn, we’re currently paying for that iPhone 12 in white (64 GB) only 655 euros (see at Saturn) instead of 759.99 euros – a huge price saving. The price is only valid for this one model, not for the other colors.

First of all, the obvious: The iPhone 12 (mini) and iPhone 12 Pro (Max) are of course not cheaper at Apple’s online store. On the contrary, with the increase in sales tax to the normal level in the new year (19 instead of 16 percent), Apple phones have even become more expensive again. For example, the iPhone 12 mini (64 GB) cost 778.85 euros in the previous year, and 799 euros since January 1.

iPhone 12 (mini): The beginning of the fall in prices for Apple mobile phones

In the free trade, on the other hand, people have long since stopped sticking to Apple’s recommended price, not even the higher price recommended after the tax increase – competition makes it possible. This becomes particularly clear with the two entry-level devices, because the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 can already save a few euros. For example, we can get the iPhone 12 mini (64 GB) mentioned at the beginning for a little more than 700 euros, even at well-known retailers like Amazon we are currently only paying 730 euros. One reason could be that the small model with a 5.4-inch display is not in particularly high demand – we reported.

Pro models even more stable in price

Savings can also be made with the iPhone 12, instead of paying 899 euros as with Apple, we are currently only paying 849 euros at Amazon, with less known retailers it is sometimes another 20 euros cheaper. Only with the two Pro models is the price drop not particularly well received. The reason: the scarce availability, because here the demand is strong enough. At Amazon and Co. you have to wait a little longer for a delivery, even months after the performance. A real drop in prices could take a while for the Pro models.

Which iPhone is worthwhile for whom?

But do you really need an iPhone 12 Pro? The current iPhone generation is less different and shares most of the features such as OLED screens, MagSafe or the new retro design in the style of older, angular Apple phones. Only those who need the best camera should think about buying a Pro model. The rest of the people can already use the much cheaper iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini without hesitation. The latter is worthwhile for fans of compact models who want to stow their cell phone in their pants without ugly bulges. The majority, on the other hand, can be proven to use the standard 6.1-inch model.
