Apple’s mobile accessory universe expanded considerably with the launch of the iPhone 12 line and MagSafe, and it’s accordingly ready to treat those add-ons more like fashion items. MacRumorsnotes that Apple has launched a (currently mobile-only) iPhone 12 Studio that lets you ‘try’ MagSafe accessory combos to see how good they’ll look with your preferred phone. If you’re wondering how stylish a green iPhone 12 mini would look paired with a Plum case and a Saddle Brown wallet, you can find out with a few taps.
If you like a given look, you can name and save it to buy it later.
It won’t surprise you to hear where the idea comes from. The company is borrowing the concept from the Apple Watch Studio, which helps you customize bands and cases. Apple is clearly hoping that you’ll be more likely to buy official MagSafe accessories if you can see how well they match and buy them all with relative ease.

The Verge would greatly appreciate it if you bought a certain Samsung TV today. We make some of our money from affiliate revenue, and Black Friday in particular helps pay some of the bills! And today only, this particular TV is fifty thousand dollars off. That should make it easy for you, right?
You think it’s a typo? Some pricing error, maybe a scam where you’ll owe the full amount when all’s said and done? Nope! It’s just that the 98-inch Q900 normally costs$100,000, and Samsung is making it a win-win for everyone (particularly us!) by offering it half-off.
Wait, you’re telling me you don’t have $50,000 for a new TV? How are you going to afford a 98-inch 8K television with that kind of thinking? You can’t, of course: at the bargain price of $50,000, Samsung has finally undercut Sony’s rival 98-inch 8K TV, which costs $60,000. If you want to cover more of your wall in beautiful pixels than your neighbors, you’re going to have to step up!
OK, OK, I get it, you want something more your speed. We’re not all made of money! 88 inches will have to do, yes. You get your LG OLED screen, 8K resolution, just $29,996.99. Did I mention you can clip a $1,500 coupon and present it at checkout? In our experience, that’s definitely what people do when they buy $30,000 TV sets.

AirPods Pro have been the top-selling headphones among our readers lately, especially since they’re on sale with a record-setting $80 discount for Black Friday 2020. These wireless noise cancelling earphones will cost you $249 if you buy them from Apple, and they often drop to $219 at Amazon. Hurry over to the site right now, however, and you can pick up a pair for just $169.99! Amazon is keeping orders open even though they’re sold out, which is great considering we’re not going to see AirPods Pro hit this price for at least another year. The last time this happened when they went on sale for $199 during last year’s Black Friday sale, orders still shipped within a few weeks.
Needless to say, Sony is obviously another very popular headphones brand, and Amazon just launched a fantastic early Black Friday sale that’s packed full of the deepest discounts of the year.
Last but certainly not least, Amazon has a killer deal if you want the very best of the best. The Sony WH1000XM4 over-ear noise cancelling headphones are down to the all-time low price of $278 instead of $350. These incredible headphones continue to blow us away every single time we put them on, and now you can save some serious cash and find out for yourself what all the fuss is about!

So, this year’s Black Friday iPhone deals have landed. Are they good? Yes. Are there a ton of them to sift through? Oh boy, yes there’s a lot happening this year.
If you’re short on time, or simply curious, here are the 3 best Black Friday iPhone deals in our opinion… or at least, these are the ones that have really caught our eye.
First up is the iPhone 12 at Verizon, which through a combination of a trade-in plus switch can be picked up for effectively no cost. What makes this slightly better than the similar deals at T-Mobile (again, in our opinion), is the fact you can choose either the trade-in or switching offer, so there’s some flexibility here.
Not interested in a switch? Well, our next two favorite Black Friday iPhone deals should do the trick. How about the iPhone 11 Pro at Verizon, which can be picked up with a simple $300 online discount. Or… wait for it… this iPhone XS for $30 at A&T. Ok, so this particular iPhone is a little long in the tooth, but don’t discount it – it’s still a 2018 flagship and all you need to do is pick it up with a new unlimited plan to score it for a bargain-basement price.
Of course, this selection of three offers are just a couple of today’s many, many, Black Friday iPhone deals. Follow that link just there to see our main page, or, alternatively see today’s best sales in their entirety on our Black Friday deals page.
