This is due to one thing: Apple typically unveils new iPhone models in the month of September.

Experts at Macworld explained: "After a launch event, the prices of the previous-generation iPhones are likely to drop, with even Apple reducing the price of last year’s handset."

"If you want the newest iPhones then the best deals don’t tend to come before the spring and summer months," they added.

Therefore, waiting until after the newest model comes out is your best bet for purchasing a cheaper, older iPhone.

In fact, buying an older model in the summertime can set you back roughly the same amount that you would have paid for a completely new iPhone in September.

When is the best time to buy an iPhone?

While waiting until late September to buy a new iPhone is perfectly fine, if you can wait even longer, you can save more money.

In November, consumers can get Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, which can slash an iPhone's price dramatically.

Although, experts at Macworld note that "it’s fine to buy a new iPhone at any time within nine months of its launching."

That said, resellers like Amazon and Best Buy typically have deals year-round that you can catch.
