A new iPhone lineup is upon us, and if you can’t wait to get your mitts on Apple’s latest flagship devices, the smartphones will be available for pre-order on Friday, Sept. 17.
The pricing is identical to previous iPhone launches. The iPhone 13 mini starts at $699. If you are looking for a Pro phone with maximum storage and a high-quality camera, you could spend as much as $1,000.
These smartphones are new, so there is no way to get a discount. If you have a used phone or an existing contract, bill credits can be used to reduce the cost of a new Apple smartphone.
You can pre-order the iPhone 13 when you are able to.
iPhone pre-orders were available at midnight PT/ 3 a.m. ET back in the day. ET, leaving East Coast iPhone enthusiasts to sleepless nights. Apple has been kind to us in the past, and this time it will be our West Coast friends that will need to set an alarm.
Pre-orders for the iPhone 13 are set to go live at 8 a.m. PDT. ET on Friday, Sept. 17 in Australia, Canada, China, Germany, India, Japan, the UK, and the US.
Pre-orders in Turkey open on Oct. 1. They also open in Malaysia and South Korea on Oct. 8.
Pre-Order From Apple
Apple will sell the iPhone 13 via apple.com/store, the Apple Store app, and at Apple Stores. You can choose to pay in full or in installments. Prices will increase depending on the amount of storage you choose (see chart above).
iPhone 13: $33.29 a month for 24 months or $799 before trade-in
iPhone 13 mini: $29.12 a month for 24 months or $699 before trade-in
iPhone 13 Pro for $41.62 a month for 24 months or $999 before trade-in
iPhone 13 Pro Max for $45.79 a month for 24 months or $1,099 before trade-in
Apple offers trade-ins if you want to swap an older iPhone for a new one.
Pre-Order From AT&T
AT&T says you can get the iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 mini for $0; the iPhone 13 Pro Max for up to $1,000 off; and the iPhone 13 for up to $700 off. But you can’t just waltz into any AT&T store and walk out with a free iPhone 13.
According to AT&T, these discounts are only available if you trade in eligible items on an unlimited plan or if you purchase the device on an installment plan. That means you’ll have to buy the phone using a monthly payment plan and AT&T will apply credits to your account over 36 months.
AT&T doesn’t specify what time of day it’ll start accepting pre-orders, but they begin on Friday, Sept. 17, with general availability on Friday, Sept. 24. The iPhone 13 series will also be available at AT&T Prepaid and Cricket starting on Sept. 24.

Pre-Order From Verizon
Verizon says current and new customers can get up to $800 off an iPhone 13 with select trade-in on certain unlimited plans. Like AT&T, you’ll need to commit to an installment plan and will get a bill credit over 24 or 36 months. Verizon is also offering $500 in virtual Mastercards to cover the cost to switch from another carrier. Certain unlimited plans offer extended free trials of Apple Music and Apple Arcade. Pre-orders open Sept. 17.
Pre-Order From T-Mobile
T-Mobile is offering something called the “Forever Upgrade.” Trade in eligible smartphones and you’ll get a free iPhone 5G (or 13) on any eligible plan. Every two years thereafter, you can get $800 in trade-in value. T-Mobile claims you “can repeat that forever,” provided you make a commitment to the carrier over a lifetime.
You can still purchase a new iPhone 13 if you don’t own a device to trade in.
You can receive a free iPhone 13 Pro if you are on a Magenta Max or Sprint Max plan and you trade in qualifying phones. You can also get as much as half off an iPhone 13 Pro, or up to $500 off any new iPhone 13-series via bill credit over 30 months.
