Let's look at the major carriers, retailers, and Apple.com and what they have to offer in terms of deals on the iPhone 13. Pre-orders have started September 17 with the phones are officially out now.
An important thing to mention is T-Mobile's Forever Upgrade program. If you buy an iPhone 13 from the carrier, you will get up to $800 trade-in credit the next time you decide you want to upgrade thanks to this new program. You need to be on a Magenta Max or T-Mobile One plan to take advantage of that offer.
Best iPhone 13 Pro Max deals
We start with the biggest and the baddest of the iPhone 13 family, the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Like the other phones from the series, the phone is available for purchase now and is available on all major carriers and on Apple's website.
Now, let's look at the deals. Verizon
is offering up to $800-$1000 off (in bill credits) across the iPhone 13 lineup, of course with eligible trade-in and select Unlimited plans. If you're willing to switch to Verizon from another carrier, you are also able to get an additional $500 off. This way, the deal means that with trade-in, Unlimited plan, and switching to the carrier the iPhone 13 Pro Max discount will amount to $1500.
Over at AT&T
, early iPhone 13 adopters are also getting a sweet discount. You can get up to $1000 off for the iPhone 13 Pro Max, of course, with an eligible trade-in and installment plan with the carrier. The discount is applied in bill credits.
T-Mobile is offering $800 off with trade-in on any phone from the iPhone 13 series, including the iPhone 13 Pro Max. On Best Buy, you can get it with $100 off (no trade-in required) on T-Mobile as well.
You are able to get it unlocked via Apple's website.
Best iPhone 13 Pro deals
The situation with the iPhone 13 Pro deals is the same as with the Pro Max, and so are the carrier offers. Verizon
gives you up to $1000 off, and $500 more if you switch, AT&T
presents you with the option to get a free iPhone 13 Pro (both offers with eligible devices you should trade in), and T-Mobile
is offering an $800 off with trade-in deal.
On Best Buy, you can get it with $100 off (no trade-in required) for T-Mo.
Best iPhone 13 deals
Verizon has sweet deal of up to $800 off with trade-in, meaning you will be getting a free iPhone 13. Of course, you need to have an installment contract with the carrier. AT&T's deals on the iPhone 13 make it possible for you to get a free iPhone 13 with eligible trade-in and any Unlimited plan. T-Mobile is giving a trade-in discount of up to $800 in bill credits here again.
And Best Buy's offer for the T-Mobile variant is also present here, you can get it with $100 off (no trade-in required).
Best iPhone 13 mini deals
Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile all offer you the smallest phone of the bunch, the iPhone 13 mini, for free, of course with eligible trade and installment plan on an eligible Unlimited plan.
Best Buy offers $100 off on the mini on T-Mobile as well.
Apart from the deals mentioned before, Verizon is offering additional promos that you can benefit from with your iPhone 13 series purchase. These are as follows:
- Get up to $250 off select iPads with the purchase of iPhone
- Get $150 off select Apple Watches with purchase of iPhone
- Apple Music at no additional cost with Get More Unlimited plan
- Six months of free Apple Arcade with the Unlimited plans "Start" and "Do More", or 12 months free with Unlimited plans "Play more" and "Get More"
As you can see, the carrier-tied deals are not just plain discounts. They come with conditions, trade-in being one of them. Trading in a smartphone with your carrier is not too complicated if you've decided to upgrade; however, it can be tricky if your phone is too old or damaged. Usually, the advertised discount amount is the one you would get if you trade in a relatively recent model in good working condition.
From retailers, Walmart is expected to shave $100 off all models, but there prices are still retail prices, and so are Amazon's and Targets. When deals pop up on these retailers, we'll make sure to include them here.
What retailers sell the iPhone 13?
As the iPhones are very popular phones, almost all major US retailers and carriers have them. The iPhone 13 is available on carriers Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and on retailers Amazon, Best Buy, Target
, and others.
Of course, the iPhone 13 phones are available first on the Apple Store.
Are there any iPhone 13 deals without a contract?
As you may know, the deals we see on iPhones are linked with a contract to a carrier, usually with an installment plan. Retailers such as Best Buy or Amazon don't even sell these 5G phones unlocked. Therefore, your best bet when you want to get the iPhone 13 unlocked is the Apple Store. The cool thing with the Apple Store is that Apple has its own trade-in program and can have good discounts even for the unlocked models.
Will the iPhone 12 go down in price?
It's understandable to expect a drop in price for previous models when a new model comes up. And with the iPhone 13, that's more or less the case. Apple's website is currently selling the iPhone 12 with a slight drop in price of around $100, but the Pro models aren't there. On retailers we expect the iPhone 12 to remain (more or less) at its retail price for quite some time, as it is still mighty and powerful, as well as popular.
Down the line though, in a couple of months after the iPhone 13 release, we might see more prominent discounts on older iPhone models.
