Apple's current flagship, the iPhone 14, has taken the iPhone 13's spot as the top-tier model -- which means deals on the iPhone 13 lineup have become much easier to find. If you don't need the latest and greatest Apple release, going for the previous-gen model could save you a decent chunk of change.

First, it's important to note that the iPhone 13 saw a significant price drop once a new iPhone model hit the scene, with the standard base model decreasing to $699 (from $799). The iPhone 13 Mini is also going for $100 less these days. And with trade-in offers and carrier deals, you can get your hands on an iPhone 13 for much less than that.

iPhone 13 Pro Max
Sarah Tew/CNET

Despite no longer being the latest model, the iPhone 13 still packs a punch and would be a solid upgrade for a lot of folks -- and it's still our pick for the best iPhone when it comes to value. It has essentially the same design, screen and A15 Bionic processor as the iPhone 14, as well as 5G support, MagSafe charging and cameras that are on par with those seen on the previous iPhone 12 Pro Max.

If that sounds like the iPhone for you, read on for our top recommendations when it comes to iPhone 13 deals.

What colors does the iPhone 13 come in?

A row of Apple iPhone 13 cases from dark to light colors against a yellow background.

The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini come in six different colors: green, pink, blue, midnight, starlight white and Product Red. Cases come in a much wider range of hues and patterns.

How much does the iPhone 13 cost?

The two available models of the iPhone 13 have different prices that change depending on the amount of storage. Pricing for each model starts at:

  • iPhone 13 Mini: $599
  • iPhone 13: $699

Best iPhone 13 deals

Most retailers and carriers, including Apple itself, are offering great deals on the iPhone 13. If you've got an older iPhone that you're looking to trade in, you can save hundreds on a new model or save with special offers from carriers. We've rounded up some of the best deals out there right now.

We'll keep updating this page as new offers become available, so check back if your carrier or preferred retailer isn't listed below.

Use Apple's trade-in service and save hundreds off your iPhone 13 purchase. While its site quotes up to $630 off right now, the higher prices are for handing over an iPhone 13 model, which you're unlikely to be doing when buying one. The highest price paid for an older model is $440 for the iPhone 12 Pro Max or $300 for the standard iPhone 12. If you're financing the purchase, Apple will apply the trade-in amount as credit after it has inspected the device you send in, or it will refund the trade-in amount to your original purchasing method if you paid in full upfront.

Grab an iPhone 13 from $11 per month via AT&T without having to trade in an old device. The deal requires that you activate or maintain eligible unlimited wireless service with the $255 to $334 discount being applied via bill credits over 36 months.

Verizon is offering up savings on both the regular iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Mini. You can get in on the savings, which will be applied as bill credits over 36 months, by taking out the device on a new line on an unlimited plan or by upgrading an existing line and trading in your old phone. You can get $700 off an iPhone 13 with a new line or $600 off an iPhone 13 Mini (making the latter effectively free). Or upgrade your existing line with a trade-in credit of up to $600. New customers can also benefit from an extra $200 Verizon credit for switching. There's an iPad or Apple Watch promotion available too, but note that each device will require its own service plan.

Sprint is offering savings that could work if you need more than one line. Right now you can save up to $700 off a second iPhone 13 when you activate two or more qualifying lines. Existing customers can also cash in on this deal if they choose to add a line.

Right now T-Mobile is offering with up to $830 off an iPhone 13 with an eligible trade in and a new line. Or you can get one for free with a trade-in if you have or switch to T-Mobile's Go5G Plus plan. Unsurprisingly, you can also take advantage of the buy-one-get-$700-off-another sale here (though you'll need a new line of service for that device, too).
