Apple Event

Apple's new iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are available for preorder, and people aren't waiting for the Sept. 24 retail sale date to get their orders in.

There are other good reasons to buy an iPhone 13 now, thanks to carriers' sometimes complicated trade-in offers that can slash hundreds of dollars off the price.
