There are four phones in Apple's iPhone 13 lineup, and we'll explain how they compare spec by spec.
It's getting quite complicated to pick an iPhone. This year, Apple's lineup includes four models, the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini, and the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max. There are also a number of color options, storage capacities and other differences that make the choice of which iPhone to buy just a little more confusing. (Want to be more confused? The iPhone SE 3 and iPhone 14 are rumored, too.)

Apple announced its new iPhone lineup at its September event alongside the Apple Watch 7, iPad Mini 6 and updated entry-level iPad. The updated iPhone runs on iOS 15, which is now publicly available to install, and features a few camera upgrades, upped storage, a new A15 Bionic processor and more. (Here's how the iPhone 13 compares to the iPhone 12 lineup, and how how the iPhone 13 compares to the iPhone 13 Mini.) Although the iPhone 13 lineup mirrors the iPhone 12, Apple's 2021 iPhones offer a new design, updated cameras and feature upgrades for a similar price as 2020's iPhone 12 models. Here's everything to know.

Price: iPhone 13 line (mostly) matches the cost of its predecessor

The iPhone 13 lineup mostly mimics the pricing for the iPhone 12. Although Apple has since done away with the 64GB storage option for its standard and Mini options, the pricing of the iPhone 13 have stayed the same. The iPhone 13 Mini starts at $699 for 128GB of storage. The standard iPhone 13 starts at $799, the Pro starts at $999 and Pro Max at $1,099.

The prices for the Pro versions are similar to other high-end smartphone models like the Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra, which cost $1,000 and $1,200, respectively.
