Apple Event

Apple introduced several new devices on Tuesday, from new iPads to a new Apple Watch and four models of the long-awaited -- and heavily rumored -- iPhone 13. Preorders for the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max begin Friday, Sept. 17 at 5 a.m. PT (8 a.m. ET). Although the largest of the pack starts at over $1,000, some people may get the new phone at a fraction of the cost, thanks to carriers' sometimes complicated trade-in offers to slash hundreds of dollars off the iPhone price. In fact, you can even get a new iPhone for as little as $0 with an AT&T trade-in deal (see below for details).

The iPhone 13's notable features are a step above the iPhone 12, including an updated camera system with a new Cinematic video mode; the new A15 Bionic chip; longer battery life and 128GB starting storage capacity. Alongside the iPhone 13, Apple also announced the final version of iOS 15 (here's when and how to download and install iOS 15) and a few other big surprises, such as Smart Data mode and two new colors -- Sierra blue and pink.

Let's dive into the iPhone 13 pricing, discounts and carrier preorders that may save you some money on the newest model. This story will continue to be updated as more preorder and pricing information comes in from carriers and retail stores.

What is the iPhone 13 release date, after I preorder?

Apple announced that preorders for all new iPhone 13 models will begin on Friday, Sept 17 at 5 a.m. PT (8 a.m. ET). The phones will arrive in stores on Sept. 24. The first wave of preorder purchases is also set to arrive by Sept. 24.

In our experience, popular colors and configurations that "sell out" after the first wave of orders see later delivery windows, even if you purchase the iPhone shortly after the preorder window opens.
