Here are all the major differences between the four models of Apple's newest iPhone lineup.
Apple Event

Apple announced its new iPhone lineup on Tuesday at its September event alongside the Apple Watch 7, iPad Mini 6 and updated entry level iPad. The new lineup, named the iPhone 13, mirrors last year's iPhone 12 collection with a standard, Mini, Pro and Pro Max version. The updated iPhone runs on iOS 15, which will be publicly available to install next week, and features a few camera upgrades, upped storage, a new A15 Bionic processor and more. (Here's how and when you can preorder the iPhone 13.)

We were fairly certain there would be four iPhone 13 variants in advance of Apple's big event, just like last year's iPhone 12 lineup (though the future of the iPhone Mini is not so certain). The four-model lineup for the iPhone 13 was predicted previously by industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The iPhone 13 lineup was also spotted in a filing with the Federal Communications Commission for a revised MagSafe charger. The filing referenced the four new iPhone models alongside the four "legacy" iPhone 12 models: the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max ahead of Tuesday's event.

The iPhone 13 models vary in a number of key ways. First of all, storage size. Not only is the iPhone 13's starting storage impressive -- the standard and Mini model are offered in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB options -- but the Pro and Pro Max storage is downright huge. You can get one of the Pro models with a whopping 1TB of storage.

Although the iPhone 13 lineup mirrors the iPhone 12, Apple's 2021 iPhones features a slightly new design, updated camera and feature upgrades for a similar price as 2020's iPhone 12 models.

Here's everything we know about the iPhone 13 collection after Apple's September event, and how each model differs from each other.
