There are some great reasons to pre-order an iPhone 13 right away, but you also might want to consider putting your credit card away for the time being.
Apple’s confirmed its new batch of iPhone models and the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max are slated to go on sale in the near future.
The devices, which replace the iPhone 12 series as the company’s flagships, will go up for pre-order later on this week in the United States and other countries around the world. iPhone 13 pre-orders start on September 17th.
iPhone 13 pre-orders begin at 5AM Pacific which means you might need to stay up late, or wake up early, in order to get the iPhone 13 model you want.
The iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max look like solid additions to the company’s portfolio. The new models come with better displays, enhanced performance, improved cameras, and more.
These upgrades, and potential shipping delays, are among the reasons why you might want to consider putting in an iPhone 13 pre-order right when sales start.
If Apple Stores and retailers are open in your area, you should be able to find the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max in stock on release day next week. The iPhone 13 release date lands on September 24th.
That said, in-store stock can be unpredictable and there’s a chance you walk away empty-handed or with a model that was your second or third choice.
The cheapest iPhone 13 model, the iPhone 13 mini, starts at $699 before a trade-in while the most expensive model, the iPhone 13 Pro Max starts at $1099. These prices increase as you add additional internal storage.
Buying an iPhone 13 right away might be tempting, but spending $700 or more on a product you haven’t had a chance to try in person makes it a tough decision.
In this guide, we’ll help you decide if you should pre-order the iPhone 13. For some of you, it will be worth it. That said, many others are better off waiting.
