Apple officially launched the iPhone 13 range back in September 2021. There’s no dramatic redesign (apart from a diagonal orientation of the cameras), but you do get an improved display, better cameras, a stronger battery, and improved performance with an upgraded A15 Bionic processor.
Following the same convention as its predecessor, there are four models: the iPhone 13, 13 Pro, 13 Pro Max, and 13 mini – all of which, once again, support 5G.
The iPhone 13 range is no-doubt premium, starting at $699/£679, but there are great deals to be had on Apple’s latest smartphone as long as you know where to look. We’ve hand-picked the very best deals available on the iPhone 13 range in the US and UK this August to help you save some money.
New colours: green & alpine green
In March 2022, Apple announced two new colours. The first is alpine green, which is available on the 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, adding to the sierra blue, graphite, gold, and silver colours already available.
The other is, simply, green. That’s available on the iPhone 13 and 13 mini, and is a bit darker than alpine green. It is in addition to (PRODUCT)RED, starlight, midnight, blue, and pink.
You can buy an alpine green iPhone Pro or Pro Max from Apple, as well as many of the other retailers and networks we list below including EE in the UK and AT&T in the US.
The green iPhone 13 and 13 mini are also available to buy from Apple – and other retailers listed below – following release on 18 March.
Below are all the best places to buy any model of iPhone 13 in the UK and US, whether you’re buying SIM-free or on contract.
