Even 6 months after the launch of the iPhone 13 line, we do not expect to see any crazy price drops any time soon, since Apple products hold up their value quite well. But, if you are still looking to buy the device, here you will find all of your options.
In this article, you will find all offerings from carriers and major retailers in a simple price comparison, so that you can choose the one that is most convenient for you. If you are considering an upgrade from the iPhone 12 then I would also advise you to read our detailed comparison: iPhone 12 vs iPhone 13.
In this article, we take a look at the best iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini deals currently available for users in the US.
- Tips for finding the best deals on the iPhone 13
- Carrier deals
- Online retailers
Before we dive into the different carriers, there are a few things you will need to keep in mind. I strongly recommend you get your calculator out to figure out the exact cost you will have to pay with your own individual plan. It is well known that a carrier deal may look great with the device, but the plans themselves may be overpriced.
In case you are looking to get the best price for your older iPhone model, trading it in might not be the best solution. So it is a good idea to try your luck outside of the Apple and carrier ecosystem and this is how you can resell your iPhone device for the best possible price.
Lastly, because nobody wants to buy a phone with the color they dislike the most, I advise you to take a look at the options that are available on each page. One carrier may have the (Product)RED color available in the 256 GB version but another may not. So if you do not find the color or capacity that you want I would recommend you to check other carriers too, or perhaps an unlocked version.
On Verizon, you get several options to get the iPhone 13. With Verizon, you can buy the iPhone 13 by paying an upfront amount of $799 and avail up to $1300 in credit if you trade in an eligible device. This trade-in option is available for both existing and new Verizon customers. Anyway, here's the list of current iPhone 13 deals on Verizon.

Is buying the iPhone 13 now a good idea?
The iPhone 13 is an incremental update over the iPhone 12. Therefore, if you already own an iPhone 12, an upgrade to iPhone 13 will not be worth it – unless you just always need the newest hardware. However, if you have an older iPhone or Android handset, switching to the iPhone 13 might be a good choice, especially since Apple, Verizon, or AT&T offer good trade-in deals on relatively new devices.
