Is buying the iPhone 13 now a good idea?
As mentioned earlier, we have already dealt with this query in an earlier article. In case you want a quick answer, here we go. The general consensus is that 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. However, if you have an older iPhone or a relatively new Android handset, switching to the iPhone 13 might be a good choice, especially since Apple/Verizon/AT&T offers good trade-in deals on relatively new devices.
In case you are looking to get the best price for your older iPhone model, it might also be a good idea to check for offers outside of the Apple and carrier ecosystem. Read about these options in our detailed article on the topic.
