If you’re looking for Apple’s latest device, don’t wait – iPhone 13 Pro pre-order deals will be live Friday 17 September. What we’ve thought (in our humble opinion) is the best option for saving that hard earned cash down. AT&T, Apple, Verizon, and many other favorites include but take note — not all have announced concrete details for their initial iPhone 13 pre-order deals. In these cases, we’ve included some forecasts of what we expect to see based on what we’ve seen on other devices before.

Apple iPhone 13 Pro launches for $999 – exactly the same as last year’s iPhone 12 Pro. Is it worth the extra cash? Well, on the surface both the devices look surprisingly similar but several design refinements and internal upgrades mean that the 13 Pro is by far the more powerful device.

A nifty new OLED display capable of a 120Hz refresh rate and the new Apple A15 Bionic chip means the iPhone 13 Pro is in direct competition with the most powerful Android flagships in 2021. It is expensive, but is definitely going to be a worthwhile investment for those people. Looking for something that feels really premium and has the power to back it up.


As always with these high-end devices, the best iPhone 13 Pro deals at launch will revolve around trade-in discounts. If you have a 12 Pro or a slightly older device you can see savings of up to $700 on this latest device – a pretty tasty savings indeed that largely offsets that higher asking price.

If you want to read more about what upgrades this powerful new device is packing, you’ll find a full specs breakdown and mini-review right below this week’s best iPhone 13 Pro pre-order deals.

Apple iPhone 13 Pro: Trade-in at AT&T and Save $700 With the New Unlimited Plan
AT&T’s initial round of iPhone 13 Pro deals will score you upwards of $700 with trade-ins and new unlimited data plans — an amount that’s in line with previous offerings from the carrier. In short, it is a Meaningful Save if you’re eligible and you can get $200 off a new Apple Watch Series 7 when you buy two devices.
Total cost: $299 | Monthly cost: $9.6 (30 months)View Deals

Apple iPhone 13 Pro: $999 $209 with eligible trade-in at Apple
If you’re going to unlock, we’d definitely recommend checking out the official Apple Store trade-in program. Its current maximum discount of up to $790 is the biggest discount ever from the official store and a great option if you have an older Apple device that’s ready to hand over. Carrier devices are also available here, but this is definitely our pick for unlocked.
Total cost: $209 (maximum savings)View Deals

Apple iPhone 13 Pro: $100 off pre-order bonus (confirmed), plus $800 off with trade-in (required)
Walmart’s page has confirmed that all iPhone 13 Pro pre-orders will come home with a nifty $100 savings. We expect that’s not all — this retailer usually offers big trade-offs on carrier devices as well, so we’d be surprised if it didn’t. Savings typically range from $700 to $800, so we base our estimate on the previous model.
Total cost: $0 (AT&T) | $0 (Verizon)View Deals

Apple iPhone 13 Pro: $200 gift card, plus free HomePod Mini with Switch on Visible
If you’re looking to pair your iPhone 13 Pro pre-order with a cheap unlimited 5G data plan, consider Visible. This carrier offers unlimited plans for as little as $25 per month, plus some great free goodies for those who switch from another carrier and get the 13 Pro. Right now it’s offering a $200 gift card to be exact, plus a free Apple HomePod mini smart speaker.
Total cost: $999View Deals

iPhone 13 Pro Pre-Order Deals We Expect:

Apple iPhone 13 Pro: Save up to $700 with a trade-in, plus $500 with a Switch at Verizon
We don’t have concrete confirmation for Verizon’s iPhone 13 Pro pre-order deals yet, but we expect the carrier to offer trade-ins in the rough ballpark of $700 to $1,000 at launch. A pretty normal deal over the past few months on 12-series has been a bonus for those who are switching from another carrier, so that’s also quite likely.
Total cost: $0 (w/ business) | Monthly cost: $0 (24 months)View Deals

Apple iPhone 13 Pro: Save up to $900 by trading at Best Buy
Best Buy will be the second major online retailer to offer carrier devices. Unlike Walmart, there’s no concrete information for what its initial iPhone 13 Pro deals will be yet, but again it’s likely this will be big trade-offs. This retailer also sometimes offers activation discounts, so that’s a possible option as well.
Total cost: $0 (AT&T) | $0 (Verizon) | $0 (Sprint / T-Mobile)View Deals

iPhone 13 Pro Deals: What You Need to Know

Another year, another Apple flagship to consider – this time the iPhone 13 Pro. At first glance, its $999 price tag and overall aesthetic are similar to last year’s iPhone 12 Pro, but take a look at the specs sheet and you’ll see that there’s more to do with these new devices than meets the eye.

First, an upgraded OLED panel means the iPhone 13 Pro’s screen is capable of 1000 nits of peak brightness – 25% more than last year. Apple’s new Pro-Motion technology means a variable refresh rate of anywhere between 10Hz and 120Hz, depending on the content. Apple claims this helps in a big way in overall efficiency – which pairs well with this device’s upgraded battery.

Power-wise, a new A15 Bionic chip will keep everything running smoothly and some major upgrades to the camera lens mean better image stabilization, shutter speed, and low-light performance — at least, according to Apple.

As always with the Pro model, you’re getting much more premium appointments on the standard iPhone 13 and 13 mini models, namely surgical-grade stainless steel bands instead of the usual aluminum ones. The Telltale 3-lens on the back also lets people know you’re really a ‘pro’ and not just rocking a ‘standard’ device. And, if you really want to go all out, there’s also a brand new 1TB storage version this time around – that’s a lot of storage.
