When you walk into an Apple Store, carrier store, or another retailer to buy the new iPhone 13, you have a few purchasing options. You can pay in full for the phone outright; buy it on a monthly installment plan, or get it for free with a trade-in and two-year contract extension (through select carriers only).
Before you buy the new M1 iPhone 13, factor out the following:
-How much storage do you need? Is it worth paying more for more storage upfront if you don’t think you’ll use it all?
-How important is having the latest and greatest iPhone? The new M1 iPhone 13 will cost more than last year’s iPhone 12. How much are you willing to spend on the latest and greatest Apple device?
-What’s your budget? How much can you realistically afford to spend on a new iPhone every month
-Are you willing to pay the full price upfront or in monthly installments? This simply comes down to personal preference and your budget.
-What’s your carrier? The new iPhone 13 is compatible with all major carriers, but you may get a better deal through your carrier of choice.
-Do you need to trade in your old iPhone? If you have an iPhone that’s in good condition, you may be able to trade it in to offset the cost of the new M1 iPhone 13.
-Where will you buy the new iPhone 13? From Apple, a carrier, or another retailer Pricing and availability will vary depending on where you purchase your new iPhone. For instance, Apple typically has the newest iPhones available for purchase on their website and in physical Apple Stores as soon as they’re released. However, carrier stores and other retailers may have a limited stock or not have the newest iPhones available for purchase right away.
-What color M1 iPhone 13 do you want? The new iPhone 13 comes in six different colors: black, white, red, green, blue, and yellow.
When you have considered all of these factors, you’ll be ready to make your purchase and enjoy your new M1 iPhone 13.
If you’re interested in buying the iPhone 13 outright, it’ll cost you $699 for the base model with 64GB of storage. If you need more storage, you can upgrade to 128GB for $749 or 256GB for $849.
If you don’t want to pay the full price upfront, you can opt for a monthly installment plan. For the 64GB iPhone 13, you’ll be paying $29.12 per month for 24 months. The 128GB model will cost you $32.08 per month for 24 months, and the 256GB model will cost you $35.04 per month for 24 months.
If you have an eligible trade-in, you can get the new iPhone 13 for free with a two-year contract extension. To be eligible, your trade-in must be an iPhone 6s or later in good condition. If you don’t have a trade-in, or if your trade-in isn’t eligible, you’ll still be able to get the new iPhone 13, but you’ll have to pay the full price upfront.
When you’re ready to buy, you can head to Apple’s website, an Apple Store, or a carrier store. You can also order the new iPhone 13 online from a variety of retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, and Target.
