We've put together all the best iPhone 13 deals that are currently available on this page, to make your next Apple smartphone purchase as simple as possible. It might seem unlikely, with the latest iPhone only hitting the stores late September 2021, but we've already seen some low iPhone 13 prices, whether you want a contract or you want to buy the handset outright, with a decent trade-in discount. 

We love the iPhone 13 as a phone for creatives, as it shines with its quality screen, camera and battery life. The iPhone 13 Pro takes things to another level with astounding camera quality and a brilliant 120Hz display (check out our guide to the best iPhone 13 Pro Max prices). The short of it is the iPhone 13 offers fantastic updates to a phone that was already impressive, upgrading pretty much every element of the iPhone 12. See our iPhone 13 review and iPhone 13 pro review for more details.

Simply scroll down for a comparison of the iPhone 13, and further still to get answers to some frequent questions about Apple's flagship smartphone. Of course, if you want an earlier, cheaper iPhone, check out our page on the best iPhone XR deals or the lowest iPhone XS Max prices.

Is the iPhone 13 good value for money?

There's no denying that Apple's iPhones retain their price well, and retail at a pretty penny. But even so, we'd categorically call the iPhone 13 good value for money (especially if you can get some dollars off the retail price). Why? First of all, the iPhone 13 sells cheaper than the iPhone 12 did when it first went on sale, and that's with all the newer tech included! That includes a faster processor with its new A15 Bionic chip, a better set of cameras with cinematic mode available, and longer battery life. And that's the for retail price of $799/£779.

However, don't expect hundreds of dollars off a new iPhone 13. As we said, it only came out in September 2021, and as the newest of all the iPhones, it's still going to be sold close to its retail price. However, if you bookmark this page and visit it regularly, you'll see the best iPhone 13 deals as and when they go live. 

What are the best iPhone 13 alternatives?

Other than the iPhone 13 mini, the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Ultra, there are a number of Android smartphones that can be considered good iPhone 13 alternatives. Top of the heap is the Samsung Galaxy S21 (see our list of the best Samsung Galaxy S21 deals). That's basically because it has a similar features list – it came out before the iPhone 13, so its processing power and camera set up is a little behind – but with the possibility of getting better deals on it.

The close next best iPhone 13 alternative for our money is the Google Pixel 6. We once heard the Google Pixel described to us by a salesman as, 'Google basically copied everything in the iPhone, but made it a little better and reduced the price'. Good sales pitch there! We can definitely confirm that it came on the market a month after the iPhone 13, and so is probably the most current alternative to the iPhone 13. It also features a fantastic camera set up, comparable battery life, but most alluring of all, a far lower asking price. You can get a Google Pixel 6 for around $599/£599, compared to $699/£699 for the iPhone 13.
