How Much Do the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max Cost?
Along with iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini, Apple had also launched two other models which were the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max. However, after the launch of the new iPhone 14 series in September 2022, Apple decided to discontinue the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max models.
This was primarily done to ensure that there was no disruption in the marketing of the new iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro. Apple has a history of doing this every year whenever there is a new model on the market.
Although it is not available on the Apple website or Apple stores, you can still buy iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max models through other carriers like Verizon or Mint Mobile.
Cost To Buy an iPhone 13 Pro at Verizon
At Verizon, for example, you can get the graphite iPhone 13 Pro, starting at $899 for the 128 GB option. You might also need to consider other costs such as the $35 activation fee through Verizon. A payment plan is also available, starting at $5 per month for 36 months.
What Are the Price Ranges for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max?
Initially, the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max were launched at the following prices:
|Storage Option||iPhone 13 Pro||iPhone 13 Pro Max|
Both of these models came in graphite, gold, silver and sierra blue colors.
Now, if you wish to buy the iPhone 13 Pro or Pro Max from other carriers, your options might be limited. These carriers do not have the stock of all the colors or the storage options that you require. Depending on your location, you might not be eligible for delivery and need to pick up the device from a store.
How Much Is the Apple iPhone 13 after Trade-In?
Apple trade-in is a very good way to get a discount on the price of your new iPhone 13. You have to answer a few questions about your existing smartphone to see how much it is worth. According to the Apple website, you can get anywhere between $40 to $650 for your trade-in which can significantly reduce the actual price you have to pay for a new iPhone.
How Does the Trade-In Process Work?
When you are opting for the trade-in option, you have to pay the full price of the new device first. Once Apple receives your old handset and evaluates the same for quality, the trade-in amount will be credited to your account.
You have to keep your trade-in device ready till you get delivery of the new iPhone. Apple sends a trade-in kit and email instructions that assist the user with data transfer, backup and steps to prepare the old device before you can ship it back.
The old device must be shipped within 14-days of receiving your trade-in kit to qualify for the deal. If everything checks out, you will receive credit for the trade-in. In case your device does not meet the quality requirements, Apple will recycle it for free.
Other Payment Offers
After the trade-in offer applies, if the amount of the trade-in is more than the price you have already paid, you will receive an Apple gift card for the remaining amount in your email.
Moreover, if you decide to pay for the new iPhone 13 with Apple Card, you get the chance to earn 3% daily cash back as well.
Apple’s iPhone 13 has been a popular choice for many users across the country because of all the useful features that it has. Irrespective of the model you choose, you will enjoy better battery life, a superior camera and an excellent display.
Depending on your priorities and budget, both iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini can be very good options.
