It’s September and while for many that signals the end of summer, the annual phone launches of brands from Google to Apple gives an element of excitement to the month that will have you welcoming autumn with open arms.
One of the most eagerly anticipated tech drops of the year, Apple will release its iPhone 13 to pre-order on September 17 to become available on September 24 and die-hard fans will no doubt have already marked their calendars.
There will be four iterations of the new device – the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max – with an even more advanced camera system than ever before – Ultra Wide, Wide, and Telephoto cameras with Night mode and Cinematic mode on video. You can also expect extra attention paid to enhancing battery life and a flashy new A15 Bionic chip – the most advanced in a smartphone according to the brand.
Models will also have the best display yet with Super Retina XDR, a refresh rate of 120Hz and ProMotion for an easier and faster user experience and more responsive taps.
Clumsy users will also appreciate the tougher Ceramic Shield front cover set to withstand shocks and drops greater than previous models. And for those always running out of storage, the iPhone Pro Max has a new storage capacity of 1TB.
There are also new colourways; graphite, gold, silver, pink and the all-new sierra blue but these will vary depending on the model.
As always, these state-of-the-art features don’t come cheap (we’re talking from £949 RRP). Luckily some of the UK’s top networks have put together deals and bundles to make a purchase more enticing.
We’ve gathered the best deals so you can get your hands on the new models for less.
Apple is offering both the iPhone and iPhone 13 mini on a contract basis so you can pay per month instead of the full RRP all at once. The mini is available from £28.29 a month, while the standard iPhone model is £32.45 a month. When you trade in your old iPhone 8 and newer, you can also get £80 to £610 off. The devices come in pink, blue, midnight, starlight, red and with 128GB, 256GB and 512GB in storage.
