The iPhone 13 has been on the horizon for a while, but now we have a fixed date for ordering, the release date (24 September), and the price (starting at £679), we can finally get excited about having our hands on one.

      What we know so far about the iPhone 13

      09:30 , Sophie Gallagher

      The iPhone 13 was only unveiled a few days ago on 14 September at Apple’s latest event – although obviously we’ve known a new iPhone was on the horizon for some time.

      The iPhone 13 updates the latest iPhone 12 bringing a new camera system and Apple’s latest A15 chip. The brand claims it will be up to 50 per cent faster than other phones on the market.

      There will be four new iPhones including a 13 mini, 13 pro and 13 pro max, with all featuring larger batteries to give you more time away from your charger.


      Apple has also decided to have a more eco-conscious approach with this phone, with the antenna bands made from upcycled plastic water bottles, and the rare earth metals used internally made from recycled materials.

      You can read more about everything we know here.

      So have your wallets on standby and let’s begin.
