After last week’s big launch, loads of iPhone 13 Pro Max deals are still available to pre-order. There are plenty of excellent ways to save on this admittedly very pricey device. Trade-ins are looking particularly good at both Verizon and AT&T right now, with the former actually offering a free device for new customers switching over from another carrier. Apple’s introductory iPhone 13 Pro Max deals also include some very competitive trade-in options. Join us as we guide you through all the very best pre-order deals below.

iPhone 13 Pro Max:
1. This week’s best deals
Retailing at an introductory price of $1,099 means the latest iPhone 13 Pro Max is a significant investment for even the most flush Apple fanatic. That’s actually the same price as last year’s iPhone 12 Pro Max was at launch, although as you’d expect there are a number of beefy upgrades under the hood this time round to justify that price.
Of particular note is the inclusion of the latest Apple A15 Bionic chip – the most powerful mobile processor from the company and a CPU that Apple claims is 50% faster than the competition. Both the Pro and Pro Max also benefit from an upgraded 5-core GPU now, which joins a 120Hz screen, upgraded battery, and camera sensor improvements to round out the specs on one very, very powerful mobile device indeed.
Is it worth the money? It certainly won’t be for everyone, but the good news is there are several iPhone 13 Pro Max deals at launch to really help offset that cost. While a free device is very much off the cards at most retailers (unlike on the iPhone 13), if you have a slightly older device to trade in you could potentially be looking at saving upwards of $700, plus even more if you’re willing to switch carrier.
If you’d like to read a bit more about this device, we’ve included a mini-review and full specs breakdown for this device underneath this week’s best iPhone 13 Pro Max deals.

iPhone 13 Pro Max deals
Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max: save up to $1,000 with trade-in, plus $500 with a switch at Verizon
Verizon’s initial iPhone 13 Pro Max deals are even better than we originally predicted with a whopping $1,000 saving being available via trade-in for both new and existing customers. Switch over from another carrier and you’ll also score an additional $500 in account credit – effectively rendering your device free and giving you plenty of cash left over for plan payments too.
Total cost: $0 (w/ trade) | Monthly cost: $0 (24 mo)View Deal
Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max: save up to $1,000 with trade-in and new unlimited plan at AT&T
You’ll find a significant saving of up to $1,000 on the cards with AT&T’s initial batch of iPhone 13 Pro Max deals. While not enough to cover the entire cost of the device, this is still one very respectable saving that’s more or less in line with what we’ve come to expect from this carrier. Also available is a $200 off price cut on the new Apple Watch Series 7 when you purchase two devices.
Total cost: $399 | Monthly cost: $13.3 (30 mo)View Deal
Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max:
$999 $309 with eligible trade-in at Apple
Going unlocked? Apple’s offering a maximum trade-in saving of up to $790 on all iPhone 13 Pro Max deals today. This is actually the biggest saving we’ve ever seen via the official trade-in program so this one’s a great opportunity if you’ve got a relatively recent device to trade-in. Both the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro should fetch fairly high values here, but older devices are eligible for trade too.

Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max: $100 off pre-order bonus, plus $900 off with a trade-in
Walmart’s offering a $100 pre-order saving on all iPhone 13 Pro Max deals – regardless of whether you’re trading in or not. While trade-in rebates are also available via this retailer, this one’s quite possibly the cheapest option all around if you’re not eligible for a trade. $100 isn’t much, but it will cut down those monthly costs by a bit at least.View Deal
Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max: $200 gift card, plus free HomePod Mini with switch at Visible
Visible, an excellent prepaid carrier on the Verizon network, is offering a free HomePod Mini smart speaker and $200 online gift card for all new customers for its initial iPhone 13 Pro Max deals. While not the biggest saving on our list, this carrier offers unlimited 5G data plans for as little as $25 a month, so it’s a fantastic option if you’re looking to save on those bills in the long run.
Total cost: $1,099View Deal
Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max (T-Mobile):
$1,099.99 $999.99 with activation at Best Buy
You can save yourself a small but welcome $100 with Best Buy’s initial iPhone 13 Pro Max deals. As of writing, this saving is only available for T-Mobile carrier devices, so we’d recommend going via the main carrier sites if you’re interested in other networks.

OS: iOS 14 | Screen size: 6.1-inch Retina (60Hz)| Resolution: 2532 x 1170 | CPU: Apple A14 | Memory: N/A | Weight: 164g |Storage: 64 / 128 / 256GB | Battery: N/A | Rear camera: 12MP wide, 12MP ultrawide| Front camera: 12MP
The new iPhone 13 Pro Max represents the pinnacle of Apple design for 2021. On the outside, not much has changed since last year’s iPhone 12 Pro Max, but inside there’s a whole host of top-end tech to justify its eye-opening introductory price of $1,099.
Firstly, Apple’s latest A15 Bionic chip promises to be the companies most powerful mobile processor yet – with performance that outstrips the nearest rival by a whopping 50% according to Apple. An upgraded OLED panel also means the iPhone 13 Pro Max’s Super Retina XDR display is now capable of a 1000 Nits brightness and a rather smooth variable 10 to 120Hz refresh rate via the company’s new ProMotion technology.
Camera-wise, key lens and software improvements now enable a new ‘cinematic mode’ – essentially a super nifty suite of tools that enable easy depth filtering and Dolby Vision support for video capture. Oh, and there’s also a handy battery upgrade and a range of software improvements that Apple claim will boost battery life by an average of 2.5 hours over a day of usage.
Retailing at the same introductory price as last year’s iPhone 12 Pro Max makes the 13 Pro Max a real no-brainer if you’re looking for that super high-end iOS device. That said, even though Apple plans to discontinue the 12 Pro Max you may still be able to find them on shelves for quite some time now at cheaper prices. Both devices feature 5G capability and a design that’s strikingly similar, so it could be a good idea to investigate the older device if you’re looking to save a bit of cash.
