As previously announced, Apple’s new range of flagship iPhones can be pre-ordered today through the company’s online store.
The new phones are the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Prices range from $699 to $1,599, with storage configurations ranging from 128GB to 1TB across the board.
The original shipping date for these phones was September 24, but unsurprisingly, the dates have shifted depending on which phone you’re trying to buy.
As we looked at the store in the US while writing this article, most iPhone 13 and 13 mini configurations are still listed as shipping on September 24, but some specific color and storage combinations don’t ship until October 12.
Meanwhile, all versions of the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max currently show a shipping window between October 8 and 25.
The new phones come in the same screen sizes as last year: 5.4 inches (iPhone 13 mini), 6.1 inches (iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro) and 6.7 inches (iPhone 13 Pro Max). Each features Apple’s new A15 chip, which has improved CPU, GPU and NPU performance compared to last year’s A14.
They also include larger batteries, support for MagSafe accessories, and all the other perks we’ve seen in recent flagship iPhones. But most of the year-over-year improvements are in the cameras. Last year’s Max-exclusive large sensor has come to the iPhone 13, 13 mini and 13 Pro. And the three-camera system in the 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max has been overhauled in several notable ways.
All in all, it appears to be a smaller update than last year’s iPhone 12 series, which added MagSafe, 5G, and more. All things considered, the updates with the iPhone 13 series resemble the “S” updates Apple made every two years, usually in between major changes.
As always, we will be publishing our review of the iPhone 13 family in the coming days.
