As previously announced, Apple’s new flagship line of iPhones is available for pre-order today through the company’s online store.
The new phones include 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 line.
The originally set shipping date for these phones was September 24, but unsurprisingly, the dates have been pushed back, depending on the phone you’re trying to buy.
When we look at the US store as we were writing this article, most iPhone 13 and 13 mini configurations are still showing as shipping on September 24, but some specific color and storage combinations will 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 October 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 bigger batteries, MagSafe accessory mount, and all the other perks we’ve seen from the latest flagship iPhones. But most of the year-over-year improvements are in the cameras. Last year’s Max-exclusive large sensor made its way to the iPhone 13, 13 mini, and 13 Pro. And the triple-camera system on 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 lineup, which added MagSafe, 5G, and more. Taken in total, the updates to the iPhone 13 lineup feel similar to the “S” updates that Apple used to do every two years or so, usually between bigger changes.
As always, we’ll post our review of the iPhone 13 family in the coming days.
