Start Saving: Here's How Much the iPhone 13 Is Likely to Cost
Here's what tech insiders are saying.

We're months away from the official release of the iPhone 13, the highly anticipated follow up to Apple's iPhone 12 series. The iPhone 8, XS, and 11 were released in September of 2017, 2018, and 2019, respectively, while the 12 was unveiled in October, so the latest model is expected to drop around the same time this year. As per usual, the tech giant has been mostly silent about their upcoming smartphone series, but that hasn't stopped gadget experts all over the Internet from speculating about what to expect. Those of you who are planning on buying it probably have one question on your minds: How much is the iPhone 13 going to cost? No official Philippine or international prices have been revealed just yet, but here's what the tech insiders are saying.

How much is the iPhone 13 likely going to cost?

The iPhone 13 series will likely include four models (a.k.a. four different price ranges).

Leading tech authorities like TechRadar and Marques Brownlee have noted that like the iPhone 12, the iPhone 13 series will include four phones, following the blueprint set by the former: the iPhone 13 Mini, the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Pro, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The size of each model is expected to be similar to those in the 12 series as well. That means you can choose between four different models and consequently, four different price ranges depending on your budget and personal preferences.

Note that MacRumors has pointed out the possibility that the new smartphone series may also be dubbed the iPhone 12s, though iPhone 13 seeems to be the more popular label across the Internet.

Pricing may be similar to the iPhone 12 series.

Tom’s Guide and TechRadar have noted that the iPhone 13 lineup will likely be priced similarly to the 12 series—the latter even shared that the 13's prices may be exactly the same as the 12's. The iPhone 12 Mini, the smallest and most affordable of the set, had a starting price of U.S. $699 (roughly P34,922), though the starting price in the Philippines was at P43,990. Meanwhile, the iPhone 12 started at P49,990, the 12 Pro at P62,990, and the 12 Pro Max at P68,990. Keep in mind the starting prices for each model only refer to the lowest memory capacity of each (64 GB for the 12 Mini and 12, 128 GB for the 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max).

Once the iPhone 13 series is released later this year, expect the prices of the iPhone 12 (and other previous models) to drop. Smartphones always depreciate in value, so you'll want to strategize when you buy the iPhone 13 as it will likely drop in price just months or a year after its original release. For now, we can't wait for Apple to officially unveil the new series' specs, features, and designs.
