The iPhone 13 has been announced this Tuesday and the pre-orders are about to kick off. So, how do you pre-order the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, or iPhone 13 Pro Max as quickly and painlessly as possible? Are there any trade-in options for new and existing customers? Let’s explore!
When to pre-order iPhone 13? When does iPhone 13 ship?

How to get the iPhone 13 as fast as possible?
Look, it stands to reason that you are probably not the first person who wants to buy a brand-new iPhone 13. Therefore, it’s probably a good idea to try and be the first one who gets their foot through the door when it comes to pre-ordering. That’d maximise your chances to get one of the first iPhone 13 units in your hands.
So, how do we do that? Here are a few simple steps to follow:
Know when the pre-orders start
- PDT – 5 AM
- MDT – 6 AM
- CDT – 7 AM
- EDT – 8 AM
So yeah, stock up on coffee and load up those Ted Lasso episodes, because you’re in for an early morning. Or a long night! For some areas, iPhone 13, 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and Pro Max will become available to purchase literally before sunrise. But hey… a person needs their new iPhone, right?
Use the Apple Store app
Keep your favorite stores and carrier open in another tab
No need to sit there refreshing the Apple website like you’re crazy. Refresh all of the stores like a madman!
Besides, it’s not a good bet that Apple would have the best deal. Best Buy, AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile — these are all running trade-in offers for the iPhone 13. You’ll be able to nab a deal whenever one of them goes online with the pre-orders, so shoot away.
This is the first time we’ve seen such deep discounts for new iPhone models in recent memory. Make sure you check out the T-Mobile “Forever Upgrade” offer – that seems an interesting way of always having a new device.
Where can I buy the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro?
Over at AT&T, you can get up to $700 off on the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 or up to $1000 on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max with eligible trade-in. Even if you have a good condition iPhone 11, it’ll still net you $1000 through AT&T’s promo offer, and that’s crazy!
At Verizon, an eligible trade-in can net you a free iPhone 13 — again for new customers or existing customers who sign an unlimited contract and choose to pay off the iPhone 13 with an installment plan. Your discount will be applied via bill credits, so the iPhone 13 will technically cost you $0.
This essentially means the iPhone 13 Pro becomes free, the iPhone 13 Pro Max goes down to $99. Of course, again, you will most probably need to sign up for an unlimited plan here.
