Now that the trusty iPhone 13 family has been superseded by the hot new iPhone 14, those looking for a bargain on last year's model are in luck. On the same day that the iPhone 14 was announced, the remaining iPhone 13 handsets that weren't discontinued received a sizeable discount (well, sizeable by Apple's standards).

Now starting at $1,049 for the 128GB iPhone 13 mini

When the iPhone 14 was released this year, it came with a slight price hike for every model (compared to last year) while the iPhone 13 got even cheaper. Considering the standard iPhone 14 is such a small upgrade to the iPhone 13, there are plenty of people still interested in scoring a deal on last year's flagship iPhone 13 (or iPhone 13 mini). 

The new RRP for Apple iPhone 13 starts at $1,049 for the iPhone 13 mini and $1,229 for the iPhone 13. Here's the complete list of iPhone 13 pricing in Australia since the changes took effect.

The iPhone 13 might be a little harder to find these days. Amazon, for example, shows limited stock for most models at the time of writing, but other Australian retailers such as The Good Guys and JB HI-FI seem to have ample stock of both the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. 

Alternatively, if you want to save even more off the iPhone 13 range, we'd recommend checking out what refurbished iPhone deals are on offer.

Looking for a deal on the standard iPhone 13? It's the same story as the 13 mini. All three storage variants of the iPhone 13 are still available on a plan through Telstra, Optus and Vodafone. Take a look at the tables below for a small sample of available plans from each provider.

When did the iPhone 13 release in Australia?

The iPhone 13 range launched on the 24th of September 2021

Apple is known for having quite a consistent product release schedule, but a certain global pandemic really threw a spanner in the works in 2020. 

From 2012’s iPhone 5 onwards, each major hardware update (with the exception of a few) was announced in early-to-mid September, with a release date around 10 days later.

Due to supply chain disruptions, the iPhone 12 lineup was delayed by about a month. It wasn’t until October 13 that it was announced, with the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro available for purchase a week later. Even then, those waiting to get their hands on the Mini or Pro Max models still had to wait a whole month after the announcement.

Thankfully things eventually returned to normal with the iPhone 13. 

The iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max launched in Australia on September 24 2021, while preorders for the iPhone 14 actually opened up earlier than usual, in early September 2022.

Is it worth choosing the iPhone 14 over iPhone 13?

The iPhone 14 isn't a huge upgrade from the iPhone 13.

For a long time now, the big smartphone brands have been known for releasing incremental upgrades every year. But that might be more accurate than ever with the iPhone 14 when compared with the iPhone 13. In fact, the iPhone 14 is the first flagship iPhone that's ever been lumped with last year's processor. This year, only iPhone 14 Pro users get the new A16 Bionic Processor, while iPhone 14 users get the same A15 found in the iPhone 13. 

The iPhone 14 offers a handful of neat perks, such as Crash Detection (which we hope you'll never need), a few camera improvements and a slightly longer battery life, otherwise, it's more or less the same smartphone.  

It's a more compelling upgrade if you're on an iPhone 11 looking to upgrade to iPhone 14 but this year, most of the significant upgrades are exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro range
