How much does the iPhone 13 cost in Australia?

Pricewise, don't expect any big surprises from Apple when it comes the iPhone 13. The company's latest lineup isn't radically more pricey than previous rosters, but it's still expensive.

Aside from the more budget-friendly iPhone SE, Tim Cook and co. are all about premium devices with a premium price tag to match. Still, this time around, the 64GB storage variant on the base iPhone 13 and 13 Mini has been scrapped.

The cheapest iPhone 13 available comes with a much more generous 128GB.

Here’s a breakdown of what the iPhone 13 lineup’s price looks like in Australia.

Model
128GB
256GB

iPhone 13 mini$1,199$1,369$1,719N/A
iPhone 13$1,349$1,519$1,869N/A
iPhone 13 Pro$1,699$1,869$2,219$2,569
iPhone 13 Pro Max$1,849$2,019$2,369$2,719

The iPhone 13 is available in all the usual locations – Telstra, Optus and Vodafone for those who want it on a plan, Apple, JB Hi-Fi, Kogan, The Good Guys and more for those who want it outright.

For those who prefer to pay off their iPhone 13 on a plan, here are the most popular deals with each provider right now on a 36-month repayment plan.

iPhone 13 Australia release date

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

From 2012’s iPhone 5 onwards, each major hardware update (with the exception of a few) were 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 have mostly returned to normal in 2021. Preorders for the iPhone 13 kicked off on Friday as per usual and arrived in the people’s waiting hands the following week.

The iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max launched in Australia on September 24, 2021.

iPhone 13 review

The iPhone 13 isn’t groundbreaking, but its incremental upgrades have only increased its lead as the best phone in its class.

Is it worth waiting for the iPhone 14?

Assuming previous years are anything to go by, the iPhone 14 isn't likely to be announced until around September, 2022.

If you're in no rush to upgrade, it might be worth waiting to see what Apple's next flagship offers in terms of improvements. If you aren't sold, you'll likely be able to find a discounted or refurbished iPhone 13 without too much trouble.

On the other hand, if you need a new phone sooner rather than later, waiting might not be the best choice. Carriers tend to discontinue plans for older iPhones as new ones get announced by Apple. If you're looking to buy outright, that's so much an issue. However, if you want to get an iPhone 13 on a post-paid plan, you'll want to do it before the iPhone 14 gets announced.
