iPhone 13 Pre-Orders: When Will The New iPhone Be Available? | The Sun UK

There’s a brand-new iPhone on the way – and a lot of people are gearing up to pre-order it.

Nothing has been officially announced yet, but we all know which product is going to be the star of the show at the Apple 2021 event on Tuesday September 14.

Each year, Apple never fails to dazzle with its latest addition to the iPhone line.

The livestream from Apple’s California headquarters (10am local time, 6pm GMT) will also likely unveil a range of major new devices, including the Apple Watch Series 7, the Airpods 3 and, perhaps, a new 2021 iPad.

And if previous years are anything to go by, once the iPhone 13 is announced, it won’t be long until it’s available to pre-order – along with its (likely) siblings the iPhone 13 Mini, the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

If we’re to take a guess: the iPhone 12 is soon going to get a whole lot more affordable too.

When will the iPhone 13 be available for pre-order?

We’re confident that iPhone 13 pre-orders will open on Friday September 17.

In previous years, new Apple handsets have been available on the Friday that immediately follows the event that happens during that week – so it stands to reason the same will happen after the launch event on September 14.

How much will the iPhone 13 cost?

An arm and a leg, you’re probably thinking – Apple flagships, after all, are always priced at the top end of the spectrum.

Online sources are saying it’s unlikely new handset prices will deviate that much from that of the iPhone 12 range. Let’s take a look at price of the 13's predecessor.


  • iPhone 12: £849 – now £729 on Amazon
  • iPhone 12 Mini: £699 – now £579 on Amazon
  • iPhone 12 Pro: £999 – now £949 on Amazon
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max: £1,099 – now £1,050 on Amazon


  • iPhone 12: $799 – buy from Apple Store
  • iPhone 12 Mini: $699 – buy from Apple Store
  • iPhone 12 Pro: $999 – buy from Apple Store
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max: $1,099 – buy from Apple Store

If you’re not fussed about flagships and you’re more bargain-minded, we’d suggest this is a great moment to snap up a handset from the iPhone 12 range.

The iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max will almost definitely become way more affordable once they all become no longer top-of-the-line.

Who will stock the iPhone 13?

No phone providers or networks have yet confirmed they will be offering plans for the iPhone 13 range.

But let’s face it: this is an iPhone. That means nearly every last retailer will be offering pay-monthly plans, with a smaller number of stores stocking the SIM-free handset.

Here’s here you can expect to offer contracts for the iPhone 13:

  • Carphone Warehouse
  • EE
  • Fonehouse
  • Mobiles.co.uk
  • O2
  • Three
  • Vodafone
  • Virgin Media

How long does it take for iPhone 13 pre-orders to arrive?

If you order it as soon as it’s available to pre-order, you should expect your iPhone 13 to arrive after around a fortnight.

Since we’re guessing pre-orders will go live on Friday September 17, it stands to reason (given previous iPhone releases) that the 13 will go on general sale a week later.

That’s Friday September 24, and we imagine deliveries will take another week or so.

We expect prices on the iPhone 13’s predecessor to drop – be sure to read our iPhone 12 Black Friday deals article as November draws nearer.
