Under this deal, the iPhone 13 Pro costs $0, the iPhone 13 mini costs $0, the iPhone 13 Pro Max costs $99, and the iPhone 13 costs $99. You can also get $200 off the Apple Watch Series 7 when purchasing two at once.

At Verizon, current and new customers can get up to $800 off the iPhone 13 lineup with select trade in offers and on select unlimited plans. If you're switching to Verizon, you can get up to $500 to help cover the cost of switching, for a total of up to $1,300 off new models.

If you purchase an iPhone 13 on a Verizon device payment plan, you can get up to $250 off select iPads or $150 off select Apple Watches. Apple Music is also included in the Get More Unlimited Plan, while all other plans have six months of Apple Music at no cost.

T-Mobile/Sprint

Although T-Mobile hasn't officially shared details about its upcoming iPhone 13 offers, Mark Gurman tweeted about one deal coming to the carrier when iPhone 13 orders open. You'll be able to get up to $1,290 total credit when trading in an iPhone 12 Pro Max, which you can put towards a new iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro model.

Apple Trade-In

With the launch of the iPhone 13, Apple has also made iPhone 12 family devices eligible for trade in on its Apple Trade In web page.

You can get up to $790 for iPhone 12 Pro Max, up to $640 for iPhone 12 Pro, up to $530 for iPhone 12, and up to $400 for iPhone 12 mini.

I hate the teade-in deals where you have to mail the phone to be "evaluated". Anything can go wrong, and they can just lie

Last year AT&T scammed my family out of $1000 after we traded in a perfect condition iPhone 8 Plus and they made up 3 different excuses and gave us $25 instead of what was promised with no recourse. Even with proof the phone was perfect (took videos before sending) and hours on the phone. And we weren’t the only ones, AT&T forums are packed with people like me complaining about the same thing. Maybe it’ll go class action. Save yourself the headaches and never, ever do one of these trade ins with AT&T - just don’t do business with them at all.

The T-Mobile deal where you get $500 in bill credits requires you to switch to one of their new Magenta Max plans, which would be a significantly ****** deal for long time customers. Right now I pay $120/mo for four lines with unlimited everything including tethering. No thanks! I'll just buy it outright from Apple.

Just just giggles and grins, I looked closely at the T-Mobile deal. The requirement to switch to Magenta Max would increase my monthly bill $30 a month. And to accept the $500 T-Mobile credit, you're commiting to 30 months of Magenta Max....so that's a $900 cost to me for what amounts to a $500 credit.

No thanks!

I was going to take the T-Mobile deal but I see in the fine print that you have to switch to their new plans.

Yup. It’s a scam. They have been trying everything lately to get people on these Magenta Max plans. The Max part being max benefit and price to them. Not the “amazing” deal that the tweet in this story implied.
