One of the best things about new Apple phones is how quickly prices on older models start to fall shortly after. If you’ve been waiting for a good deal to drop on the iPhone 13 lineup, you might want to head on over to Apple’s online store because Apple’s just added a bunch of discounted refurbished iPhone 13 devices.
In case you’re unfamiliar with what buying refurbished entails — basically, Apple thoroughly cleans, tests, and repackages each preowned product. It also throws in a one-year warranty for extra peace of mind, making these good options for bargain hunters.
The best deals are available on the 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max, which Apple no longer sells in new condition. The refurbished base iPhone 13 Pro model starts at $759 as opposed to $999, the price it used to sell for in new condition. However, as it’s currently out of stock, you can buy the 256GB model instead for $849, which is still $250 less than its original price sold new. At that price, the iPhone 13 Pro is also only $50 more than the regular iPhone 14.
Meanwhile, the refurbished iPhone 13 Pro Max starts at $849 as opposed to $1,099, which the phone sold for when it first launched. The base model is also currently out of stock, but you can buy the 512GB model for $1,099 instead of $1,399, the price it originally sold for in new condition.
Like the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, these premium models share support for variable refresh rates of up to 120Hz. However, they lack their faster successor’s 48MP main camera and the new Dynamic Island, which replaced the notch.

If you prefer something smaller and cheaper, Apple’s also selling the green 6.1-inch iPhone 13 starting at $619, which is $80 cheaper than buying it new. It’s also $180 less than the iPhone 14, which shares almost all of the same specs as its predecessor but with minor changes, like small camera updates.
