As with last year’s iPhone 12, serious photographers and videographers may end up opting for one of the pricier Pro models if they have the extra funds, though we should make clear that the non-Pro models also offer outstanding camera systems.

The best-priced iPhone 13 is the 5.4-inch Mini, which starts at $699, while the most expensive is the 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max, which starts at $1,099 and tops out at $1,599, based on storage amount.

If you’re in the market for a new iPhone, this Digital Trends article also offers some useful suggestions.

Alternatively, there are some great deals to be had with the iPhone 12, a handset that came out 11 months ago but still packs a hefty punch.
