Triple cameras, lots of power and a big, bright display make the iPhone 13 Pro a brilliant buy. Read on for a closer look at what it's got to offer.
iPhone 13 Pro at a glance
The iPhone 13 Pro, Apple’s higher-end 2021 handset, looks much the same as the regular iPhone 13. But there’s a little more going on under the hood.
With better cameras, a bigger battery, and more storage if you need it, the iPhone 13 Pro is ideal for business and pro use – or just for anyone who wants a bit more oomph in their phone.
You can also spring for an iPhone 13 Pro Max, which features the same specs on a larger sized phone (with a bigger battery to power it too).
iPhone 13 Pro availability and price
The iPhone 13 Pro is out now, priced at £949 at release.
Of course, you can find contract plans from a wide range of networks if you’d rather not pay that outright.
iPhone 13 Pro design
You’ll find the iPhone 13 Pro just as good-looking as its predecessors, with a very similar design. Its 6.1-inch display is encased in a stainless steel and glass body, in a classic iPhone style with flat edges.
The stunning 1170 x 2532 resolution screen includes Ceramic Shield technology for added strength too.
You can pick up the iPhone 13 Pro in four colours:
- Sierra Blue
iPhone 13 Pro camera
The Pro model has the best camera on this set of iPhones, matched by the Pro Max version.
Look on the back and you’ll see three lenses, each 12MP: one wide, one ultra wide, and one 7mm telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom.
All together it offers next-level performance in low light, and it’s more than capable of macro photography. Plus, it can record in Dolby Vision in 4K at up to 60fps.

What’s the difference between the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro?
You’d be forgiven for thinking the iPhone 13 Pro wasn’t much of an upgrade from the previous year’s equivalent. They have an identical look and size, after all.
But the 13 Pro represents a firm step forward. Compared to the iPhone 12 Pro, you can enjoy:
- Better cameras, with Cinematic Mode too
- Upgraded processors, for faster loading and more efficient usage
- A much heftier battery, meaning up to two hours extra charge
- Double the maximum storage, at 1TB
- A higher price, unfortunately, due to being a newer model
Can I get the iPhone 13 Pro with no upfront cost?
Yes you can. Most major networks offer contracts on the iPhone 13 Pro with nothing to pay upfront.

Can I get the iPhone 13 Pro with unlimited data?
Absolutely. A good number of major networks offer unlimited data contracts on phones, and the iPhone 13 Pro is no exception. Bear in mind they won’t be cheap – but they’re still a good choice if you’re a heavy user.
You can find all the available unlimited data deals here, by setting the monthly data allowance filter to unlimited.
What’s the cheapest way to get the iPhone 13 Pro?
The cheapest way to get your hands on an iPhone 13 Pro is to buy a handset outright, and pick up a SIM-only deal. That’s a lot to pay in one go though.
To find a good value contract plan, it’s best to compare your options using our tool on this page. Sort the deals by cost, and we’ll show you the cheapest ones right at the top.
You’ll likely find more affordable plans from budget networks and resellers – or on refurbished handsets.
Can I get the iPhone 13 Pro with poor credit?
It may be tough. All major mobile networks require credit checks on mobile contracts, and they tend to be pretty stringent for expensive flagships like the iPhone 13 Pro.
Buying outright, with no contract, is the only real failsafe way to get the iPhone 13 Pro if you fail a network’s credit check.
You may have better luck on a less costly phone, or through giffgaff, which offers contracts through third-party company Klarna.
