Multiple iPhone 13 deals are available this week. Based on our iPhone 13 review, Apple's new phone is setting a new standard for mobiles. Fortunately, retailers and carriers alike are offering epic iPhone 13 deals right now. 

However, if you want to score a new handset it's best to act quick. The Apple Store is already struggling to cope with the demand for the latest iPhone. As a result, picking one up for the holiday season could prove to be a tricky task. 

In terms of sales, one of the first iPhone 13 deals comes from AT&T. The carrier is taking up to $1,000 off the iPhone 13 Pro with an eligible trade-in. You'll need to purchase your phone via a monthly installment plan and you'll also need to sign up for an unlimited data plan. However, this deal is open to both new and existing customers. We expect to see more iPhone 13 deals as we're now in peak holiday season. And if the new iPhone 13 isn't for you, we're now seeing some epic new iPhone 12 deals as well.
