The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini come in sixIcolors. These include pink, blue, midnight (black), starlight (aluminum white/silver), red and green.

Starlight, which takes the place of aluminum, and midnight, which takes the place of black, will likely be two of the most popular colors when the iPhone 13 launches on September 24. These are two neutral colors that tend to appeal to large swaths of phone buyers.

Blue is returning from the iPhone 12 line, as well as red. The red on the iPhone 13 seems to be a much darker and deeper shade, as last year's unit had more pinkish hues. From images, it seems that the blue unit looks very similar to last year's iPhone 12. 

Now the iPhone 13 also comes in green. Green was available on the iPhone 12, but didn't launch on the iPhone 13. Apple added the color during the Apple Event on March 8, 2022.

The iPhone 13 features a double flat-edge design in an aluminum frame. Both the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini will have a Ceramic Shield on the front for added scratch resistance. Both also have IP68 water resistance, a redesigned camera layout and a notch for Face ID sensors.

Overall, the design is similar to the iPhone 12, with some minor tweaks.

The iPhone 13 Pro colors and iPhone 13 Pro Max colors include graphite, gold, silver, and sierra blue. Graphite is essentially a take on space grey whereas Apple is touting sierra blue to be something really special. According to a press release by Apple, sierra blue is created by using "multiple layers of nanometer-scale metallic ceramics applied across the surface for a stunning and durable finish."

The iPhone 13 Pro line also use surgical-grade stainless steel that's "resistant to abrasion and corrosion" with a textured matte glass back. Like the iPhone 12, the Pro line is also using Ceramic Shield to protect from scratches, a smaller notch for the TrueDepth and Face ID sensors, and the rear cameras have a stainless steel trim. The pro line features an IP68 water resistance rating.

With the release of every iPhone, some new colors stay while others go. If your favorite color is not included with the iPhone 13, at least Apple will release a large number of cases to customize your phone. Colors range from deep greens to bright oranges.
