The iPhone 13 Cyber Monday deals are here, but they're fading fast. Besides the fact that deals are disappearing, it's best to buy now before stock starts to dry up, as the iPhone 13 is proving to be as popular as ever. Fortunately we've got lots of options for you to save money.

The iPhone 13 delivers great cameras, improved battery life and stellar displays, plus the best performance around from its A15 Bionic chip. But you'll need to move fast to grab one of these iPhone 13 deals, as high demand and relatively short supply means these phone deals can go in and out of stock very fast, much like the other Cyber Monday deals that are live now.  

Take a look at the host of iPhone 13 Cyber Monday deals we've assembled below. And we'd buy now as some models (especially the Pros) are delayed well into December and beyond due to high demand.

iPhone 13 Cyber Monday — best accessories

To go along with your new iPhone, we recommend some other essentials, especially a case. Luckily, we have several options for you.

Of course, there's more to getting the most out of your phone. A case can help keep it safe and make it look nice, but there are some other of the best iPhone 13 accessories we think you should check out to enhance your experience.

iPhone 13 Cyber Monday deals — what to expect

The iPhone 13 is one of the best phones you can buy. Naturally, it comes with a high price tag. The base iPhone 13 costs $799, whereas the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max cost $999 and $1,099, respectively. Meanwhile, the iPhone 13 mini is the smallest and least-expensive model in the lineup coming in at $699. 

As far as deals are concerned, practically every major carrier is currently offering free iPhone 13 deals. These freebie deals are generally reserved for the holidays. (Last year, we saw dozens of iPhone 12 freebie discounts in November). However, this year carriers have come out strong and aggressive. 

That means we likely won't see "cheaper" deals later this month. Instead, iPhone 13 Cyber Monday deals may offer better incentives. For instance, a carrier like Verizon could offer a higher trade-in credit than its current $800 max. Alternatively, carriers and retailers could offer iPhone 13 buy one, get one free (BOGO) deals. 

Expect all major carriers to offer the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, and iPhone 13 Pro for $0 after trade-in and with the opening of a new unlimited line. The pricier iPhone 13 Pro Max will likely drop to $99 with the same stipulations. 

One thing to keep in mind is that retailers and manufacturers are experiencing chip shortages. Retailers like Verizon and Apple are reporting backorders right now. So our advice is to shop early and secure the best deals as soon as you can. That said, we've lined up some of the best deals you can get right now. 

Will the Apple Store have iPhone 13 Cyber Monday deals?

The Apple Store traditionally offers its annual Cyber Monday sale online and in-store. Last year, Apple offered up to $150 Apple gift card with select purchases. Eligible devices included devices like the Apple Watch 3 and AirPods. However, the iPhone 12 (the current-gen phone last November) wasn't eligible for the discount. 

Sure enough, when Apple announced its offers this year (which are available from Cyber Monday), the iPhone 13 series isn't included. The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini are included this year however, as well as several other products.

Should I buy an iPhone 13 on Cyber Monday?

Definitely! Unless you wait until next year when the iPhone 14 comes out, this is the best time of year to get a great deal on an iPhone 13. And with supply issues and delays, you'll want to get yours before the carriers and stores run out of stock.

What Cyber Monday iPhone 13 deals can I get right now?

You basically have your pick of deals from the major carriers and even some of the prepaid ones. Many of the deals require signing up for an unlimited plan, and others also require a new line or account. This can leave current customers out in the cold, but the good news is that some carriers like Verizon also offer incentives to switch, like giving you money to buy out of your previous agreement.
