The latest lineup of iPhone 13 models have the most value we’ve ever seen from the iPhone. With a sleek design, beautiful screens and fantastic cameras, there’s almost nothing to like about Apple’s latest smartphones† The only downside to the latest iPhone is the price, but the good news for you is that there are other iOS devices that can help you save yourself some money. If you’re looking for the cheapest iPhone to play Apple Arcade games or not to be the odd one out with green texts, this is the guide for you.
The iPhone SE is the absolute cheapest iPhone you can buy new for $429. Despite an old design that has been around since the iPhone 6, this device features Apple’s latest A15 Bionic chip. That means this phone is blazing fast, can play any Apple Arcade game with ease, and will connect to 5G networks. The only things holding back the cheapest iPhone are its small 4.7-inch screen, the single 12MP wide-angle camera and it doesn’t feature MagSafe, although you can still charge this device wirelessly.
iPhone 13 Mini
If you want the latest and greatest from Apple’s latest iPhone 13, just buy the mini version for $599. The iPhone 13 Mini is slightly smaller than Apple’s other devices with only a 5.4-inch screen, but if you have smaller hands a more compact device may be useful. It still packs Apple’s latest A15 Bionic chip, 5GB, plus a 12MP wide and 12MP ultra-wide camera for the best iPhone graphics.
The iPhone 12 may have last year’s A14 Bionic chip, but this phone processor still offers plenty of power. In fact, almost everything about this $599 phone is almost as good as the latest model, including the 6.1-inch Liquid Retina HD display, plus the 12MP wide and ultra-wide cameras. You also still get the modern iPhone comforts of 5G connectivity and MagSafe.
If you haven’t jumped on the 5G train yet, the iPhone 11 might be a great handset for you. For $499 you get a phone with a still very capable A13 Bionic processor and a great looking 6.1-inch Liquid Retina HD display. You also get two 12MP wide and ultra-wide cameras that can shoot 4K 60fps video. The round design may be a bit older, but it’s easier to hold on to for some who dislike the sleeker design of the latest iPhones.
