Apple also announced it was increasing iPhone storage on its standard models.

The flagship iPhone will start at $999 and will start shipping on September 24. The 1TB storage option will be available on the iPhone 13 Pro for $1,499 and $1,599 on the larger iPhone 13 Pro Max.

The new iPhone has a series of new updates and features which include a narrower notch, new camera features which give users video versions of portrait mode and a higher-quality video recording option called ProRes. 

iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are available in four colours, including graphite, gold, silver, and sierra blue.
