By Stephen Hurrell

Apple has confirmed the exact time customers can upgrade to the new iPhone 13.

The launch of the new iPhone 13, iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max took place via a live stream on Tuesday and pre orders will open for the new handsets on Friday 17 September.

Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed US prices but very little has been confirmed about UK prices and availability.

Apple has an upgrade program for customers that costs from £37.45 per month for a SIM-free upgrade every year for the latest iPhone. For those who are waiting for the new iPhone 13 then Apple has confirmed pre orders will open at 1pm on Friday.

The time of pre orders is the only confirmed time for UK customers at the time of writing and could be a major hint about when other retailers will open their own pre orders for the in-demand phone.

The iPhone 13 will also be available from:

The new iPhone 13 and iPhone Mini include new features such as the most advanced dual-camera system ever on iPhone, super-fast performance, longer battery life, a brighter Super Retina XDR display, double the entry-level storage at 128GB, and an industry-leading IP68 rating for water resistance.

Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing., says: “iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max make up our most pro iPhone lineup ever with the biggest advancement for our camera system, the best battery life ever in an iPhone, and the fastest performance of any smartphone, setting a new standard for iPhone and enabling incredible experiences never before possible.

“The new pro camera system offers even more pro photography capabilities like improved telephoto zoom, macro photography, Photographic Styles, Cinematic mode, as well as ProRes and Dolby Vision video. The Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion is our best display ever; it intelligently responds to the content on your screen, offers fantastic graphics performance, and is perfect for any viewing experience.”
