The iPhone 13 prices half, however for that purpose, it may be a foul time to improve
There are some blockbuster iPhone 13 deals out there right now that make owning this latest Apple flagship seriously tempting. Three Mobile currently offers this feature-rich device – which includes an upgraded processor, improved camera, and improved battery life – for half the usual price, meaning you can slip one in your pocket for just £31 a month.
This 50% off offer is now also available for the higher-end iPhone 13 Pro and larger Pro Max. The half-price discount only applies to the first six months of the contract, but that’s still a huge savings.
not to be surpassed O2 has also launched an offer that offers completely free calls, data and texts. That means you only pay £20.99 a month for the first six months of the contract to own this device, which is a bit of a bargain.
Both deals offer huge incentives to upgrade to the new iPhone 13 – but before you set out to buy one, be aware of what could be coming soon. There are rumors that Apple is preparing to release a new smartphone that will arrive feature-packed but at a much cheaper price. Apple is already offering fans the iPhone SE, starting from just £389, and it’s this phone that’s expected to get a big reboot in the spring.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who has a track record of getting Apple right, the new iPhone SE 3 could bring the latest 5G data speeds to this budget-friendly device that would allow owners to clock up at speeds in excess of 300Mbps access the Internet when away from their landline broadband.
It is also believed that the update will bring this phone with a faster processor and the front and rear cameras could be improved for better photography.
When Apple launched the flagship iPhone 13 in September, the US company beefed up the entry-level storage tucked under the shell with things that now start at 128GB by default. The current SE starts with a meager 64GB of onboard storage, so an increase in that storage would be very welcome as well.
Unfortunately, one thing that’s unlikely to change is the design, with most reports suggesting the SE3 will stick with its current looks. That means owners still get the chunky bezels at the top and bottom of the screen, and there’s no clever Face ID tech, as the screen is unlocked via the old-fashioned Touch ID fingerprint scanner.
If the rumors are true, Apple could unveil this new device at an event in March or April. Watch this space!
