Apple users wanting a discount on the new iPhone 13 range can get up to $1120 off the retail price by trading in their current phone, the tech giant has revealed.

The new iPhone 13 range – which also includes the mini, Pro and Pro Max – can be pre-ordered now and bought on Friday.

The iPhone 13 mini starts at $1199 and the iPhone 13 at $1349, while the iPhone 13 Pro will cost you at least $1699 and the 13 Pro Max $1849.

However, if you own an iPhone 12 Pro Max – the top-of-the-line from the previous range – you can get up to $1120 off the new model while the iPhone 12 Pro can fetch up to $950 and the iPhone 12 $745.

Even an iPhone 7 plus, which is five years old, can knock up to $155 off the price of the iPhone 13.

The way it works, is Apple give customers a quote for what their current device is worth online (or in a store pending state restrictions).

If their trade‑in is eligible for credit, customers can put that towards a new iPhone or any other Apple product.

You can also return your trade-in using a prepaid trade‑in kit, by dropping it at a post office, arranging a courier pick-up or trading it in at an Apple Store.

Apple can also instruct customers on how to backup and wipe your data before they trade in their existing phone.

The two standout improvements to the iPhone 13 are the camera and battery life, as well as the new A15 Bionic chip – the fastest chip in any smartphone.

A common criticism of iPhones is that their batteries don’t last long enough for the modern user, but the iPhone 13 Mini features a battery 9 per cent larger than the iPhone 12, with a 15.1 per cent increase on the battery size of the iPhone 13.

Apple claims the regular iPhone 13 should last for 2.5 hours longer than the iPhone 12, while the Mini will last an extra 1.5 hours.

The battery boost is partly fuelled by an enhanced refreshing mechanism that analyses how you are using the iPhone and drops the refresh rate when you’re idling on one page or app.

The iPhone 13 can display at 120 frames per second (fps) but will drop down to 10fps when you’re idle, like a car’s engine switching off at traffic lights.

The camera is arguably the biggest upgrade, with new sensors and lenses for all three rear cameras which are powered by a new image signal processor (ISP) within A15 Bionic for improved noise reduction and tone mapping.

Macro is a new function which allows the camera to automatically adjust when the phone gets really close to a subject, as 2cm away, to photograph objects like bugs, plants and food.

Cinematic Mode for videos should also be popular, which provides a blur effect around a subject. The feature can even recognise when a subject has looked away and it will automatically shift focus to whatever the subject looking at.
