We are sure that you’re more than excited about the iPhone 13 lineup. However, if you have the previous-gen iPhone, there are some considerations to keep in mind. So, here’s if upgrading to an iPhone is worth it. And also, here’s how to trade in your iPhone 12 for a brand-new iPhone 13

Which One Should You Get? iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro?

Well, no matter which iPhone 13 you pick, know that you’ll get a highly comprehensive set of features. With that said, if money is no object, you’ll get quite a lot if you spend $200 extra and get an iPhone 13 Pro. 

More precisely, you'll get more capable photography and videography features, a more quality display (featuring a 120 Hz refresh rate), and a more quality build overall. Of course, if you don't care about those features, a "standard" iPhone 13 should meet all your needs.
