Tech insiders and gadget geeks all over the world are waiting in anticipation for the release of the so-called iPhone 13, which is expected to arrive sometime between September and October. Not only does the upcoming reveal mean a new model in Apple's flagship smartphone line, it also spells some exciting changes for other Apple devices. The AirPods 3, for example, may be released alongside the new iPhone, some tech insiders say. Meanwhile, experts are predicting a substantial price drop for the iPhone 12 series.

After the launch of the iPhone 12 in October 2020, the iPhone 11 series almost immediately saw a huge decrease in retail prices. Smartphones are ever-depreciating, so previous Apple models today always cost much less than they did at their initial release and it will come as no suprise if the iPhone 12 (almost a year old now) follows suit. Here's what tech insiders are estimating the price of the iPhone 12 will be after the iPhone 13 comes out.

The iPhone 13 series is expected to be priced similarly to the iPhone 12 series with the smallest model in the lineup (the iPhone 13 Mini) starting at U.S. $699 (roughly P34,922) while the flagship iPhone 13 model is likely to be priced at U.S. $799 (roughly P40,254). In the Philippines, the flagship iPhone 12 started at P49,990 upon initial release.

According to Tom's Guide, the iPhone 12 will most likely be priced at around U.S. $599 (roughly P30,177) once the iPhone 13 series is released—that means a U.S. $200 price drop from its original value.

When the iPhone 12 was released in 2020, the iPhone 11's starting price went from P47,990 to P37,990, with other models in the series following suit. So if history and tech insiders are to be believed, expect most (if not all) iPhone 12 models to be priced at least P10,000 off the original price once its successor arrives in stores. The expected price drop also means that many may opt to buy the iPhone 12 series in 2021, rather than pay full price for the iPhone 13.
