Purported prices for all of the upcoming Apple iPhone 13 smartphones have been floating around social media and news sites in China for the last few days. According to an iPhone 13 price list, a 64 GB iPhone 13 mini will cost 5,499 yuan (US$851) while a 1 TB iPhone 13 Pro Max will be 14,099 yuan (US$2,182). Pro models with 256 GB seem to be off the table.

Apple iPhone 13 prices have been popping up frequently on Weibo and various Chinese news sites lately, with lists covering all 12 models that are expected to appear on shelves in September. A report published by MyDrivers features a table with all the China prices for the iPhone 13, which appears to have come from a source called DigitalChat (possibly related to noted leaker Digital Chat Station). These are the prices this particular source has offered up: 

iPhone 13 mini iPhone 13 iPhone 13 Pro iPhone 13 Pro Max
64 GB 5,499 yuan (US$851) 6,299 yuan (US975) - -
128 GB 5,999 yuan (US$928) 6,799 yuan (US$1,052) 8,499 yuan (US$1,315) 9,299 yuan (US$1,439)
256 GB 6,799 yuan (US$1,052) 7,599 yuan (US$1,176) - -
512 GB - - 10,499 yuan (US$1,625) 11,299 yuan (US$1,749)
1 TB - - 13,299 yuan (US$2,058) 14,099 yuan (US$2,182)

As mentioned above, those interested in an iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max will have to plump for either a 128 GB variant or go straight to a 512 GB version, with a 256 GB option not included. Storage amounts go right up to 1 TB for the Pro iPhones, which are also the variants that will sport 120 Hz OLED panels and offer 6 GB RAM while the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 are stuck with 4 GB memory (see image below for specs comparison).

Prices in China for the iPhone 13 smartphones, which should be powered by the upcoming A15 SoC, are expected to be higher than those in other key markets for Apple, such as the US. It has long been rumored that the iPhone 13 series would match the price points of the iPhone 12 devices; however, news of rising chip prices and costs may result in Apple upping the iPhone 13 price tag to cover these new production expenses.
