The regular version of the iPhone 13 series. Its other siblings are the iPhone 13 mini, the iPhone 13 Pro, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max. With its identifying feature being the updated diagonal camera arrangement, the iPhone 13 series keeps the same squared-off edges as the previous generation iPhone 12.
Featuring higher storage capacities, an updated A15 Bionic processor, and sensor-shift camera technology, the iPhone 13 starts at 128 GB and is available in Midnight, Starlight, (Product) Red, Blue, and Pink.
The iPhone 13 starts at $799 and can be identified by model numbers A2482, A2631, A2634, A2635, and A2633 depending on region.

The iPhone 13 features a 6.1 in (diagonal) flat glass screen, thin black bezels, and a notch at the top of the screen to accommodate a speaker and selfie camera. The back cover is glass and the edge frame is made from flat anodized aluminum.
Volume controls and the SIM tray can be found on the left edge while the power button is situated on the right. A rectangular camera "bump" containing two diagonally-aligned cameras protrudes slightly from the back case. This model has no home button.
The iPhone 13 can be differentiated from the iPhone 12 smaller screen notch and diagonally oriented cameras (relative to the vertically aligned cameras on the 12).
