What’s in the Box with the New iPhone 13?

In September of 2021, Apple announced and released the iPhone 13 after months of swirling rumors, leaks, speculation and buzz. The previous year, many iPhone fanatics were surprised to see the company make the decision to ship the phone without a charger, let alone any other accessories like iPhone earbuds that previous generations of the phone came with automatically.

As a result of that surprise, many have been left wondering what is included in the box with the iPhone 13.

That’s what we are here to reveal.

What Comes in the iPhone 13 Box?

To the chagrin of many, Apple has once again decided not to include a charger (nor any other accessories) in the box with the latest generation of iPhone.

All that comes in the box with the phone is:

  • USB-C to lightning cable
  • Sim ejector tool
  • Documentation
  • Apple sticker

While it is good to hear that iPhone 13 owners won’t have to purchase a new USB-C to lightning cable (unless they want a backup, a cable in more than one location or a cable of higher quality), it does mean that they will need to pick up a variety of accessories that are not included in the box such as:

  • Headphones

While Apple claims that its decision not to include a charger (or virtually anything else) in the box is rooted purely in the altruistic desire to reduce package waste and minimize the company’s environmental impact, the prospect of additional profits certainly factored into the determination.

Even though many Apple users do already have chargers, this leaves those who are new iPhone converts needing to shell out extra cash for something that should come with the iPhone. This can hurt for some, especially when you consider the price tag of between $700 and $1,100, depending on which model you decide to purchase.

That said, let’s go ahead and take a look at some iPhone accessories that you will want to pick up since the iPhone 13 doesn’t come with much.

The Best iPhone 13 Accessories

Like its predecessors, the iPhone 13 has a lot of great accessories that can help maximize the experience.

Some of the best ones to pick up include:

Apple MagSafe Charger

A relatively new offering from Apple, the MagSafe charger is only compatible with iPhone 12 and 13. However, this is an outstanding charger when stacked up against many of the existing wireless chargers on the market since the MagSafe attaches magnetically and provides up to 15W, thereby making it quite fast.

Apple AirPods Pro

While there are certainly a variety of fantastic wireless earbuds on the market, the AirPods Pro earbuds are (naturally) a great pairing with the iPhone 13 because of how they integrate with iOS and the larger Apple ecosystem. AirPods Pro will pair with the iPhone 13 in a single-step process and then will automatically pair themselves with any other Apple devices you may own.

Apple Silicone Case with MagSafe

Designed around the iPhone 13, Apple’s silicone case with MagSafe is a soft, silky, colorful way to ensure that your investment remains protected. Adding to the case’s protection is a microfiber soft lining that helps pad the phone from drops and other accidents.

The case’s built-in magnets enable you to perfectly align your iPhone with a MagSafe charger each and every time. Moreover, the case is compatible with other Qi-certified wireless chargers as well.

Apple MagSafe Battery Pack

While the MagSafe charger is awesome, the truth is that you are not always near an outlet when your phone needs a charge. Fortunately, a MagSafe battery pack solves this issue.

The fact is that there aren’t many battery backs on the market that are more convenient than this. A magnetic battery pack that simply snaps onto the back of your iPhone 13 and remains in place to provide a safe means of wirelessly charging your phone on the go is a great option.

For those times when you need to be productive on the run, a MagSafe portable battery pack is the ideal means of ensuring that your iPhone 13 stays fully charged.

Minimal Box Contents, Supreme Accessory Options

For most folks, the lack of a charger in the iPhone 13’s box is not a deal-breaker. The fact of the matter is that no matter which generation of iPhone you reference, the need to purchase additional accessories has always existed.

Fortunately, while you will need to pick up some extra items to really make the most of your iPhone 13 experience, there are some truly fantastic offerings on the market today.

So, when you are out purchasing your new iPhone 13, be sure to get yourself some (or all) of the accessories listed above to augment your new phone’s enjoyability.

Final Words

Apple iPhone 13 was more like the older iPhone models except for a few updates. One update is that the iPhone 13 has a better display, which means it can be used for better gaming and video watching. Another update is that the iPhone 13 comes with the most internal storage Apple has ever made. This means the users won’t have to worry about deleting photos and videos to make room for new ones.

The iPhone 13 has many other updates, like a better processor, longer battery life, and a better camera. It also has a new color called “smoke gray” which is a darker gray than last year’s iPhone color. We hope you enjoyed our blog, and if you have any questions or comments please leave them below!
