    1. Hello, this is Rita. No it will not cost to update your phone to the latest software version 13.0 on September 19 and or version 13.1 on September 30. However, it should be noted that if you have a iPhone 6 or an iPhone 6 Plus, or earlier models of iPhones. It will not be able to be updated with the latest iOS 13 software.
