Apple confirms T-Mobile getting products in 2013

Apple has confirmed news that T-Mobile will be carrying the company’s products in 2013.

The news came as part of a press release by T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom this morning. Apple representative, Natalie Harrison confirmed it for The Loop.

In the coming year, T-Mobile USA will continue to reinforce its market presence with additions to its rate plan and product portfolio, including Apple products. “Following on from the preceding steps such as the spectrum swap with Verizon, the towers deal with Crown Castle and the transaction with MetroPCS that we have announced, we have now added the final piece to the jigsaw to boost the competitiveness of T-Mobile USA sustainably,” said René Obermann.

T-Mobile representative Michelle Taylerson reiterated to The Loop that the company would bring Apple products to the carrier in 2013. “Additional details will be made available at a later date,” she said.

There was no mention of which Apple products T-Mobile would carry.

Update: Added the statement from T-Mobile.

    I would assume this includes the iPhone and iPad though I may assume too much. I thought I read that it had more to do with the frequencies that T-Mobile has in the US rather than subsidies.

    This is a good thing. I’ve heard many T-Mobile users say they would not switch carriers for the iPhone because of the customer service and the time it takes to switch carriers.

      I am one of the T-Mobile customers that has been waiting for this. Not just customer service as the reason. The legacy data plan that I have couldn’t be matched by other carriers.

    Is this the result after T-Mobile USA merges with MetroPCS and reconfigure the spectrums of MetroPCS’s bands to be the 4G LTE spectrum for them? http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444223104578034082455359970.html Sounds like a very exciting news!

    I am so very happy!!! I have a really affordable plan with T-Mobile and would not switch for anything. I am happy to know that I will now also have a really nice phone to go with a even cheaper plan! Kudos to T-Mobile for great customer service! (Especially Lucy, CS Rep in Loyalty Program in Tennessee with the 10 Kids!! Kudos to you!)
