In a novel development by T-Mobile, the company has made few fresh announcements. This includes free Apple Music streaming and an upgraded iPhone trade-in plan, an exciting inducement for iPhone lovers.
In an announcement today, the mobile communications company, T-Mobile said that it plans to add Apple Music streaming to its existing services, called Music Freedom, which as of now accounted for 95% of music streamed in the United States. Under its “#Uncarrier” initiative, T-Mobile ensures that the streamed tunes from various music apps do not eat into the allotted data.
Another big announcement included an update to its JUMP! On Demand iPhone trade-in program. Under the ‘JUMP! On Demand’ program, buyers could upgrade their phones up to three times a year, at no extra cost. Earlier, the company charged $10 to participate in the Jump program, on top of the cost of the phone, paid in monthly installments. However, with the new program, customers are eligible for automatic upgrades without paying any additional fee.
Customers could also rent a new iPhone and when a new model of the iPhone came out, they could trade-in their old phone and upgrade to the new model. However, the announcement made today allows customers who bought an iPhone 6 this summer, to lock-in the $15 rate for the next iPhone when it comes out, given that the customers trade in a working phone at the time of purchase. This would mean that subscribers who buy a new iPhone 6 would not have to worry, as T-Mobile would lock in the current price indefinitely.
