T-Mobile's iPhone and Apple Watch offers, announced on Wednesday, have now launched on the carrier's website today. The iPhone deal nets you a $200 rebate when purchasing the iPhone X, 8, 8 Plus, 7, or 7 Plus on an Equipment Installment Plan, received through a prepaid MasterCard card that you'll get in the mail about eight weeks after the order date. Check out our original blog post for more information, and head to T-Mobile's store to browse the available iPhones under the sale.
T-Mobile also shared new information on its Apple Watch deal, which lets you purchase one Apple Watch Series 3 device on an Equipment Installment Plan, with an Apple DIGITS plan on the same line, and get another one for 50 percent off (up to $215). The Apple Watch rebate amount isn't received through a MasterCard like the iPhone offer, but instead via 24 monthly bill credits, which typically begin on your second bill cycle.

The company said that it's requiring new devices to use its Apple DIGITS wearable plan "specifically because it's the right plan for Apple Watch Series 3," which lets your phone number work on any compatible LTE-enabled smartwatch. The company listed a few of the Apple Watch Series 3 models you can get with the offer, along with the monthly costs and full prices, which you can see below.

As for the iPhone X, the rebate is $200 + value of the trade in.
Eligible iPhones you can trade in are:
* iPhone 6S ($64 to $72, depending on the capacity)
* iPhone 6S Plus ($85 to $95)
* iPhone 7 ($122 to $131)
* iPhone 7 Plus ($163 to $175)
* iPhone 8 ($256 to $265)
* iPhone 8 Plus ($295 to $305)
So if you are trading in iPhone 6S 16GB, you will get $264 rebate toward purchasing iPhone X.
In comparison to Apple's iPhone Trade-Up offers:
* iPhone 6S: $160 (T-Mobile is $104 to $112 better)
* iPhone 6S Plus: $220 ($65 to $75)
* iPhone 7: $285 ($37 to $46)
* iPhone 7 Plus: $335 ($28 to $40)
But in the end, selling it on the open market should be better.
