T-Mobile Customers Can Now Enroll in iPhone Upgrade Program Online

T-Mobile customers are now able to enroll in the iPhone Upgrade program online, a process that used to require a visit to an Apple Store.

The change is reflected in updated language in the Apple Store app, which now says that customers can join the iPhone Upgrade Program online with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon.

AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint users have been able to enroll in the iPhone Upgrade Program online since the program launched, allowing for online purchases of new iPhones, but T-Mobile subscribers who wanted to upgrade to a new iPhone using the iPhone Upgrade Program could not do so online like other customers for previous iPhone launches.

With this policy change, T-Mobile customers who plan to purchase a new iPhone using the iPhone Upgrade Program when the 2018 iPhones launch should be able to do so entirely online without visiting a retail store.

Apple last year offered pre-approvals for the iPhone Upgrade Program, which allowed iPhone Upgrade Program customers to get through the checkout process more quickly when pre-orders kicked off.

Apple is likely to offer the same pre-approval process this year, which customers of all carriers will be able to participate in. Apple also offered Trade-in kits delivered by mail last year, another option previously not available to T-Mobile users.

I’ve been debating on switching to T-Mobile.. it’s just a tough jump lol... I know their coverage isn’t on par with AT&T. But AT&T has been slippin lately
With T-Mobile, you at least get WiFi Calling. My office is a dead zone for cell signal - an old concrete building with enough reinforcement to block everything. Two of us are on T-Mobile, the other two are on Verizon. I just hop on the WiFi and have plenty of coverage.

Can someone explain to me what’s the difference of getting this upgrade program versus paying T-Mobile jump program and paying a down payment and a $30 monthly there after for 24 payments?
You get AppleCare+ included, also you only pay taxes on iPhone thru Apple, no down payment

Looks like we know when pre-orders are going up!
Would be smarter for them to do it Saturday morning since the majority of people won’t have to go back to sleep and wake up for work after they preorder.
