iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro are coming to T-Mobile


Yesterday Apple revealed its new iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and while T-Mobile hasn’t yet announced any launch or pricing details for either device, they will be coming to Magenta.

A tipster sent in the image you see below, which shows an internal T-Mobile blog post announcing that the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro will be coming to T-Mobile. No pricing or launch details are given, but both devices are said to be coming “soon.”


Additionally, T-Mobile has put landing pages on its site for both the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro, confirming that they’re coming soon to T-Mo stores.

Unfortunately, there’s still no word on T-Mobile’s launch or pricing plans for either of Apple’s new devices. Apple did announce its own pricing for the new hardware yesterday, though. The iPhone SE will cost $399 for the 16GB model and $499 for the 64GB model, or $17 per month with a 24-month payment plan. Meanwhile, the cellular versions of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro will cost $729 for 32GB, $879 for 128GB, and $1,029 for 256GB.

Apple has said that it’ll begin taking orders for the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro on March 24, and both devices are scheduled to launch in Apple stores on March 31.

Thanks, anonymous!

    I’m all in for the 5se. Love the smaller form factor and updated specs.

    • Mike

      Updated??? My old S5 has better specs.

      • Mike

        Yeah but s5 in not an apple. It’s all a matter what youre use to. I happen to like the apple product. Had everyone of the galaxy phones from start of the line to the s5. Galaxy is a good phone just getting out of control price wise.

        • Mike

          a 34GB galaxy w/expandle storage cost the same as a 16gb iPhone w/ no expandable storage

        • matt

          the galaxies don’t have GSM and CDMA in the same handset, so if you want to switch it to sprint or verizon, you have to throw away your useless brick and buy a CDMA one, you don’t have to do this with the iPhone, so i think its worth the extra premium. a lot of companies are trying to unload phones on trade ins. and a lot of phone companies require their special versions to be used on their network. the iPhones were selling gsm+cdma enabled before google did.

          lg joke : why does the lg g3 called the g3? because it only has 3 channels.

          plus you get software updates.

          back in the modem days we didn’t argue about how you could get 5 avatex 2400 baud modems for the same price as a Us robotics dual standard. thats what these android vs iPhone arguments are like.

          its like saying a HAYES V.32 is better then a USR courier dual standard 56k, because the Hayes is cheaper. oh god

          yeah hayes v.32 is cheaper. but it has less standards and its a lot slower. if you keep the wrong android phone when you switch cell companies its like having a 9600 bps modem when the bbs you’re calling is 28.8

          yesterday my macbook pro showed a battery error. i got a some 004 error in the bios. i went to the apple store and got a free diagnostic test on a 3 year old mac book pro. thats pretty awesome. if i had a dell or any other brand of laptop that might be cheaper then a mac book pro, i’d probably have to take it to geek squad and pay $150 for the same test or i might have to buy a $150 battery for which i didn’t need. or in the case of dell studio xps , a counterfeit one.

          if you have problems with your android phone, you have to go to an AT&T store. and not just any AT&T store but a special store that deals with troubleshooting and repairs. and when you show up they really cant do anything to help you. when you do show up. they just tell you yeah you can either replace your phone with asuron or you can go to batteries plus. they don’t help you to trouble shoot it or run any diagnostic tests on it

          you don’t have to put up with Geek Squad or Staples Easy Tech fees when you buy an iPhone.

          another thing that recently bugged me was samsung. i wanted out of curiosity how much it cost to replace the s7 and s7 edge screens, because of what i heard about on i fix it. they wouldnt tell me!!! it was some trade secret!! they refused to tell me how much they charge for repairing phones unless i gave them the serial # or imei # off the unit. yeah apple charges 109 – 129 and 149 for replacement screens but at least they are open about it and have web pages to tell you how much they charge. samsung DOES NOT

          i had an someone i knew wanted to backup her mac. she didn’t ask me what to do. she didn’t go to the genius bar , she did not know about time machine. she went to geek squad. they charged her $149 to backup her computer to DVD-rs. an apple store would of offered to sell her an external hard disk or time capsule and show her how to turn on time machine

        • Mike

          The GSM and CDMA is not a concern for majority of people and the Verizon Galaxy phones has GSM support domestically and internationally . Sprint version has GSM support as well but Sprint only allows it to be used internationally.

      • S. Ali

        Does it have the latest Android? If not, who cares?

      • Adrayven

        Ironic, but that iPhone SE will run circles around that S5 in spite of those better “specs”

        Which I find massively hilarious.

  • Corey

    Hopefully Tmo doesn’t require the $100 difference up front for the bigger 64g on EIP like they usually do for iPhone’s.

    • Tmoblows

      They will jack it up $200 Plus because they know they can siphon the poor

      • Tmoblows Blows

        Yet you’re still on this website posting Mr Tmoblows. T-Mobile sells Apple products the same cost as Apple. Manufacturers control the price of the devices, not T-Mobile.

      • Andrew

        they’ve literally never done this with any of the other products. you’re a troll.

      • matt

        t-mobile doesnt jack it up $200. thats a lie. what phone companies like verizon do is throw in a bunch of useless apps on android to try and make up that $200 that they cant get from iphones

    • Prode

      they will. Since they do on all the devices.

      • Corey

        Ya they probably will. It’s wasted money when I frequently Jump.

  • guest

    Thank you Apple for making a 4″ phone. Now I expect other manufactures following that idea and start making smaller premium or mid range phones.

    • Acdc1a

      We’ll see how well it sells, my guess is not very.

      • guest

        I’m pretty sure many parents will buy it for their kids, not that I’m saying it is for kids, of course.

        • Acdc1a

          The type that would normally buy their kids an iPhone…maybe…but their friends are still going to have the bigger ones. Most parents I know don’t buy the kids iPhones but rather inexpensive Android devices.

        • Ty Christensen

          Yep, my daughter is 11 and we just got her a phone for the first time and it’s a cheap LG Optimus L90 that I bought in a TMo store for $50 last year, I ain’t about to drop $400 on this new iPhone for her let alone going up to $550 for a iPhone 6 or $650 for a 6s that is just ludicrous for a 12 year old kid to have in my opinion, a co-worker of mine gets all his kids the latest and greatest Android and Apple phones the second they come out with the original jump and pays over $300 a month for 5 lines with all their device payments which to me is just complete stupidity, teenage kids don’t need to have the latest and greatest smartphone.

        • Acdc1a

          I don’t pay $400 for my own devices! My wife is almost always a generation behind on her phone too for that very reason (although she tried the Note 5 before very quickly going back to her 4).

    • cptsimian

      You mean Apple finally noticed the Sony Xperia Z compacts?

      • guest

        I almost forgot the Z Compact.

        But I was thinking LG and Samsung primarily. If the SE is successful it will open/reopen/widen that market for others.

        • cptsimian

          Hopefully it does, I’d just like T-Mobile to at least bring back Sony and Motorola phones so we can have a wider selection.

      • HiiPOWERuser

        Doubt it

    • Adrayven

      It’s not like they stopped. Might have something to do with 30+ million that buy 4″ iPhones still. Which, if you didn’t know, is how many bought the iPhone 5s last year.

  • joeypore

    I spoke with a T-mobile rep yesterday who said their call centers and stores will start taking pre-orders for both devices starting on the 24th.

    All new products will be available via Jump on Demand as well.

  • Brian the populist.

    Cant wait to get one flor my lil bro. I had my first phone when i was 12 now im 22. my first phone was probaly a blackberry and so forth. if the best is out there and my brodeserves the best. Treat other how you would treat urselves.

  • matt

    i read at apple that the new ipad pro 9.7 has an embedded apple sim along with a sim tray for another sim card. and that if you buy the ipad pro 9.7 from a phone carrier , the embedded apple sim may be disabled. , this new ipad is the first one to ever have an embedded sim

  • Teresa Carol Tidwell

    I’m considering getting this phone. I just don’t like the larger sized phones – I’m afraid I’ll drop them. I’ve currently got a 5s & a 4″ screen is enough for me. However I wonder how thick is the phone. I’ve seen 6’s & 6s’s & IMO they’re way too thin! Any thoughts?

  • oh geez

    Another IPhone? What, are these things coming out quarterly now? This must prove the economy isn’t too bad, if everyone has the money to waste every time a new phone comes out.

  • mavricxx

    Sucks for Apple, I wanted to upgrade all our iPad minis but since they didn’t upgrade any of them I guess we’ll stay with the same devices for another yr again or until a badass Android tablet comes along.
