T-Mobile CEO Promises More Apple Products Are Coming

After posting its strongest customer growth in 4 years, T-Mobile CEO John Legere told AllThingsD that more Apple products are coming to the T-Mobile network.

“I think there’s a whole array of Apple products that we look forward to carrying,” Legere said. “We will expand what we offer from them.”

T-Mobile iPad

Legere is most likely referencing Apple's rumored iPhone 5S and low-cost iPhone 5C, but the second part of his statement could mean a T-Mobile iPad is in the works. T-Mobile was one of the last major U.S. cellular providers to carry Apple's iPhone, and it has worked out well for them. T-Mobile added 1.1 million customers after its iPhone 5 debut, and it also sold 4.3 million total smartphones, with the iPhone making up 29 percent of the sales. Of course a lot of T-Mobile's growth also had to do with Samsung's Galaxy S4, and its new Jump and Simple Choice plans.

T-Mobile could be looking to add the iPad 5, iPad mini with Retina display and the rumored iWatch to its roster of Apple devices. Apple's iPad fits in perfect with T-Mobile's UnCarrier payment plan, since it does not require users agree to a two-year contract to buy one.
