T-Mobile & Apple To Sell Small-Business Connectivity Plan

 |  July 21, 2022

T-Mobile US said on Thursday it was working with Apple to offer a mobile phone plan that will include subsidized iPhones and a suite of paid services from Apple aimed at small-business owners.

The deal will help Apple with distribution of Business Essentials, a paid service it started last year for businesses with small or non-existent IT departments who still need to manage fleets of iPhones and other Apple devices for their workers. The Apple service, which ranges between $2.99 and $12.99 per month per employee, lets a businesses install and update apps and provide cloud storage to employees.

Under the new T-Mobile plan, which the carrier said is available immediately, T-Mobile will cover the cost of an iPhone 13 for each of a business’s employees and will bundle Business Essentials together with T-Mobile’s wireless service. The cost may be as low as $50 per month when a company has six lines or more on the plan.

T-Mobile said the plan also includes Wi-Fi coverage on flights from American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and Alaska Airlines, with United Airlines coming later this year.
