Apple's new iPhones will come to T-Mobile

Shortly after Apple unveiled its iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, the company's online store displayed the on-contract pricing for the two smartphones at three US mobile operators: AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. The cost when opting for T-Mobile, which is one the four largest carriers in the country, was yet to be revealed.

Today, T-Mobile decided to shed some light on the matter and announced that it will officially offer the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C under its "Un-carrier" financing deals, with sales to kick off on September 20 (same day as at other local mobile operators).

T-Mobile subscribers will be able to purchase the new 16GB iPhone 5S for $99 down coupled with $22.91 monthly payments spread over the course of two years. The 32 GB and 64 GB models will either add more to the initial downpayment or the monthly payments, if the current T-Mobile offer for the iPhone 5 is of any indication.

For the iPhone 5S, off-contract, Apple charges $649 for the 16 GB version, $749 for the 32 GB version and $849 for the 64 GB version. Expect to pay a little less at T-Mobile: $648.85, $748.84 and $848.84, respectively.

The iPhone 5C, which is available to pre-order starting today at T-Mobile (and other local mobile operators), goes for $22 per month over the course of two years, for the 16 GB version (the 32 GB version should add a $99 downpayment and slightly higher monthly payments). There is no initial downpayment required for the 16 GB iPhone 5C. The off-contract pricing is $528 for the 16 GB version and $648.48 for the 32 GB version. For the same models, Apple charges $549 and $649, respectively.

iPhone 5C preorders have kicked off at AT&T (the 16 GB model goes for $99.99 on a two-year contract or $22 per month with AT&T Next, while the 32 GB model goes for $199.99 on a two-year contract or $27 per month with AT&T Next), Sprint and Verizon (at either US mobile operator the smartphone goes for $99 or $199, for the 16 GB or 32 GB version, respectively, with a two-year contract).
