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 (NASDAQ:AAL), Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL), and Alaska Airlines, with United Airlines coming later this year.

The agreement would assist Apple in spreading the word about Business Essentials, a subscription service it launched last year for companies with little or no IT support but who still need to manage employee fleets of iPhones and other Apple devices. Businesses may install and update programmes as well as offer cloud storage to employees using the Apple service, which costs between $2.99 and $12.99 per month per employee.
“We built a plan around Apple Business Essentials that gives small businesses everything that they’re going to need to keep their employees connected,” Callie Field, president of T-Mobile’s business group, said in an interview. The T-Mobile plan also includes AppleCare+, Apple’s insurance program that covers repairs or replacement for damaged devices. T-Mobile is handling all customer billing under the new deal, and the two companies declined say how much of the $50 monthly fee T-Mobile will pass on to Apple.
