T-Mobile outs the best deal on iPhone 8/Plus and iPhone X pre-orders so far

Just like with the iPhone 7, T-Mobile didn't hesitate to be the first to pull the trigger on iPhone 8/Plus and X promos, as it just sent us the pre-order details, throwing in the Apple Watch 3 for a good measure.

First off, it introduces a $300 discount, as long as you trade in at least an iPhone 6 in good condition. For comparison, AT&T's trade-in offer for a 32 GB iPhone 7 is sub-$300 at the moment, while an iPhone 6 trade-in at Verizon brings $200 towards the purchase of the new iPhones.

Next up is an upgrade offer similar to its JUMP program that will make potential buyers grin with delight. T-Mobile will is introducing a fresh iPhone upgrade program, in time for the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and the X. When you hit 50% of their price on T-Mobile's installment plans, you can trade them in, and upgrade to the next iPhone for free, as the carrier will wipe the remaining balance, essentially locking you into yearly upgrades, instead of having to pay the phone for two years, or cover what's left. 

Those who pre-order the new iPhones by either buying them outright, or on an installment plan, will get this one-time benefit for free, too, so CEO John Legere didn't hesitate to brag a little:

Apart from the seasonal iPhone crop, T-Mobile will also carry the Apple Watch Series 3 on September 22, and has a special introductory plan for it  with 3 months of free LTE connectivity, after which keeping the Watch 3 in the 4G loop will cost $10 a month with AutoPay. As for pricing of the new iPhones and Watch Series 3 - well, it's the same tags that Apple announced, yet T-Mobile is sweetening the pot with a prolonged BOGO of sorts, in the form of its new iPhone upgrade program.
