T-Mobile to update Test Drive phones to iOS 8 and eventually switch to the Apple iPhone 6
T-Mobile currently offers a promotion that allows consumers to "Test Drive" its network for one week. The carrier not only supplies its network for free, it also allows those checking out its pipeline to use a free Apple iPhone 5s. Of course, each test driver has a $699.99 hold put on a credit card, just in case. T-Mobile is planning to update the fleet of phones that it uses for the promotion, to iOS 8. That update should start rolling out as soon as next week. This way, those testing the network can also check it out with Apple's latest OS.

As far as upgrading the phone used in the Test Drive is concerned, a spokesman for the nation's fourth largest carrier said that eventually T-Mobile would replace the iPhone 5s with the Apple iPhone 6. The spokesman said that there are many factors that will determine when the switch is made, including availability of the phone. Considering that the iPhone 6 has just launched, it will probably be a while before we see a change.
