A long time coming, and after everyone else but Apple and T-Mobile have entered into an agreement to bring Apple products to market in 2013. This couldn’t be anymore of a clear sign of an imminent iPhone release sometime next year. T-Mobile has been inviting unlocked iPhone’s to their network for the past several years so having an official iPhone would be a welcome change. This deal between the two of them is only good between 2013-2015 but still, expect the iPhone and iPad to come soon.
