Mobile Syrup has a pretty big scoop this morning: they’ve been able to confirm that Freedom Mobile will start carrying the iPhone in-store as of December 8th. And not cast-off refurbished hardware, either—the carrier will offer new stock and the full complement of 2017’s iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X.
In Western Canada there will be even more Apple product to choose from; because FM is already running their 2500MHz spectrum in that part of the country the iPhone 6, 6s, 6s Plus, SE, 7 and 7 Plus will be available on the same date. Those same devices will be available in Eastern Canada once that spectrum gets lit up in early 2018.
Canadians who finance their smartphone purchases (ie. most of us) stand to reap some considerable savings over 24 months, as all iPhones will be $0 down. Check the link below for details on that.
It will be interesting to see what Apple’s iconic smartphone can do for Freedom’s subscriber numbers and, if there ends up being a big influx of new users, whether or not FM’s young LTE network can handle it.
