T-Mobile’s continuing push to be the “Uncarrier” among standard mobile service providers is getting an Apple-themed boost this summer. 

The mobile carrier announced it is adding Apple Music to its Music Freedom plan and will offer free upgrades to anyone who buys an iPhone 6 in the coming months.

Music Freedom isn’t a widely known feature from T-Mobile, but it is an extremely handy one. Covering 33 services, Music Freedom allows T-Mobile users to stream content freely; it doesn’t count against your data limit. Apple Music joins the list of unlimited streaming. 

According to T-Mobile’s John Legere, “39 percent of U.S. wireless users we asked said they avoid streaming on their phones−over half because they worry about shock overages.” You’ll still have to pay the monthly subscription cost for Apple Music—currently still in the midst of a three-month free trial period—but there’s no worrying about it contributing to a bigger phone bill.

T-Mobile will also be extending another program to Apple aficionados. The carrier introduced its Jump On Demand plan a few weeks back, which gave customers the ability to upgrade to a new phone without paying anything out of pocket. The offer now includes a free upgrade from the iPhone 6 to the yet-to-be-announced iPhone, sure to be introduced later this year.

Any person picking up an iPhone 6 from T-Mobile over the summer will be eligible for the upgrade. The deal lasts through Labor Day and works retroactively for anyone with an iPhone 6 on the Jump On Demand plan. Those on the program will also have priority for the next-generation iPhone if they order within the first 48 hours of it becoming available.
