T-Mobile is seeing massive interest in the iPhone 7 from its customers, with CEO John Legere claiming pre-orders have surpassed previous iPhone releases already, all despite the controversial decision to remove the headphone jack from the new smartphone. While some may still find this unacceptable, it doesn’t seem to have put off loyal T-Mobile fans.
“I just wanna tell you,” Legere said during a Periscope broadcast, “This has been the biggest launch ever for us,” emphasizing the interest in the newly announced iPhone. He continued, “The first four days of the iPhone 7 launch are by far the biggest ever for T-Mobile. It’s four times bigger than the iPhone 6 for us, at this stage.” Legere described the current situation as a “phenomenon.”
He also asked people watching the stream to guess which model has attracted the most orders. It turns out that at T-Mobile, it’s the standard black iPhone 7 that’s proving most popular, but Legere himself has chosen to get the Jet Black version. Reserved for
