According to a leaked internal memo posted by TmoNews, T-Mobile is going to be dropping the upfront price of both the iPhone 5s and 5c to $0 down on its usual instalment plans for Black Friday. That cuts the usual down payment for the iPhone 5s down from $149 and the iPhone 5c from $49. The deal will officially kick off on Friday and last through Sunday, but the report notes that “a select number of stores will be accepting orders from Thursday evening.” After getting your iPhone for $0 down, you’ll pay around $20 a month for 24 months on T-Mobile instalment plans.
Some regionals carriers are also gearing up for big discounts this Friday. Appalachian Wireless announced it will offer the 16GB iPhone 5, 5C or 5S for a penny on contract today only and nTelos will also have the iPhone 5c for $0 on Friday. Appalachian is also advertising the penny deal for Black Friday on its site, but no word if iPhones will be included after today. T-Mobile definitely beats Walmart’s best deal with the iPhone 5c for around $45 on contract, but we’re thinking other retailers and carriers might announce iPhone discounts for Black Friday too.
While Sunday is the last day for the $0 down T-Mobile deal, the carrier will also be offering the iPhone 5c for $10 down and the iPhone 5s for $50 down on Cyber Monday. The T-Mobile leak doesn’t specify, but we’d imagine that deal would be for the 16GB models of the iPhones like the other carriers.

Redesigned icons for iPhoto for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and Garageband have appeared in the iCloud Storage Management function in the iOS Settings app. The new icons are simpler, flatter, and is designed with iOS 7′s new icon grid system in mind. They are a stark contrast from the colorful, 3D-like icons used in the current versions of the apps.
In line with the app redesigns for all of Apple’s bundled iOS 7 apps, it is likely that the new icon will come as a complement to a completely redesigned version of the iPhoto app. When Apple released iOS 7 last month, the designs to Apple’s App Store apps went noticeably unchanged. Besides iPhoto, Apple has a slew of other App Store apps (like iWork’s Pages, Numbers, and Keynote & iLife’s iMovie). However, there are yet to be any solid indications of redesigns for the other apps…
The icons for iCloud Storage Management are handled over-the-air, so it appears that Apple uploaded the new iPhoto icon prematurely. Next week, Apple is planning to release new versions of the iPad that run iOS 7. It seems likely that Apple could introduce the new version of iPhoto (and perhaps other apps) alongside the new iPads.
We previously created some mockups of what iPhoto and Garageband (and other Apple apps) could look like in an iOS 7 world.
Thanks, Alvaro and Jason for the leads!
