T-Mobile to sell iPhone in 2013 Video Transcript
-The iPhone carrier circle will soon be complete. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNET Update. T-Mobile will finally get the iPhone. T-Mobile announced that it made a deal to sell Apple products next year and John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile USA, said T-Mobile will be targeting AT&T heavily and sell it at a very competitive price. He also said T-Mobile has lost customers before because it didn't carry the popular phone. T-Mobile also will offer these less expensive service plans if you pay for the phone in full at once or over 20 monthly installments, and if you want to upgrade before you pay it off, you'll get trade-in value for it.

Apple's chief Tim Cook said the company will be investing $100 million to move some of the Mac production that's currently being done overseas. This won't be a giant change. It's likely that most parts will still be made in Asia and the popular iPhone and iPad will still be manufactured abroad. By bringing some of the jobs to the US does help Apple's image.

Tim Cook is also dropping hints that Apple is working on a new television concept. In an interview with NBC, Cook said that changing the current state of television is "an area of intense interest." He didn't give away much else, but it's no surprise that this is on Apple's radar. The only question is, when will this happen? It's complicated to shake up the current deals between network studio ***CUT DICTATION***
