Comcast’s Xfinity Mobile carrier today announced that it will start selling the iPad and Apple Watch Series 4. The iPad and Apple Watch join the iPhone in Xfinity’s lineup of Apple products.
Xfinity will sell the Apple Watch Series 4 beginning on June 28th, while the iPad mini, 9.7-inch iPad, iPad Air 10.15-inch, and iPad Pro 10.5-inch are available for purchase starting today. Comcast touts that these are the first non-smartphone devices available on Xfinity Mobile, as the carrier does not sell any competing smartwatches or tablets.
Xfinity Mobile is available to Xfinity Internet customers, who can add up to five lines of unlimited talk and text. As for data, there are two options: $12 per gigabyte or $45 per line for unlimited data (throttled after 20GB). Xfinity touts that users can adjust their data plan at anytime during their billing cycle to ensure they’re making the most economically smart decision.
As for pricing for non-smartphone devices, you’ll be able to add an iPad or Apple Watch to your existing Xfinity Mobile plan for $10 per month per device. The devices will then share from your existing pool of data. This is pretty standard in comparison to other carriers.
You can buy the iPad mini, 9.7-inch iPad, iPad Air 10.15-inch, and iPad Pro 10.5-inch from Xfinity Mobile today, but only through Xfinity retail stores. All of the devices are available for $0 down with device payment plans. Full press release below.
