The company did not provide specific sales numbers.To celebrate beating last year's pre-orders for the iPhone 6, T-Mobile is offering subscribers of its Jump upgrade program a $5 a month installment plan for the iPhone 6s with 16 gigabytes and $9 monthly deal for the iPhone 6s Plus 16 GB with the trade-in of an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 6s is available for $20 a month without a trade-in.

They are up 8% over the last three months, outperforming the broader S&P 500, which is down 8.5%.
