In recent months, Leap hasn’t been very thrilled about how many iPhones it’s selling.

Founded in 2010 by Michael Buckwald and David Holz (pictured), the company aims to revolutionize the way we interact with our computers.

That situation will change for the new iPhone, however, because T-Mobile has announced it will launch a new LTE network next year.
