Update: Apple denies MVNO plans.
The sources of Business Insider claim that the Apple MVNO will work like this: "Instead of paying your carrier every month, you will pay Apple directly for data, calls, and texts. Apple then provides you with everything you used to get from your carrier, but the Apple SIM switches between carriers to get the best service. The telecoms companies auction capacity to Apple so it can run the service."
Business Insider's James Cook says that this rumor does not mean that Apple will launch such a service. It could also take up to 5 years to roll out an MVNO. Apple has already spent years talking with carriers over an Apple mobile network.
Apple is in love with controlling everything. The carrier necessity to operate its iPhones has been a thorne in Apple's heart since the launch.
Carriers are not that interested in an Apple MVNO. Google has though already managed to launch an MVNO for its Nexus phone.
