Walmart To Slash iPhone 5C to 97 Cents, iPhone 5S to $79 To Make Room For iPhone 6 Inventory
The folks at CNET have it on good authority (a Walmart spokesperson) that Walmart's planning to reduce the price of the iPhone 5C from $29 to just $0.97 effective Thursday at 9 AM local time. Walmart is also planning to cut the price of its remaining iPhone 5S inventory, which will drop from $99 to $79.
All color options are included in the price reductions. They also require a two-year service agreement with AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, or U.S. Cellular.
Though no announcement has been made, the price cuts are obvious indicators of Apple's impending launch of the iPhone 6 next month. Leaked photos, documents, videos, and information have been hitting the web at a steady pace for the last several months, most of which point to Apple releasing 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch versions of its next flagship handset.
