You don’t need to be a fly on the wall at Apple headquarters to know that a new iPhone is coming. Instead, just visit an Apple reseller. Beginning today, June 22, AT&T and Walmart are offering incredible deals on existing models to help clear inventory ahead of the new iPhone launch.
The second largest carrier in the U.S. often runs 50 percent off sales
. However, that list doesn’t usually include iPhones.
Through June 30, the U.S. carrier is offering the iPhone 5 for as little as $99 with a two-year contract. AT&T is also waving its usual one-time activation fee and shipping is free.
Note: Deals show up once an item is added to a shopping cart online.
Meanwhile, Walmart has slashed the price
of the iPhone 5 indefinitely. The retailer is now offering an entry-level iPhone 5 for $129, while the price for an iPhone 4S has dropped to $39. You’ll need to sign a new two-year contract with AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint to qualify.
These are incredible deals. However, we'd like to remind readers that Apple is expected to announce the "iPhone 5S" in the coming months.
If you really need a new phone now, go with the iPhone 5. Otherwise, you might be disappointed. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S are both likely to be discontinued when the new model arrives. In addition, neither model supports most of the features in iOS 7.
