Sprint has announced that it's set to offer new customers the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c for $100 less than Apple and rival carriers. The news appeared on Sprint's website, where the iPhone 5s (16GB) can be purchased for $99.99 come Sept. 20 (rather than $199). Apple's iPhone 5c (16GB), on the other hand, can be preordered for no upfront cost. Sprint also announced recently that it's set to launch an early upgrade program of its own, called One Up. Though such plans, which allow customers to purchase an iDevice through monthly instalments and to upgrade after 12 months, aren't recommended, it seems that Sprint's One Up offers subscribers a slightly better deal than AT&T Next, Verizon Edge, and T-Mobile Jump. One Up is set to launch on Sept. 20, the same day Apple's iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c launch in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Japan, and China.
