Walmart cuts price of iPhone 5 to $98 ahead of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C launch
As Apple prepares to launch its flagship iPhone 5S and mid-range iPhone 5C, Walmart has cut the price of the current flagship iPhone 5 to $98.
It's no secret that Apple will be unveiling two new iPhones on September 10. The iPhone 5S will become the company's flagship iPhone and the iPhone 5C will be a less expensive, mid-range model. There have been rumors that, unlike previous years, Apple plans on discontinuing the iPhone instead of lowering its price and offering it as a mid-range iPhone. It is believed that the iPhone 5C will replace the iPhone 5 and feature the same internals as the smartphone, but swap out the aluminum iPhone 5 case for a cheaper polycarbonate case. Essentially, consumers will be purchasing an iPhone 5 in a redesigned shell.
Walmart knows that it will offer both new iPhones and has slashed the price of the Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint iPhone 5. The move is likely aiming to rid the retailer of inventory of a smartphone that might be discontinued come September 10. The retailer is now offering the 16GB iPhone 5 for $98 when signing a new 2-year contract. If the rumors are true that the iPhone 5C will replace the iPhone 5, you might want to consider this deal.
While the iPhone 5C will come with a newly-designed case, the plastic case is thicker than the iPhone 5's premium aluminum shell, which will also be used with the flagship iPhone 5S. The iPhone 5 is also upgradable to iOS 7, which features a completely redesigned user interface and comes packed with new and exciting features. Apple has already confirmed that the iPhone 5 will be capable of supporting all of the new features built into in iOS 7, including the new camera application and filters, and a much faster, smarter, and updated Siri with new voices. Those are just a few of the new iOS 7 features the iPhone 5 will support.

Once a brand gains the trust and loyalty of its market, it is only logical that it attempts to flex its dominant muscle. Such is the tale that fits the recent price hike coming from the stable of Netflix. Having baited consumers into believing that streaming, and not cable subscription, is the right way to go, Netflix has now decided to drop its own form of a bombshell on consumers in the form of price increment. The news, which was announced earlier this year, detailed that Netflix would be raising prices across all of its plans by 13 to 18 percent.
