Walmart, one of the world’s largest retailers, has been putting up the iPhone 5s as well as the supposedly budget iPhone, the iPhone 5c, on sale for quite some time already, and it seems that it is time for a slight change to be introduced. From this Friday onward, the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c will be made available via Walmart on its own contract-free carriers, namely Straight Talk Wireless and Net10 Wireless. You will not find them to be any cheaper or more expensive, as the prices have been matched to those found on the Apple Store where SIM-free iPhones are concerned.
This would mean an iPhone 5s 16GB from Walmart (which can be picked up in store only) will set you back by $650 a pop, while those who want to pick up an iPhone 5c 16GB (which can be purchased online) can do so for $550. Of course, if being on the cutting edge of Apple’s technology is not exactly high on your list of priorities, Walmart will also be offering the iPhone 4S 8GB for $450 a pop, where it can be picked up in store as well as online. Does this make your life easier? Perhaps the timing of it all has something to do with the upcoming holiday season…[Press Release]
