It seems that Walmart has brought down the prices of the current iPhone 4 for both Verizon and AT&T customers, bringing the price tag down to $147 from a price tag of $197. Of course this will require customers to be tied to a 2-year contract which is more or less standard, but what are the implications of this price drop?
This move was brought about shortly before WWDC started and even though Apple had promised that there would be no new hardware revealed at this year’s WWDC, does Walmart know something that we don’t? As it stands the iPhone 4 remains Apple’s most popular device to date and the best seller of all the iPhones, which means that demand is still there so why would Walmart bring the price down unless they know that the iPhone 4 will be phased out soon and they are attempting to clear their stock and make room for the next generation iPhone?
An e-mail from Walmart’s PR team taken from MobileCrunch reveals:
Walmart today announced a price reduction on the iPhone 4 which will be available for $147 today, June 6 through June 30 at select stores.
These savings apply to both the AT&T and Verizon versions of the iPhone 4 in both black and white colors. Pricing requires a new two-year wireless and data agreement or qualified upgrade.
Please let us know if you are interested in covering this announcement. We look forward to hearing from you!
Maybe we are reading too much into it and it could just be a sale for all we know, either way Apple’s WWDC is still on-going which means there’s still a tiny, tiny chance that we could be surprised.
OnePlus Has iPhone 6S Case Now
Now here’s an iPhone 6S case that will certainly turn heads, especially when you take into consideration its name which is known as the OnePlus iPhone 6S case. That’s rather weird, don’t you think so? It will certainly take some getting used to before the name rolls off your tongue naturally. Well, we do know that The OnePlus iPhone 6S case can now be purchased for $19.99 a pop, and no, you do not need any kind of invite before you can snag one for yourself.
Each purchase will also be accompanied by an invitation to purchase a OnePlus X, just in case, you know, you would like to tread the Android waters. All in all, it comes in the kind of material as found on the OnePlus One and OnePlus X, which makes it a whole lot harder to lose grip of when you hold it – which is good!
iPhone 6S Prepares For September 18th Release Date
If you are on the lookout for either the iPhone 6S or the iPhone 6S Plus, then here is news for you – chances are pretty high that you can pick up either one, or perhaps even both if you are feeling fat in the pocket, this coming September 18th. First of all, there was a leaked internal memo from Vodafone alongside Japanese site ITHome and German tech experts Macerkopf claiming that the new iPhones 6S models will roll out this coming September 18th in their respective countries
With Japan, Germany and the UK being tier one Apple launch countries, this means that those living in the mentioned countries will receive the iPhones at the same time as folks living over in the US – traditionally speaking, of course. There really isn’t that much time left to wait, as it is less than a month away, and I am quite sure that the time will pass by sooner than you think.
iPad Air 3 Not Coming This Year According To Rumors
It looks like the folks over at Digitimes have come up with their own interpretation of things to come – that there will be no iPad Air 3 released, at least for this year. Digitimes has had their fair share of hits and misses in the past, so it would be best to take this rumor concerning the non-release of the iPad Air 3 in 2015 with a pinch of salt.
Digitimes also laid claim that the iPad mini 4 will not be as supercharged as some of the rumors that had been going around, as it will bring with it only small and incremental upgrades when compared to its predecessor, the iPad mini 3. This does not seem to bode well for fans of the compact tablet, taking into consideration how the iPad mini 3 itself was improved over its predecessor with a new Touch ID fingerprint reader.
Since Apple tends to roll out a new iPad in October, we will just have to sit tight and see whether this particular rumor has enough “legs” to run.
