Leaked document shows Apple will match Sprint's $149.99 contract price for Apple iPhone 4S
With Apple iPhone fans waiting for the 6th generation of the device, which almost certainly will come with a larger screen, it is not a shock to see the current model get sliced in price in an attempt to move as much inventory as possible before the new unit hits the market. That could come as soon as September 21st after an introduction of the new model on September 12th.

Leaked document shows Apple Store price match on Sprint's Apple iPhone 4S
First to blink was Sprint, which cut $50 off the price of the Apple iPhone 4S to $149.99 with your John Hancock on a 2-year pact. Additionally, the carrier also decided to waive the $36 activation fee, bringing your total savings to $86. If a leaked document is legit, Apple has decided to match the price at Apple Stores. There is one small caveat: you need to ask the rep to match Sprint's price. This has the advantage of allowing Apple to keep advertising the old $199.99 contract price while still allowing those in the know (like Phone Arena readers) to grab the discount.

Besides the 16GB model, Apple Store visitors can ask for price matching on the 32GB unit ($249.99) and the 64GB version ($349.99) That is a savings of $49.01 from the listed price for each model. And since the price matching applies only to Sprint at the moment, the discount will be only for the Sprint branded variant of the Apple iPhone 4S.
