Leaked internal Walmart memo allegedly hints at price hike for Apple iPhone 6s (UPDATE: Walmart made a typo)
The release of the next-gen iPhones will change the pricing for older models, according to the memo. The 16GB Apple iPhone 6 will be reduced to $118 with a signed two-year Verizon contract, and the 64GB model will be reduced to $218. The memo calls for the 16GB Apple iPhone 5s to be priced at just $18 with a signed Verizon contract. All color options are covered by the memo.
We suggest that you open the pantry and take this with a grain of salt. It does seem to be way too early to be discussing the pricing for the iPhone 6s, although truthfully we could be just 8 weeks away from seeing the next generation iPhone models officially introduced by Apple.
Thanks for the tip!
UPDATE: We've heard from Walmart and the discount retailer admits that they sent the memo. However, the person who wrote it made a typo and tapped out Apple iPhone 6s when he meant to type Apple iPhone 6 Plus. So it appears that Walmart will be running a sale on the Verizon branded 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. The 16GB model will be priced at $218 and the 64GB variant will cost you $318. Both prices require your signature on a two-year contract.
