Rumor of Verizon Apple iPhone 5 discount suggests new model is coming
Reliable tipster evleaks has sent out a tweet about a big-time rumor involving the Apple iPhone 5. According to the message, Verizon is going to chop $100 off the price of the Apple iPhone 5 taking it down to $99.99 with a signed two year contract. While an exact date wasn't mentioned, the tweet does say that the deal will start in the middle of this month.

Considering that Verizon hasn't said a word about having a problem moving the iPhone 5, could this be a way to clear out inventory before the next iteration of the device is launched? Or is this a way to keep customers from bolting because of the extremely late May 30th launch date for the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S4. Regardless of the reason behind the deal, a $100 price cut on the Apple iPhone 5 should result in some brisk business for the nation's largest carrier.
