Preorders must be made at Walmart retail stores
Walmart will be selling both the iPhone 5s and 5c at a discount from day one, the US retailer has announced. The 16GB 5c will sell for $79 on a two-year contract, whereas the 5s will be $189. Normally the phones would be $99 and $199.
The 5c pricing will take effect tomorrow, when Walmart and other vendors are set to open up preorders. Unlike other avenues, though, going with Walmart will require signing up at one of the company's retail outlets. Those orders must be picked up by September 25th. As elsewhere, there will be no preorders for the iPhone 5s.
