Starting with September 21st, wireless carrier Sprint will focus on selling Apple’s latest iPhone models, namely iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, and less on the marketing of the older iPhone 4.
With iPhone 5
set to become available at $199 on contract and with iPhone 4S expected to be sold at $99, the older model will drop to $0 on contract on select carriers, Apple announced last week.
A leaked document from Sprint (via 9to5mac
) shows that the company will focus its marketing efforts on the newer models, though it also mentions the $100 price drop Apple announced for it.
The document also shows that Sprint’s retail locations are about to receive launch materials for the iPhone 5
, and that new price strips will also be made available for the iPhone 4S.
Most probably, the carrier will continue selling the free iPhone 4, though it’s unclear for how long.
