iPhone 5

iPhone 5AT&T is offering a discount to customers who want to get a new iPhone before their contracts are up. When AT&T customers head over to their accounts on Monday, they’ll find the option to upgrade to an iPhone for a discount. On the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB iPhone models, customers will receive $200 off the unsubsidized price. On the 16GB option, for example, customers who would normally pay $650 for an unsubsidized iPhone 5 can now pay $450. The 32GB and 64GB models are more expensive by $100 and $200, respectively. It’s not clear why AT&T is offering the reduced pricing, but it could be an attempt to keep customers buying iPhones as anticipation grows for the iPhone 5S.
