A free iPhone 5s is available in a huge deal. Consumers can get a 16GB iPhone 5s for zero dollars, according to an April 19 report in Mobile & Apps. The price tag for the iPhone 5s, with a two-year contract is usually $199.00.
The iPhone 5s is Apple's flagship iPhone, jam-packed with features like a 64-bit desktop-class processor, M7 motion co-processor, 1 GB of RAM and fingerprint sensor for security. The iPhone 5s also boasts an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a front camera for “FaceTime” video calls—plus lots more.
Consumers can get the iPhone 5s for free at Radio Shack. Currently, Radio Shack is selling the $199.00 iPhone 5s for just $99.99. But consumers can get the iPhone 5s for free by trading their old iPhone 4s.
Consumers can also get this $199.00 iPhone 5s for only $25.00 if they trade in their old Samsung Galaxy S III. The iPhone 4s or Samsung Galaxy S III must be working, with a screen that can be scratched—but not cracked.
Whether consumers take advantage of this free iPhone 5s deal by trading in their old iPhone 4, or pay $25.00 for the iPhone 5s by trading in their old Galaxy S III, or pay $99.00 without trading any phone in, this is a great deal. This deal gives consumers one of the lowest—if not the lowest—price for the iPhone 5 since the launch of iPhone 5s.
Introduced in September, the iPhone 5s comes in gold, silver or space gray—with gold being the most popular consumer choice. Previous iPhone versions came in either black or white.
The fact that this deal is being offered on the iPhone 5s suggests that Apple is getting closer to releasing the iPhone 6. Retailers usually slash prices to start reducing inventory before a new product launch and indications point to the iPhone 6 September launch. If this rumored launch time line is correct, consumers should begin to see a lot more iPhone 5s deals like this one at Radio Shack, (although whether they offer the iPhone 5s for free like this deal does is another question).
The iPhone 6 is rumored to come in two versions, one version with a 4.7-inch display and the other version with a 5.5-inch display. Like the current iPhone 5s, it will have the 64-bit processor (the A8), a fingerprint sensor, a co-processor (perhaps called the M8) and will be thinner and lighter.
