Apple (AAPL) Stores around the country will now match Sprint’s sales price on the iPhone 4S, according to a recent report. Earlier this week, Sprint slashed the cost of buying a new iPhone 4S under contract by $86. The deep discount includes $50 off the retail price of an iPhone and a waived $36 activation fee. Now, according to a purported screenshot of Apple’s internal system published by MacRumors, Apple Stores have been given the go-ahead to match Sprint’s discounted price when approached by customers and asked to do so. The discount can only be given in stores according to the report, and it drops the price of a 16GB iPhone 4S to $149.99 while the 32GB model will cost $249.99 and the 64GB version will cost $349.99.
