Apple has authorized Apple Stores to price-match other retailers' discounts on the iPhone 4S, according to a report.
The discounts are limited to $49.01, but appear to apply to all versions of the iPhone 4S, in black and white versions.
An image posted online by MacRumors shows a graphic that says Apple Stores can match discounts from Target and Sprint for the 8-gigabyte device. The stores can also match discounts for 16-GB and 32-GB models from Sprint.
Not all details are known about this new price-match program, but at first glance, it appears the biggest beneficiaries are people looking for a 16-GB or 32-GB iPhone 4S for AT&T or Verizon's networks.
