Walmart is breaking out the price hatchet and aiming it at some of Apple’s most popular products in an effort to attract holiday shoppers looking for a last-minute deal. The retailer announced it will be carrying a handful of Apple mobile devices, including the recently released iPhone 5, at reduced prices. The 16GB iPhone 5, normally $189, will be available with a two-year contract for $127. Apple retail locations sell the phone for $199. Walmart also is discounting older Apple products, offering the iPhone 4S for $47, about a $50 markdown.
