More Proof the Apple iPhone 6 Is on the Way

As far as potential catalysts for tech giant Apple  (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) go, it's the iPhone 6 and then everything else.

Not that Apple doesn't have plenty of other growth drivers that should help power Apple shares higher in the months and years ahead. More accurately said, Apple's iPhone 6 opportunity is simply so immense that its positive impact on Apple remains simply tremendous. And thankfully for Apple investors, they recently received yet another sign that the iPhone 6 has gone into production, courtesy of retail behemoth Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT  ) .

Wal-Mart sends iPhone prices sinking
Announced late last month, Wal-Mart is slashing prices for both of Apple's most recent smartphones -- the iPhone 5s and 5c. This tactic isn't particularly abnormal for Wal-Mart, as the company has reduced the pricing on Apple's smartphones for promotional periods such as the holiday season in the past. However, according to Wal-Mart, these recent pricing changes are here to stay.

The implication?

Although it's no sure thing, it appears that Wal-Mart is now dead set on clearing its channel inventory of Apple's most current iPhones ahead of the launch of the iPhone 6 later this year, especially taken in tandem with other reports claiming Apple's iPhone has entered production with its East Asian manufacturing partners. In the following video, tech and telecom specialist Andrew Tonner discusses Wal-Mart's recent moves and what they mean for Apple investors.

This tiny stock is set to soar with Apple's iWatch boom
Apple recently recruited a secret-development "dream team" to guarantee that its newest smart device was kept hidden from the public for as long as possible. But the secret is out, and some early viewers are even claiming that its everyday impact could trump the iPod, iPhone, and the iPad. In fact, ABI Research predicts that 485 million of these devices will be sold per year. But one small company makes this gadget possible. And its stock price has nearly unlimited room to run for early in-the-know investors. To be one of them, and to see Apple's newest smart gizmo, just click here!
