Apple may have been hoping that news out of WWDC would help slow down some of the rampant iPhone 6 rumors, but it has actually been quite the opposite. Another rumor has arisen about Apple's upcoming iPhone release, this time about how they plan to sell them.
In order to prepare for the next round of iPhone sales, Apple is looking to move into prepaid and month-to-month plans. This means you could walk into an Apple store, purchase the phone at full price, and then connect with a prepaid or month-to-month carrier right in the store. Right now, iPhone customers can do this only by unlocking the device, then installing an existing SIM card or activating it at a third-party carrier.
