iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c on tap for Virgin Mobile starting October 1

The iPhone 5s and 5c are flying off the retail shelves, and soon they'll be expanding their reach. Yesterday we reported that smaller regional carriers would start selling the new iPhones on October 1. Today Virgin Mobile has announced it will get in on the action starting October 1 as well, via two posts on Twitter.

While the expansion of the iPhone 5s and 5c to other carriers is good news for Apple, it is sure to put even further strain on the already tight supply of the popular handsets.
