The first of the new iPhones are now available in Canada and wireless companies have released their pricing. 

With a two-year contract at Bell and Rogers, the iPhone 8 will cost $229 Cdn or $429 depending on the memory size. The iPhone 8 Plus starts at $359 for 64 GB and goes up to $559 with 256 GB. Telus's prices are $1 higher with a two-year contract. 

Without a contract, an iPhone 8 starts at $929. The 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus starts at $1,059. 

So far, Rogers is the only company that has released prices for Apple's 10th anniversary iPhone X, which will be available for preorder in Canada on Oct. 27. 

On its own, the iPhone X starts at $1,319 but costs $599 and up with a two-year contract at Rogers. 

The iPhone 8 promises to shoot pictures with better colours and less distortion, particularly in low-light settings. The display will adapt to ambient lighting, similar to a feature in some iPad Pro models. Speakers will be louder and offer deeper bass.

Some of the many features of the iPhone X include a higher-resolution screen and "OLED" technology for richer colours. It will also lose a distinct home button to make more room for a 5.8-inch display.
