One of the hottest gadgets to hit the market lately — the Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus — will be in Saskatchewan stores starting on Friday.

Apple unveiled the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last week. 

SaskTel says it will stock the phone starting Sept. 19.      

The company says the new models have bigger screens, are thinner, faster and have longer battery life. 

With a two-year contract, a low-end iPhone 6 with 16G of memory goes for $264.99. At the high end, the iPhone 6 Plus with 128G of memory sells for $594.99 (two-year contract).
