MTS to Offer iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus in Canada on September 19

WINNIPEG, Sept. 15, 2014 /CNW/ -  MTS today announced it will offer iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the biggest advancements in iPhone history, beginning on Friday, September 19 at MTS Connect retail locations across Manitoba. iPhone 6 will be available starting at CA$265 for the 16GB model and iPhone 6 Plus will be available starting at CA$375 for the 16GB model. Customers can pre-order both models today by visiting a MTS Connect store. MTS will allow iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus customers to connect to its 4G LTE wireless network which reaches nearly 75 percent of Manitobans.

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the biggest advancements in iPhone history, featuring two new models with stunning 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Retina HD displays, and packed with innovative technologies in an all-new dramatically thin and seamless design that is still comfortable to hold and easy to use. Both models are better in every way and include: the Apple-designed A8 chip with second generation 64-bit desktop-class architecture for blazing fast performance and power efficiency; advanced iSight and FaceTime HD cameras; and ultrafast wireless technologies.

The new iPhones include iOS 8, the biggest release since the App Store, featuring a simpler, faster and more intuitive user experience with new Messages and Photos features, predictive typing for Apple's QuickType keyboard and Family Sharing. iOS 8 also includes the new Health app, giving you a clear overview of your health and fitness data and iCloud Drive, so you can store files and access them from anywhere.

"MTS is delighted to add the amazing iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to our extensive wireless line-up," said MTS President Kelvin Shepherd. "We are very pleased to offer the new iPhones with a range of attractive data plans that allow our customers to connect to our 4G LTE network with speeds of up to 150 Mbps. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus customers will also be able to take advantage of free access to all MTS Wi-Fi Hotspots so they can enjoy the incredible features to the fullest."
