Nothing has been released yet by any carrier but they will likely be released as they did IPhone 5S and 6 and 6plus. Apple usually releases them closer to end of September but has the keynote on the 9th.

I'm more curious what will be the best way to get a phone from MTS. Is stock going to be allocated to the online upgrade system or stores first?

If I was one of the owners of a MTS select store I would not be happy if MTS kept most of the new phones for the MTS online system.

I am sure they will be allocated to both retail channels, but would not be surprised if MTS does not get a large initial supply compared to Bell, Rogers and Telus.

With iPhone 6s and 6s Plus pre-orders starts for most Canadian carriers on Saturday is there any confirmation if they will be available through MTS?

Do you know what carriers are allowing Pre orders? 

I don't see anything on the Rogers and Bell websites that say they are starting to accept them.  Telus has started collecting names and emails of interested customers wanting to get the phone. But there is zero online material saying pre-orders have started.

I did find this news article (http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/news/canada-iphone-6s-preorder/) which states the expected Canadian pricing and launch date which is Sept 25/15 for all major Canadian Telco's.

Below shows some good news for MTS customers wanting the new phones as well!
 "Apple’s press release states Rogers, Bell, Telus, MTS and Sasktel will sell these right out of the gates on contract."

I guess I'll add some hindsight info to this for future reference.

A pre-order website was put up Sept 12, 2015 for MTS customers, right on Apple's timeline. Although on contract phone prices were not known till several days later when published in a news release.

MTS had the iPhone 6s/Plus available on the launch day of Sept 25, 2015.

It seemed that the pre-order system was the best way to obtain a phone.

I can't find the pre-order information anymore, but basically it is a $0 down short term hold (2 days for iPhone) to pick up and purchase the phone at a retail outage of your choosing. It can be cancelled without penalty. Only 1 device at a time I believe.

Likely one device per established wireless line, meaning if you have three wireless lines on your account you could reserve up to three iPhones.
