Wal-Mart said it will sell the newest suite of Apple iPhones below the recommended price.

The retailer will offer the 16-gigabyte iPhone 6 for $179—when purchased with a two-year Verizon, AT&T or Sprint mobile contract—down from Apple's $199 price.

The bigger iPhone 6 Plus will cost $279 on a two-year contract, compared with the $299 Apple recommends, Wal-Mart said.
