Apple has started selling an unlocked iPhone X from its online store

Apple has started selling an unlocked iPhone X from its online store

Prior to Monday evening, customers had to choose a wireless carrier in the USA, buying the phone with an AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile or Verizon SIM.

That means these unlocked phones can be purchased at full price and activated with a carrier at a later time. That means you're free to use a SIM card from any carrier that provides service for iPhone.

If you completed the carrier activation steps for AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon when you purchased your new iPhone online, it will arrive ready to use.




According to 9to5Mac.com, Apple says it will deliver the SIM-free version of the iPhone X by December 12 - in line with other versions of the device. Carriers offer the option to pay the price of the smartphone in monthly installments, but those options aren't available when you buy a SIM-free iPhone X. However, Apple does offer its 24-month special financing program for specific credit card customers. The option also exists to pick up the phone from your local Apple Store, assuming there is one nearby. This version gives the freedom of activating the phone at any local or global carrier by simply getting a SIM card from your desired operator.

Shortly after the iPhone X went up for pre-order, shipping estimates from Apple slipped from days to weeks, sometimes as long as 5-6 weeks after order.
