Apple Is Now Selling an Unlocked iPhone X

Just over a month after the iPhone X debuted, Apple is now selling carrier-agnostic models of the iPhone X. Yet even despite the rumored shortages of face-scanning camera tech and OLED displays, Apple has done an admirable job of getting stock back on track after the initial few weeks. U.S. customers can place orders on Apple's website for SIM-free iPhone Xs, rather than ordering a device that's already married to a specific carrier. If you choose this option, the device will arrive SIM-free, and you'll be able to activate it with any carrier that supports the iPhone. Offered in Silver or Space Gray, the bezel-less Apple phone costs $999 for the 64GB version and $1,149 for the 256 GB one.

Apple iPhone X now available unlocked and SIM-free

As with previous generation iPhones, the SIM-free version of the iPhone X is compatible with both CDMA and GSM networks. Both versions are now listed on Apple's website as delivered on December 12. That means you're free to use a SIM card from any carrier that provides service for iPhone. Both capacities are listed as being available for pickup at an Apple Store today. The new option, available from Apple's online store in the U.S., allows customers to buy an iPhone X without having to commit to or otherwise have an account with one of the nation's top carriers (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint or T-Mobile).
