Apple will reportedly begin selling fully unlocked, SIM-free models of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in their U.S. stores tomorrow, January 6th. The unlocked iPhones will be available both online and in Apple’s bricks-and-mortal retail locations.
Currently, Apple sells the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in the U.S. either via a carrier contract or unlocked on T-Mobile. Tomorrow’s change means that Apple will sell the latest iPhone models with no SIM-card so that customers can use the phone anywhere in the world on any supported carrier by bringing along their own SIM-card.
Pricing for the fully unlocked models will be the same as an unlocked T-Mobile device of the same type. Pricing will begin at $649, and will go all the way up to $949, depending on screen size and storage option.
