AppleInsider:

As explained on Apple’s iPhone 6s purchase page, SIM-free iPhones do not include the usual carrier-specific nano-SIM card, nor are they locked in to any one network, meaning customers are free to obtain their own card from a carrier of their choosing. SIM-free iPhone 6s models are designated A1633, while iPhone 6s Plus versions are labeled A1634.

SIM-free iPhone 6s/6s Plus handsets will work on a number of wireless networks, including Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile in the U.S., as well as a number of international networks.

While customers can activate SIM-free iPhones on any compatible GSM or CDMA network, they are not eligible for carrier subsidies, and the full price of the handset must be paid upfront.
