Apple Starts Selling SIM-Free iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in US

Heads up to those of you who have been waiting for SIM-free iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models to come available. You can now buy the unlocked handsets on Apple’s website, starting at $650 and $770, respectively.

 Previously you were forced to buy an iPhone 7 tied to a carrier. These new models will work with any carrier in the United States including CDMA networks like Sprint and Verizon. They are also ”world phones” which means you can use them in over 200 different countries across the world. This makes them similar to the variants sold by Verizon and Sprint in the US, which means the handsets come with a Qualcomm modem. The AT&T and T-Mobile variants of the iPhone 7 do not support CDMA network likely because they use an Intel modem.

Right now, the only way to purchase a SIM-free iPhone 7 directly from Apple is to use the company’s online store. Retail Apple Stores have not yet started selling SIM-free iPhone 7 units, though once the supply improves, they should start selling them as well.

From Apple’s website:
The SIM-free iPhone comes without a wireless contract commitment or carrier financing. It doesn’t come with a nano-SIM card. And because it’s unlocked, it isn’t tied to one carrier, so you can get a nano-SIM from any supported carrier worldwide, such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, or Sprint in the United States.
