As expected, Apple has started selling unlocked, SIM-free versions of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on its U.S. online store.
The unlocked, SIM-free versions cost the same as the unsubsidized iPhone models. So the 16GB, 64GB and 128GB iPhone 6 models cost $649, $749 and $849 respectively. Similarly, the 16GB, 64GB and 128GB iPhone 6 Plus models cost $749, $849 and $949 respectively.
When the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models went on sale in the U.S. in September, the only unlocked iPhone option came with the T-Mobile SIM in the box, or one had to buy an iPhone with a carrier contract bundled with the device.
There has been a significant delay in selling the unlocked, SIM free versions of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in the U.S., as Apple usually launches the unlocked version of the new iPhones in November. It probably indicates that Apple is still struggling to keep up with the demand for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
All the unlocked, SIM-free versions of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models are ready to ship in 3-5 business days.
If you have been waiting for the unlocked, SIM-free versions of the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, then head over to Apple’s online store now.
