The SIM-free variant allows interested customers to buy an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus without any carrier contract commitment or financing, and is not locked to any particular network as well. Apple also notes in its website that the SIM-free iPhones do not come with a nano-SIM, and that customers are free to use the phone with any carrier from around the world, including AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile.
The SIM-free iPhone comes without a wireless contract commitment or carrier financing. It doesn’t come with a nano-SIM card for iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, or iPhone 5s. 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.
It also means that customers will have to pay in full for the SIM-free iPhones and cannot available any financing options.
SIM-free iPhone 6s carriers the model number A1633, while the iPhone 6s Plus is labeled as A1634.
Apple has been selling unlocked iPhones right from September 25 — the day when the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus went on sale in the United States — but this is the first time that it has started selling SIM-free variants of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s sale went on sale in 36 countries today, including Italy, Austria, Finland, and Greece, and will go on four more tomorrow.[Via MacRumors]
