This option is ideal for business travelers who don't want to stick with a wireless carrier and who might want to pop in a SIM card from another carrier, such as an global one during a trip.

The addition of this new iPhone X purchase option suggests that Apple has more supply of the iPhone X than earlier feared.


X The upshot is that with an e-SIM, consumers can shop for the best wireless data plan and switch service providers instantly, without visiting retail stores. The tiny SIM cards are often found under a smartphone's battery. If you're not interested in getting the unlocked version, you can also order iPhone X models for Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. Apple offers its own iPhone upgrade program as do the wireless firms. The unlocked version will let you do that.

Apple is now selling the iPhone X SIM-free and unlocked in the United States. "Your iPhone will only be tied to your carrier if you choose carrier financing".


The unlocked iPhone X is listed as an option online, and you'll receive it within five business days as well, regardless of what color option or storage model you decide to pick up. Those of you in Australia can get the same delivery date, again SIM-free, but the fact that the deal has now arrived in the U.S. as well is significant.
