Big news are on the way for Apple users! For those who have been wishing for a fully unlocked and SIM-free iPhone device, potential owners can expect this to be released in the United States starting tomorrow, January 6, 2015. Based on reports by a number of sources, Apple is preparing to release fully unlocked and SIM-free iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models in the country. These models will be available on both Apple’s retail store and from their online store.
Before the announcement of the release of this iPhone 6 version, Apple only sold the two models as either part of a carrier contract or with an unlocked option from T-Mobile. Now that they are about to release no SIM-card versions of their latest iPhone models, loyal Apple customers have expressed gratitude for giving them an option to purchase an unlocked device.
While these iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models continue to share the same features as the models currently available, the unlocked and SIM-free version will enable users to enjoy using their phone from anywhere in the world. They do not have to feel restricted with using just a specific carrier since they now have an option to bring along their SIM card wherever they go.
In the past, Apple made SIM-free models of their iPhone devices available in stores located from other countries. Along with tomorrow’s launch, it would be the first time that customers from the United States can enjoy an officially unlocked and SIM-free iPhone device. This gives their customers the freedom to choose any carrier and even be free of contracts.
Currently, T-Mobile offers an unlocked option for both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. This offer does not lock the device with a contract and may still function with a SIM card from another carrier. With tomorrow’s launch, Apple will be giving their users free reign on how they can use their iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. By making SIM-free models available in the country, Apple is truly giving everyone a chance to own an iPhone they can be proud of.
The prices of these unlocked and SIM-free iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models will remain the same as the ones offered by T-Mobile. This means that the iPhone 6 will be sold from $649 to $849, depending on the chosen storage capacity. Meanwhile, the iPhone 6 Plus will start selling at $749 to $949. Storage options for each model differ from 16 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB.
