Apple Adds Unlocked iPhone X to Apple Store

Apple is now selling versions of the high-end iPhone X that have no traditional subscriber identity module, or SIM, card and is instead using an embedded electronic version of the device.

The prices are the same as what you'll pay from the carriers themselves: $999 for a 64GB model, and $1,149 for a 256GB one.

The iPhone X, which Apple officially pronounces as "iPhone 10", includes an all-new 5.8-inch OLED Super Retina display, a new A11 Bionic processor, Face ID facial recognition, wireless charging capabilities and an improved main rear TrueDepth camera. USA customers can place orders on Apple's website for SIM-free iPhone Xs, rather than ordering a device that's already married to a specific carrier.

If you're looking to order the iPhone X from Apple's website, you'll have the option to buy either a GSM or CDMA version of the phone.

Apple iPhone X production has stabilized more than a month after the flagship smartphone was initially made available to customers.

"SIM-free" means your iPhone doesn't ship with a carrier SIM card.

Now, wireless customers who prefer to stay off-contract or avoid one of the four major carriers can get in on the fun too, as Apple has just launched a SIM-free version of the iPhone X. You can, however, pick one up in Apple's retail stores today. If you choose this option, the device will arrive SIM-free, and you'll be able to activate it with any carrier that supports the iPhone. Interested customers who place an order for the iPhone X now should get it in a week, on December 12.
