Apple now selling iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus SIM-free in the U.S.

Apple is now selling the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus SIM-free in the United States. The move allows fans who already have an existing contract to pick up the Cupertino company’s newest handsets without committing to a new plan.

Some customers in other countries have been able to purchase the iPhone 7 series SIM-free since day one, but in the U.S., Apple makes us wait a little longer for unlocked models. Fortunately, the wait is now over… kind of.

SIM-free versions of both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in all colors and storage capacities can now be ordered from the Apple Online Store. Prices start at $649 for a 32GB iPhone 7, and $769 for a 32GB iPhone 7 Plus.

Don’t assume this means Apple has caught up with iPhone 7 demand, though. There’s still a lengthy wait for most models in all colors; those hoping to get a jet black iPhone 7 Plus — one of the most popular options this year — won’t see it ship for up to 8 weeks.

When you buy the iPhone SIM-free, you have the option to use it with almost any carrier — not only in the U.S., but in other countries, too. Simply pop in your existing nano SIM when it arrives and you’re good to go.
