SIM-Free iPhone 6s And iPhone 6s Plus Now Available Directly From Apple


Having sold the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus with a two-year contract and as an unlocked option, the Cupertino giant has today introduced a third option for buying its smartphone - SIM-free.

You Can Now Buy An Absolutely Commitment-Free iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus

Today, the Cupertino giant made available the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in the second wave of countries, and along with that, has revealed a new buying option for its flagship smartphones - SIM-free. This means that you can grab Cupertino's latest handset directly from Apple itself, without having to tie yourself to a carrier contract or any other sort of commitment. And since you are not making any sort of carrier commitment, therefore the SIM-free iPhone 6s will not come with a nano SIM card with it of any sort.

According to Apple regarding the SIM-free iPhone 6s:

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.

Just like an unlocked iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus smartphone, the SIM-free models carry the same price tags. They are as follows:

  • iPhone 6s 16GB - $650
  • iPhone 6s 64GB - $750
  • iPhone 6s 128GB - $850
  • iPhone 6s Plus 16GB - $750
  • iPhone 6s Plus 64GB - $850
  • iPhone 6s Plus 128GB - $950

If you don't mind breaking your bank in one fell swoop, then an SIM-free smartphone is a better option compared to the one that ties you to a carrier for a set amount of time. Besides, if you have a SIM-free smartphone at hand, you have the choice to use it on any carrier you like without worrying about any sort of restrictions. In other words, a SIM-free iPhone is the best thing to own if you're a frequent traveller and find yourself changing SIM cards a lot.
