Currently, Apple sells the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in the U.S. either via a carrier contract or unlocked on T-Mobile. Tomorrow’s change means that Apple will sell the latest iPhone models with no SIM-card so that customers can use the phone anywhere in the world on any supported carrier by bringing along their own SIM-card.
The pricing will be the same as an unlocked T-Mobile iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, starting at $649 and going all the way up to $949 depending on screen size and choice of storage space. Apple started selling unlocked iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s models approximately two months following the initial launches in 2012 and 2013, so Apple is running a little behind the pattern this year.
