Apple starts selling unlocked, SIM-free iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus


It's been almost a full month since Apple started selling its new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in the United States and all big Western European markets, and the popular phones are now available across the globe. Up until now, though, you could only buy them via one of the four major carriers in the United States.

This changes today as Apple officially starts sale of the unlocked, SIM-free version of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus via the Apple Store.

Prices remain the same: starting from $650 for the 32GB iPhone 7 and $770 for the 32 gig iPhone 7 Plus.

However, if you pin your hopes on this unlocked version to finally get your hand on the elusive Jet Black model, we have some bad news. The unlocked Jet Black iPhone 7 and 7 Plus remain extremely limited in supply, and waiting times for the shiny new iPhone trim range from 3 to 5 weeks for the 7 model, and a whopping 6 to 8 weeks for the 7 Plus version.

While all other colors for the iPhone 7 ship immediately, the iPhone 7 Plus seems to be in much shorter supply: the shipping times for all other colors than Jet Black for the 7 Plus reach 3 to 4 weeks.
