SIM-Free iPhone XR Now Available To Purchase In The US

Those individuals interested in Apple’s affordable iPhone XR in the United States can now purchase the handset directly from Apple on a SIM-free and unlocked basis. This availability means that there is no carrier obligation when purchasing, leaving the consumer to pick a SIM from whomever they like.

In most parts of Europe, consumers expect to be able to purchase a brand new device like iPhone XR on a SIM-free basis.

A consumer generally has the option of purchasing the device SIM-free, purchasing the hardware through Apple with a plan from a carefully selected carrier, or dealing directly with the carrier and opting to take out a minimum-term wireless plan that locks the device to that network and commits the customer to a minimum monthly amount in exchange for a talk, text, and data allowance. This isn’t always the case in the United States.

After initially launching as part of a purchasing system that meant customers had to choose a network, Apple has now extended the sale options for iPhone XR meaning that a carrier no longer needs to be chosen and the consumer can opt to purchase the hardware outright starting from $749.00.

This is actually standard practice in the United States with SIM-free models typically debuting in the country weeks or months after the hardware goes live in the first instance. This means that those who are happily taking a carrier plan can opt for the first purchase and those who want a SIM-free option can wait a little longer.

Those who are purchasing a SIM-free iPhone XR will be able to take SIM cards from carriers like AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and a whole host of other smaller carriers in the country who offers these types of services.

As previously mentioned, parting with $749.00 will get you the entry-level 64GB iPhone XR model in one of the many gorgeous and vivid colors, including (PRODUCT)RED. If you want to spend a little more, then $799.00 will get you the 128GB model or $899.00 will get you the all-singing-all-dancing 256GB iPhone XR with its gorgeous exterior and Liquid Retina display.

If you have been putting off the purchase while you wait for the SIM-free option then you need to wait no more, good people!
