Simply select "Buy without a carrier" when purchasing the device from Apple's site, and you'll have a fully unlocked unit compatible with all networks in the United States - both GSM and CDMA.

Just over a month after the iPhone X debuted, Apple is now selling carrier-agnostic models of the iPhone X.

The prices are the same as what you'll pay from the carriers themselves: $999 for a 64GB model, and $1,149 for a 256GB one.

This option is ideal for business travelers who don't want to stick with a wireless carrier and who might want to pop in a SIM card from another carrier, such as an global one during a trip. The SIM-free iPhone sold on apple.com and at the Apple Store is unlocked. Those of you in Australia can get the same delivery date, again SIM-free, but the fact that the deal has now arrived in the United States as well is significant. The unlocked version has appeared on Apple's website, where it is listed alongside the existing carrier-centric versions.

According to 9to5Mac.com, Apple says it will deliver the SIM-free version of the iPhone X by December 12 - in line with other versions of the device. But in recent weeks, Apple's shipping estimates have come down to a week or so, and some people who pre-ordered got their iPhone X weeks ahead of schedule.
