The SIM-free version of both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are available for order online, but all models are listed as having a shipping delay.

They aren't available for pick up in-store, though availability is expected once Apple receives more supply.

iPhone 7 unlocked pricing:

  • 32GB - $649
  • 128GB - $749
  • 256GB - $849

iPhone 7 Plus unlocked pricing:

  • 32GB - $769
  • 128GB - $869

With an unlocked iPhone, there's no contract or commitment. Customers can take the unlocked smartphones to any carrier as long as the bands are supported, which Apple detailed on its website.
