Apple now offers unlocked iPhone X models in the United States ars_ab.settitle(1227285)

There's no doubt the iPhone X is an attractive slab of a gadget but with all that complicated tech to fit together, and a later launch than this year's other iPhones, rumors have persisted that Apple has been struggling to make enough of the flagship handsets to keep up with demand.

United States customers can place orders on Apple's website for SIM-free iPhone Xs, rather than ordering a device that's already married to a specific carrier. The new option, listed under SIM-free, let's you purchase the iPhone X unlocked, meaning you can freely bring it to any carrier or use it with a prepaid SIM card.

As you probably know, until now, your only option (on Apple's website) was to buy the smartphone with a SIM card from one of the four major USA carriers: T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint. Now, if you happen to swap cell networks a lot on the go, or switch frequently between iOS and Android, the SIM-free version is the most hassle-free version of the iPhone X you can buy and probably what you'll want.

Price Target Analysis of Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (NASDAQ:FOXA)

The threat of backorders and shipping delays have dogged the iPhone X since before the phone even launched.

The iPhone X SIM-free version is priced at $999 for the 64GB model and $1,149 for the 256GB model. Apple now says it can ship both models in 5 business days. As long as you are able to pay their full price up front, you will be able to become the proud owner of the iPhone X. Tell us your thoughts down in the comments.
