    Will be purchasing one for my daughter who lives in Canada, do they all come unlocked or will I specifically need to purchase her an unlocked one?

    If you buy it now, from Apple, it’ll be unlocked.
    If you buy it on or after Dec. 1st, even from any Canadian carrier, it’ll be unlocked.

    All phones purchased from Apple come with a purchase unlocked option.

    Wait, How come I don’t see the “unlocked” option when trying to purchase an iPX on apple.com? I only see specific carriers options, comoared to iP8 where I see the unlocked option next to the carriers...what am I missing?

    Here in Canada all iPhones purchased at an Apple store are unlocked however it would probably be cheaper to purchase one there and ship it across and it should work fine here with a sim from Rogers,Bell,etc. and they will know at the Apple store that you purchase from for sure .

    The X comes unlocked from Apple with a nano-sim of your preferred carrier, unlike the iPhone 8.

    The 8 and 8 Plus is no different.

    I guess he meant that the 8 has a “sim-free” option, unlike the x.

    But yeah I see now that they all come unlocked regardless of the carrier. Thanks
