Apple releases unlocked version of iPhone 5

Monday 3 December 2012 | 10:16 CET | News
Apple has begun selling an unlocked version of the iPhone 5 on its website, offering the smartphone without carrier subsidies for the first time, according to the Washington Post. The company had said it would sell a model iPhone 5 that is not tied to a specific network within a few months of its September launch. Apple also sells unlocked versions of the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4. As with other unlocked iPhones from Apple, the device works only with supported GSM networks, meaning it will not work with Verizon or Sprint. Without the subsidy, the iPhone 5 is available for USD 649 for the 16 GB
