Best Buy is once again expanding its inventory of Apple products. The company says it will start selling unlocked bases starting today, albeit now only select models are available.
Best Buy previously only sold unlocked, unopened iPhones via carrier partnerships. This implies that the store would only sell you an iPhone that was locked to a certain network and could only be activated by using that service provider’s SIM card. If you want an iPhone that’s compatible with any network, you’ll have to buy it through Apple or another authorised reseller.
However, at this time, Best Buy is selling factory-fresh iPhone models that are unlocked and compatible with any service provider. According to Joe Rossignol, the available iPhone models include the 12, 13 mini, 13, and SE. The newest iPhone 14 models aren’t supported and may only be purchased via network providers.
The ability to use the iPhone with any network and transfer carriers at any time is just one of the numerous benefits of buying an unlocked model. You are also not restricted by any kind of agreement and may sell the item anytime you choose.
