Earlier today we reported that the iPhone 5 is now in stock on Apple's website and that the waiting times for online orders have improved. However, it seems Apple also has plans to start selling an unlocked version of the iPhone 5.
9to5Mac cites sources that say Apple will begin selling the unlocked iPhone 5 via its online stores as early as 9pm tonight. Pricing is said to be $649, $749, and $849 for the 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB models, respectively. If you're not big into online shopping, these sources apparently said that this unlocked iPhone 5 will also be hitting retail stores, though the release date is not yet known.
Apple currently sells the iPhone 5 on contract through AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. Customers have a choice between 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB models, which are priced at $199, $299, and $399, respectively.
