1st and 2nd gen iPhone models coming to the United States and Canada on October 19th are expected to be unlocked for purchase, according to a new report.
The reports claim the unlocked phones will feature the same camera hardware as the first two generations of iPhones, with a 3-inch, 480 x 960 screen.
Both the 5s’s camera and 6S’ 6-megapixel front-facing camera will also be unlocked.
If the reports are true, it would be the first time Apple has unlocked a phone in more than a decade.
Earlier this year, a report suggested the iPhone 5c would be unlocked at some point during the first half of 2018.
The iPhone 5S would also be one of the first phones to be made available with the company’s new Face ID facial recognition system, which works by unlocking the phone with the tip of the finger.
The next generation of iPhones are expected in limited quantities, though there are a few options that are rumored to be in the pipeline.
According to a report by Bloomberg, a new smartphone could be released in the coming weeks, though it’s unclear if it will be the Apple iPhone 6 or 6 Plus.
The report said that Apple could release a 5s or 6s variant in the next few months, but that the phone won’t have a 5-inch display.
Apple previously announced the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6c would ship in 2018, though that was just a preview, and it’s not clear whether the devices will be released at that time.
While Apple is currently selling unlocked iPhones, it hasn’t released details on what models are on the way.
In the meantime, you can find a list of iPhone 5 and 6 models available right here on TNW.
Apple is also expected to introduce new iPhones in 2018.
According to The Next Microsoft , the company will unveil a new version of the iPad at a later date.
The company is also rumored to unveil new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models later this year.
The device is expected to feature a 5.5-inch screen, a 3:2 aspect ratio, and a dual-camera setup.
