Yes, almost all iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max models purchased from Apple are unlocked. Unlocked iPhones may come with a removable SIM card preinstalled, but they are not bound to a specific wireless network or carrier.

One significant exception is the AT&T Next program. iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Max models purchased via AT&T Next are locked to AT&T Mobility.

Buy an unlocked iPhone with any of these methods:
  • Pick any carrier and buy with a one-time payment
  • Pick any carrier and choose Apple iPhone Payments (Apple's installment plan)
  • Pick any carrier and join the Apple iPhone Upgrade Program
  • Pick a SIM-free iPhone, with no carrier SIM card pre-installed whatsoever

iPhone owners using any of the payment methods above can switch between wireless networks without having to first unlock their devices. Check with your wireless carrier for details.
