Frequently Asked Questions

  • All iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models are 5G capable. For 5G access, you need to activate your iPhone with a carrier that offers 5G service. Some carriers may also require a 5G service plan or a new SIM. Contact your carrier for more information. To learn more, visit https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204039.
  • AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon are the national wireless carriers for iPhone in the United States, and they all offer 5G service. Apple.com and the Apple Store sell iPhone models for use on these networks.

  • “SIM-free” means your iPhone doesn’t ship with a carrier nano-SIM. The SIM-free iPhone sold on apple.com and at the Apple Store is unlocked. That means you can use a nano-SIM or eSIM from any carrier that provides service for iPhone.*

    * Use of eSIM requires a wireless service plan (which may include restrictions on switching service providers and roaming, even after contract expiration). Not all carriers support eSIM. Use of eSIM in iPhone may be disabled when purchased from some carriers. See your carrier for details. To learn more, visit https://support.apple.com/kb/HT209044.
  • eSIM technology allows you to add a cellular plan to your iPhone, without using a physical SIM card. Carrier-connected iPhone SE, iPhone 13, and iPhone 13 Pro models will arrive ready to activate with eSIM. You will need a Wi-Fi connection for setup.

    If you choose to connect to a carrier after you buy your iPhone, you will need to contact your carrier to activate with an eSIM.*

    * Use of eSIM requires a wireless service plan (which may include restrictions on switching service providers and roaming, even after contract expiration). Not all carriers support eSIM. Use of eSIM in iPhone may be disabled when purchased from some carriers. See your carrier for details. To learn more, visit https://support.apple.com/kb/HT209044.
  • Carrier-connected models of iPhone purchased from Apple come with a physical nano-SIM, which will be used to activate your wireless account. To activate the eSIM on your new iPhone, please contact your carrier once you receive it.*

    * Use of eSIM requires a wireless service plan (which may include restrictions on switching service providers and roaming, even after contract expiration). Not all carriers support eSIM. Use of eSIM in iPhone may be disabled when purchased from some carriers. See your carrier for details. To learn more, visit https://support.apple.com/kb/HT209044.
  • The iPhone models for AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon are the same. If you choose to pay with an AT&T Installment Plan, your iPhone will be locked to the carrier. For details on network support, please see support.apple.com/en-us/HT204039.
  • If you completed the steps to authorize activation with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon when you purchased your new iPhone online, it will arrive ready to use. Just turn it on and follow the onscreen instructions to set it up and activate with the carrier. If you chose to skip carrier authorization at the time of purchase, you’ll need to contact your carrier or visit an Apple Store to enable cellular services.

    You can also set up your iPhone without a nano-SIM using Wi-Fi. You will need an active nano-SIM to enable cellular services. If you selected the SIM-free iPhone, you’ll need to insert your own nano-SIM card or obtain one from the supported carrier of your choice and activate it in order to use cellular services on your iPhone. If Sprint is your carrier, you’ll need to get a new nano-SIM card in order to activate your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro.

  • All iPhone models sold on apple.com and at the Apple Store are unlocked, which means they aren’t tied to a single carrier, and you can use a SIM from the carrier of your choosing. The exception is when you buy an iPhone with an AT&T Installment Plan. It will be locked to AT&T as the carrier and will only work on the AT&T network for the term of your Installment Plan agreement.

  • When you choose Apple Card Monthly Installments at checkout, you pay for the iPhone over time and interest-free◊◊ with Apple Card, and you’ll receive 3% Daily Cash back up front. The cost of your iPhone is spread over 24 months. You can add a trade-in to make your payments even lower.

    To purchase with Apple Card Monthly Installments, select it as your monthly payment method when you buy your new iPhone.

    Customers in U.S. Territories should contact Goldman Sachs Bank USA for questions about installments.

  • Apple Trade In makes it easy to get credit towards the purchase of your next iPhone. Simply answer a few questions about your device. Based on what you tell us, we’ll provide an estimated trade-in value. If you pay monthly, we’ll apply the value as instant credit to lower the monthly payments of your new iPhone. If you pay in full, we’ll credit your payment method after we receive your trade-in. If it’s not eligible for credit, you can recycle it for free.

    Once you receive the trade-in kit, you have 14 days to prepare and send in your device. If you added a trade-in to an iPhone order, you may receive the kit along with your new device. Otherwise, it will be mailed to you separately as soon as your new product is ready for delivery or pickup. When we receive your trade-in, we’ll verify its condition and if everything checks out, your trade-in will be complete. If your device doesn’t match the condition you described, you’ll receive an email with next steps. If you paid in full and the value of your device was more than the cost of your new iPhone, you’ll receive an Apple Gift Card by email with the remaining amount.

    The online trade-in process generally takes two to three weeks.

    You can also trade in your device at an Apple Store at the point of purchase. However, the trade-in value in the store may be different from the estimated trade-in value you received online.
