    Not currently.

    And what If I order one? Because from an authorised reseller of my country they told me that they exist factory unlocked for worldwide use.

    Apple will not ship phones outside the country of purchase.

    I know that but my question is if there are unlocked iphones for all countries for me to buy it from USA

  • gdgmacguy Level 6 Level 6 (19,440 points)

    Apple has not announced the availability in the US of an unlocked iPhone 5s.  Reportedly the T-moble non-contract phone AVAILABLE ONLY FROM APPLE is unlocked.  The iPhone 5s is nearly impossible to purchase in any Apple store in the US as the supplies are very low.  You cannot order one from Apple online in the US to send to another country.

    Is that why Apple are cutting back on the 5C? I hear they're cutting back production quotas heavily on the 5C as most are looking for 5S.

    Unless and until Apple announces why it is supposedly cutting back on the 5c, it is all speculation, which is prohibited by the TOU of this forum.

    The reason why Apple decreases the production of iphone 5c in half, is because the demand of it is less than the expected and of course much less than of the iphone 5s's one and it is evident because it doesn't have the price that public was expecting. It doesn't have to do with the unlocked featcure though, but I have seen in Apple's site that the unlocked feature of it in comparison to the iphone 5s's are different and this seems to be full unlocked but as they are no ways to communicate with the company unless you call them in person, we can never know....
