My, how far we've come from the days when only AT&T carried the iPhone. As 9to5 Mac reports, today Apple started the rollout of unlocked models of the iPhone 5s without SIM cards on the online Apple Store.

A new report claims that Apple has adjusted its proposed nano-SIM standard to address complaints by Nokia, with a final vote expected soon -- even though the technology itself isn’t expected before 2013.
As reported on Friday, AT&T has curiously started to unlock off-contract iPhones, choosing Easter Sunday to kick the service off. Judging from reports online, many users have been successful at getting their handsets freed from Ma Bell’s shackles, while others are still waiting.
