As with the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models, the iPhone X won’t have the same carrier compatibility for all variants.

While GSM is the standard for most carriers around the globe, Sprint and Verizon in the U.S. still use CDMA. Apple hasn’t shared the iPhone X’s exact cellular specifications on its website, but it has stated that the AT&T and T-Mobile variants will be GSM only and won’t work with Verizon and Sprint.

The company has also announced that all models are unlocked, but that the Verizon and Sprint models will have the most carrier flexibility, until Apple offers a SIM-free version.
