Unlocking policies with the various networks differ greatly. If you bought an iPhone 2nd hand or were gifted an iPhone, if you are not the original contract holder or if a contract period remains (to name but a few) it's likely you will not meet the requirements to unlock directly via O2. This is when an Official Factory Apple Unlock Service is required.
An Official Apple Unlock removes ALL network restrictions imposed by O2 both in and around the world. This allows your iPhone 5s to be used with ANY network and unlocked from anywhere in the world. Unless stated, as long as your iPhone 5s has not been reported 'lost or stolen', any iPhone 5s can be unlocked, regardless of contractual period (unless stated) etc. Once unlocked you are able to swap and change network Sim cards at your will. Your will be unlocked to use any sim card and no longer limited to just O2 in .
To unlock your iPhone 5s with an Official Permanent iPhone Unlock all we require is the IMEI of the phone and a contact email address to receive all correspondence and ultimately, the 'Unlock Confirmation'.
An IMEI number is a unique 15 digit number that identifies your handset and its lock to the O2 network. The process updates your IMEI on the Apple GSX database and it is marked as 'Unlocked/Whitelisted/Sim Free'. This is the only permanent unlock, recognised by Apple.

The iPhone 5S was unveiled on September 10, 2013 and released into the market on September 20, 2013. The iPhone 5 was released alongside it’s cheaper model, the iPhone 5C.
iPhone 5S maintained most of the same external design as the iPhone 5 but received a new white/gold color scheme in addition to white/silver and gray/black of the previous model..
It utilised the nano-SIM and a redesigned home button with Touch ID, a fingerprint recognition system which was used to unlock the phone and authenticate App Store and iTunes Store purchases. The camera was updated with a larger aperture and a dual-LED flash optimized for different color temperatures. The 5S also introduced the A7 64-bit dual-core processor, the first 64-bit processor to be used on a smartphone, accompanied by the M7 "motion co-processor".
The iPhone 5S was the first Apple device to ship with iOS 7 which introduced a revamped visual appearance and other new features. Among the new features in this software version were AirDrop, an ad-hoc Wi-Fi sharing platform; Control Center, a control panel containing a number of commonly used functions; and iTunes Radio, an internet radio service.
Nine million units of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C were sold on the first weekend of their release, breaking all previous sales records. Succeeded by the larger iPhone 6 in September 2014, the iPhone 5S received a direct replacement in the form of the iPhone SE, which incorporated internal hardware similar to the iPhone 6S while retaining the smaller design of the 5S.
