Unlocking policies with the various networks differ greatly. If you bought an iPhone 2nd hand or on Ebay for example, were gifted an iPhone, if you are not the original contract holder or if a contract period remains, to name but a few, you probably will not meet the requirements to unlock directly via the network. This is when an Official Factory Apple Unlock Service is required.

An Official Apple Unlock service removes ALL network restrictions imposed by the existing network and allows your iPhone 5s to be used with ANY network, around the World. Unless stated, as long as your iPhone 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 iPhone will be unlocked to use any sim card and no longer limited to any individual provider.

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 the network it is locked to. 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.

How to unlock iPhone 5s:

  3. Order your iPhone Unlock - Instant submission upon payment.
  4. Unlock confirmation email sent immediately upon status update.
  5. Simply insert a new Sim card whilst connected to an active WiFi signal to complete the unlock.

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.

    As as service it is First Class, simply provide them with your IMEI and they do the rest. Email gets sent when the unlock is done, swap sim cards and that's it!! Couldn't be easier.

    Told I had to wait another 6 months before I was eligible for an unlock by my network, these guys unlocked me in less than 2 days!

    Lets face it, the only reason we read these reviews is to get the confidence of those who have gone before us! It's the only reason I have taken the time to add this, simply because the service and customer service was beyond all of my expectations. I took the chance and I am pleased to say it worked, my iPhone 5s was unlocked from the Vodafone network in under 3 days. Cannot recommend highly enough. Great job

    After trying 2 other companies on ebay, neither delivering and still chasing refunds, I was close to giving up. Of course the ebay services were a lot cheaper and that should obviously have been the alarm bell!! This service could not be more different, profession, fast and I could actually speak to a real person on live chat. Don't waste your time and money on cheap sites, they don't work. You get what you pay for! Brilliant

    I purchased an iPhone from a visitor from England but needed it unlocked for Movistar Spain. On just the 2nd day I received the unlock confirmation and it worked 1st time. I was fearful it would not unlock because I was in Spain but I need not have worried. Great service

    I was in a hurry to unlock my phone and was bombarded with confusing websites. I found this site and could see they had lots of satisfied customers. The very next day I received my unlock confirmation and simply inserting a new sim card in to the phone, it was recognised and I have been using it without a problem since. The service was excellent
