Available from launch in the UK (he says typing on his sim free iPhone 7+ 128gb black).
I wonder why they don't do that in the US.
Historically, 99.99% of people bought cell phones on carrier-subsidized, two-year contracts. They now do payment plans, but it's essentially the same thing. Since 99.99% of US customers still get their phone through a carrier or seemingly tied to a carrier, Apple funnels all their early production to there. When they catch up to the demand, then they can sell SIM-free ones.

If you get the sprint or Verizon version and pop out the sim, it's essentially sim free

Ironically enough SE sim free version doesn't work in Asia and they'd have to buy the sprint one and pop out the sim.

Most countries in Europe have GSM. In the US Verizon (and I believe sprint ) are CDMA. They do not mix. You need the right technology for your carrier.

Apple will sell an unlocked carrier free phone later on after the initial release sales. They will have both versions. CDMA and GSM. (if the CDMA is sim free I don't know. I do see that someone mentioned that you can remove the sim)

As to when, I personally have never known Apple to release a date on the unlocked phones but they could.

FYI if you buy an iPhone outright in full you do get an unlocked phone the same as they will sell later. I did this with my 6s plus
