IPhone 14 Series Will Be The First To Ditch The Physical SIM Card Slot In Favour Of ESIM

The iPhone 14 Series Will Be The First To Use ESIM Instead Of A Physical SIM Card Slot.

Apple is expected to unveil new iPhone models without a physical SIM card slot in September 2022, according to a source. Instead, the affected iPhone models would only support eSIM for cellular network connectivity. The iPhone 14 family could be the catalyst for the change next year. Apple has supported eSIM on its iPhone models since the debut of the iPhone XS in September 2018. In addition to eSIM functionality, all current iPhone models contain a Nano-SIM card slot.

Apple has told major US carriers to prepare for eSIM-only smartphones by September, according to MacRumors, citing a reportedly trustworthy document provided by an unnamed source. In the second quarter of 2022, certain carriers are scheduled to begin shipping iPhone 13 models without a Nano-SIM card in the package as part of the transition. This would allow customers to connect to their principal network via eSIM.

The iPhone 13 series, unlike previous iPhone models, allows several eSIM profiles, allowing for dual-SIM capabilities with eSIM. This means that iPhone users with the most recent models can connect to two different networks without using their Nano-SIM cards. Apple is likely to switch to a complete eSIM model next year, so this could be just the beginning.

According to a person who goes by the Twitter moniker Dylan, Apple is planning to remove physical SIM card support from its iPhone models.

By removing the Nano-SIM card port from future iPhone models, Apple may be able to provide improved water resistance and design. It would also allow the maker to use alternate components in place of the physical SIM card slot.

Gadgets 360 has reached out to Apple for comment, and if the company responds, we will update this storey.

Three main private cellular companies in India support eSIM connections: Airtel, Vi, and Jio. As a result, Indian carriers would be free to ignore Apple’s rumoured decision to phase out Nano-SIM card slots in the future.
