Recently, many reports say that Apple will remove the SIM tray from the iPhone starting with the iPhone 15 series in 2023. Soon after, MacRumors received anonymous comments with specific content Apple. negotiated with major carriers in the US market. At the same time, the Cupertino manufacturer is also working on an eSIM solution for the upcoming phone line, ie iPhone 14.
This information is believed to be reliable when @dylandkt confirmed that the iPhone 14 series will bring many changes compared to its predecessor. Therefore, the user side is looking forward to the new iPhone line, the first is the switch to eSIM. As is known, currently the models equipped with dual SIM are the iPhone XS and iPhone XR.
Specifically, the big company has provided a physical SIM tray with eSIM functionality with carriers providing support for the device. At the same time, they added in iOS 12.1 compatibility and further established with subsequent iOS releases. This problem has been mentioned by Apple since the iPhone 13 was not released, but it did not work, and now all hopes are focused on the iPhone 14.
Until now, it is rare for smart devices to be equipped with the same. Therefore, if it is true that next year Apple equips the iPhone 14, the company is leading the trend. It is known that Dylan (@dylandkt) shared with specific content as follows: I agree with the recent rumors regarding the removal of the physical SIM card tray. In February, I shared the following: https://t.co/zOyeJr0V1d(December 27, 2021)
However, the use of eSIM still has some problems, such as carrier support in each region. Apparently, in some countries this feature is not available. Therefore, Apple is facing a big hurdle and does not know how they will solve it. Most users guess that the giant will produce iPhones with eSIM and some variants with physical trays for only a few niche markets.
To be fair, removing the physical SIM tray from the handset is a useful solution. Specifically, the SIM tray ejecting and inserting mechanism will no longer be needed and of course this will free up space inside the phone. Especially when removing the SIM, it is easier for the device to keep water and dust inside the phone.
Because of that, recently there is information that Apple is aiming for a future device without ports. As can be seen, the first step of the plan is that the giant removes the headphone jack, now will remove the SIM tray. The next possible step is to remove the charging port altogether. And of course, the giant is implementing a wireless charging solution and is well received by users.
Hopefully in the future MagSafe will be good enough, complete enough to replace the usual charging method. Finally, regarding the iPhone 14 series, Apple will bring 4 variants that are iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Besides, the devices will be equipped with Touch ID, especially completely removing the notch, replacing the hole-cutting part.
