Apple has considered completely removing the physical SIM card slot from some iPhone 14 models
According to Bloomberg, Apple has internally discussed launching more iPhones without physical SIM card slots by next year, as part of Apple’s push to eSIM cards. The eSIM version that Apple has launched in some markets is mainly a combination of SIM+eSIM. Now Apple wants to push eSIM to completely abandon the SIM card slot in more markets.
The eSIM card is a digital SIM card, which mainly replaces the physical SIM card with a chip. The information in the chip can be rewritten, so it is very convenient for consumers to purchase, download and activate the SIM. The iPhone 13 series models currently sold in some markets no longer come with a nano-SIM card. After turning on the iPhone, users can follow the instructions and connect to WiFi to activate the eSIM card.
Another benefit of eSIM cards is that the iPhone can support multiple eSIM profiles so that users can easily switch between different regions of business. With eSIM, the little space saved can also make the interior design more convenient.
