Latest: Apple reported to ‘discard’ SIM card slot for iPhone 14 series

by Grace Sundram

Following the surprise of not providing a device charger with the iPhone 12 series, Apple is expected to surprise again with the arrival of the iPhone 14 without a SIM card slot.

According to rumours, the 14th series of iPhones will be on sale around September 2022, and a big modification that the business will do is to ‘throw’ the SIM card slot on the smartphone.


Simultaneously, the actual SIM card that is now in use will be replaced with an eSIM for the purpose of coverage connection, which is nothing ‘new.’

According to one of the well-known portals, MacRumors, Apple has really supplied eSIM functionality since 2018, coinciding with the release of the iPhone XS model in September 2018.

Simultaneously, numerous telecoms providers are said to be prepared for this by releasing the iPhone 13 without a nano-SIM in the second half of 2022, in addition to letting consumers acquire coverage using eSIM exclusively.

Unlike earlier versions, it is believed that the iPhone 13 includes dual-SIM support capabilities via the eSIM module, and iPhone owners may now have two distinct networks without needing nano-SIM.

Furthermore, this big shift is likely to allow Apple to create a more appealing design as well as increase water resistance on the forthcoming iPhone series.
