Apple is reportedly planning to phase out the SIM card tray from its smartphones starting from the Apple iPhone 14 series. As per numerous reports, the tech giant has advised major carriers to prepare for the launch of eSIM-only iPhone by September 2022. apple esim
It is possible that Apple might remove the physical SIM card slot starting with some iPhone 14 models, rather than some iPhone 15 models as originally rumoured.
It is also said that there will be support for two eSIM cards, ensuring dual SIM functionality. The removal of the SIM card slot could further improve water resistance.
The next flagship series, the iPhone 14 line-up, will come with up to 2 TB of storage.
Apple will adopt QLC flash storage for next year’s iPhone and that thanks to the newer storage technology, it will increase capacity to 2 TB.
Apple is also reportedly planning to add a 48MP camera lens to the iPhone next year, followed by a periscope lens in 2023.
These iPhone camera upgrades over the next two years will help to boost Taiwanese manufacturer Largan Precision’s market share, revenue, and profit. The 48MP camera will be limited to iPhone 14 Pro models and allow for 8K video recording, up from 4K currently.
8K videos would be suitable for viewing on Apple’s AR/VR headset that may launch next year.
Apple first introduced support for eSIM technology with the launch of dual-SIM iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and affordable iPhone XR. Currently, every iPhone model launched in 2018 or after (excluding iPhone SE) comes with support for one physical SIM and one eSIM.
Apart from Apple iPhones, Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series, Samsung Galaxy S20 series, Samsung Galaxy S21 series, Samsung foldable phones, Google Pixel smartphones and few other flagship devices from major smartphone manufacturers support eSIM. apple esim
