By 2023, Apple is expected to release a physical SIM-free iPhone with its iPhone 15 series. Since the iPhone 13 is the most recent model, according to a claim from BlogDoiPhone report. The iPhone 15 might be the first iPhone model without a real SIM card slot, according to the rumor. According to “internal sources,” the rumor should be regarded with a grain of salt.
According to the report, “Apple has long been experimenting with ways to no longer need the SIM card (known in Brazil as the “carrier chip“), implementing eSIM technology. But according to internal sources of the iPhone Blog, from 2023 the Pro version of the iPhone may already start coming without any input to the physical SIM, working only with 2 eSIM slots. The iPhone and iPad have both been transitioning towards eSIM technology for the past several years. In fact, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro are the first iPhone models to feature support for dual eSIMs, allowing you to use two eSIMs simultaneously.”
If Apple is indeed committed to a SIM-free iPhone and wants to debut the design with the iPhone 15, it should be assumed that the iPhone 15 will not be available in all of Apple’s normal foreign markets, since eSIM acceptance may be difficult in some nations.
There have also been rumours that Apple is working on a port-less iPhone that would do away with the Lightning connector. It appears to be too good to be true for 2015, but it will be interesting to see the new design modifications when they come.
