Anonymous MacRumors informant claimsthat the largest American operators were instructed to prepare for the arrival of an iPhone without a SIM card slot. Its premiere would take place in September 2022, so we are talking about the next generation.
Earlier, & hairsp; – & hairsp; because in the second quarter of 2022 & hairsp; – & hairsp; selected telecoms would start delivering iPhones 13 with eSIM enabled by default, not the included card.
iPhone 14 only with eSIM chip? If anything, only in certain markets
Apple would completely abandon nano-SIM cards in favor of embedded eSIM chips. The company has been using this standard since the 2018 iPhone XS, but & hairsp; – & hairsp; for now & hairsp; – & hairsp; in parallel with the classic cards.
If Apple abandons physical cards in 2022, we can be sure that this change will only affect operator sales in a handful of markets, perhaps only in the US. It cannot be otherwise.
Although the eSIM standard has been present on the consumer market since 2017, most operators in the world still do not have it in their offers. In Poland, only customers of Orange and the global Truphone network can still activate a subscription directly from the iPhone.
The popularity of eSIM offers is growing month by month, but the situation will not change dramatically in less than a year. And Apple has no special interest in giving up hundreds of millions of potential customers in the name of technological ideals.
Therefore, we can be almost sure that in Poland iPhones with physical SIM cards will do well for a long time.
