The lack of ports on the iPhone 14 could be a sign of things to come. Apple has already gotten rid of the headphone jack, which users had mixed feelings about. Now, it looks like it will get rid of the SIM card port and switch to an eSIM (embedded SIM) system, which could really improve the user experience, at least according to what the reports say.
There have recently been rumors that the iPhone 14 will be the first Apple device to switch from iPhone 14 SIM card to eSIM card. At the moment, all phones have a slot where you can put one or two SIM cards and, in some cases, a memory card. Usually, you need a small tool to open it. Since the eSIM is built into the phone and can’t be taken out, that wouldn’t be necessary. Instead, the phone provider would just give it a new number.
This may sound a little complicated, and it makes me wonder if it would be easy to use two SIM cards in one phone or if that is no longer possible. But you don’t have to worry if you don’t want to switch right away. The eSIM versions will be sold alongside the traditional SIM versions, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. This means that you only need to check at the end of your purchase to see if you bought the one that still works with a traditional SIM.
Even though there have been a lot of rumors about what the iPhone 14 will look like and how it will change, this report could be true because we have heard similar information in other reports. Also, it’s no secret that Apple is trying to find the best ways to use the size and space of its iPhones by getting rid of some things (like the headphone jack).
And even though eSIM sounds complicated, experts say it can be much easier to use them because they can be updated more easily and have more information than a traditional card. The only thing that might be limited is the ability to switch between the two on the same phone. This could depend on Apple and the carrier.
We’ll confirm this as soon as we can, but it might not be until September, when the new iPhone and all of its new features will be officially announced.
