It seems there will be three new iPhones this year as well, but you probably already heard that. What’s changing though is that Apple might add dual-SIM standby support to two of those iPhones. And the company will use its Apple SIM technology for that.
According to a report by China’s 21st Century Business Herald, the SIM tray on these iPhones will have two SIM trays. However, one of them will be a virtual Apple SIM, and the feature will be available in the Chinese units of the iPhones only. And though the reports don’t say so, it would make sense for dual-SIM cards to be done in the Indian market too.
The Apple SIM was first announced back in 2014, when the company used them on its iPads. That was the iPad Air 2 and Apple has made it a part of many iPads since.
The SIM allows wireless providers to attach to Apple devices without actually selling a SIM to the customer. The pricing may also differ for the company’s devices and the customer can choose the price and plan they like best.
