However, it should be treated with skepticism, because all the information that was disclosed was allegedly based on “internal sources”.
But there is some logic in this, after all, over the past years, the iPhone and iPad have been smoothly switching to eSIM technology. What are the latest models of Apple smartphones on which this technology is present.
In addition, there is a possibility that Apple is working on an iPhone without ports, that is, an iPhone without a Lightning connector. And it would already be logical to implement it together with the rejection of the physical slot for SIM-cards. These two innovations could increase the durability of the devices.
Even if Apple abandons such slots, it will not do it for all countries, but only in those where eSIM is popular.
