The end of physical SIM cards on iPhone is announced

Just a few years after allowing users to set up an electronic SIM card (eSIM) with the iPhone XS, Apple is reportedly on track to phase out the physical SIM card from iPhones.

MacRumors says that “Apple has advised major US carriers to prepare for the launch of eSIM-only smartphones by September 2022.” Therefore, future iPhone 14 models could be the first to use only eSIM technology. Unless it is the iPhone 15, the next generation, that would benefit from this new functionality.

In 2017, Apple put an eSIM on its Apple Watch. On recent iPhones, it’s the dual SIM option Apple has introduced, with a physical card alongside a virtual card.

The SIM card war is nothing new

The SIM card war is nothing new. Already in 2011 Apple filed a patent to create a mobile virtual network, an MVNO, the direct consequence of which was to force telecommunications operators to bid to sell their services to iPhone users. In 2014, Apple introduced Apple SIM, a kind of precursor to eSIM. And Samsung has been working on the concept for many years, too.

The eSim card offers many advantages: it cannot be lost, it has more memory, it can store multiple cell profiles, etc. It’s also extremely small compared to a SIM slot, and it takes up much less space inside the phone, which can be put to good use for the battery and other components.
