Rumor claims iPhone 15 Pro could be Apple’s first iPhone without a physical SIM card slot
Brazilian website Blog do iPhone is out with a new report on Friday claiming that the iPhone 15 Pro could be Apple’s first iPhone to launch without a physical SIM card slot, suggesting the new device will replace the physical nano-SIM card used today to create Apple’s first SIM-free iPhone.
The sketchy report cites “internal sources” who supposedly have knowledge of the plans. The translated report reads: “Apple has long been experimenting with ways to no longer need the SIM card (known in Brazil as the “carrier chip“), implementing eSIM technology. But according to internal sources of the iPhone Blog, from 2023 the Pro version of the iPhone may already start coming without any input to the physical SIM, working only with 2 eSIM slots.”
The report should be taken with a heavy pinch of salt.
