iPhone 15 may skip SIM Cards Globally

The same feature that Apple decided to remove from the entire iPhone 14 series in the United States may not be included in the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro in Europe.

The iPhone 15 models are reportedly going on sale in France without a physical SIM card slot this year, according to a recent report. Additionally, as noted by MacRumors, it’s possible that the SIM tray will also be eliminated in other European nations.

Is this a major issue? When we set up our phones, we discovered that Apple switched to eSIMs for the iPhone 14 models in America. Your carrier information is digitally stored on the iPhone with an eSIM, according to Apple, lowering the possibility of damage, loss, or theft.

Additionally, you can use two numbers simultaneously and install eight or more eSIMs on your iPhone. One eSIM, for instance, could be used for personal calls and the other for business calls.

Why should Europe switch to eSIM now? iPhone 15:

Apple did not introduce eSIM support in Europe first, but there is a reason for that. When visiting a new country, it is very common for people to purchase a new SIM card for their phone. The level of comfort with switching SIM cards is also much higher there.

However, one of our reporters tested out using an eSIM while visiting France and Italy, and they found the process to be simple. It was also simple for her to change networks. Additionally, you can individually label each of your active lines to make it simple to remember which one is which.

There are apps like Airalo for iOS and Android that make selecting eSIM plans on the go even simpler to make things even simpler. Also present is Holafly.

With the upcoming release of the iPhone 15, more carriers seem to be adopting the feature, which is another reason Apple might be taking this action. Five U.K. carriers, including EE, O2, Truphone, Ubigi, and Vodafone, support some variation of eSIM activation on the iPhone, according to Apple’s website.

Other Significant iPhone 15 Changes:

Apple isn’t the only company to leave things unfinished, including the SIM card tray. According to rumors, the iPhone 15 will no longer have a Lightning port because a USB-C port will be included in its place. This is encouraging news, but we’ve also heard that Apple might decide to limit the fastest charging and transfer rates to USB-C cables that have been approved by the company.

On the chopping block as well? That might be physical buttons, despite rumors that the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max will have haptic buttons in their place. The mute switch and volume buttons could both be replaced by a volume rocker.

Other noteworthy improvements to the iPhone 15 include the removal of the notch and the Dynamic Island for all four models. The biggest updates are anticipated for the iPhone 15 Pro models, which will feature a titanium design, periscope zoom, and a faster, more efficient A17 Bionic chip.
