eSIM may be the only option for iPhone 15 Series owners in more countries
The eSIM option may be the only one in more countries in 2023 as the iPhone 15 series is rolled out in the fall. Apple may be attempting to expand the eSIM-only connectivity beyond the US, where the iPhone 14 was already sold with this as the only option. All other markets did have a chance to get an iPhone 14 with an actual physical SIM card slot.
Rumors are claiming that France and some other European countries may no longer have access to a physical card slot in their new iPhones starting with this year’s range. eSIM technology was introduced as far back as in 2018 in the iPhone XS and XR, allowing for dual SIM use. Soon enough, Google and Samsung followed in Apple’s footsteps.
Apple allowed up to eight eSIM profiles on its last year’s model, which makes it extremely convenient for avid travelers. Other rumored details about the upcoming iPhone 15 series include the expansion Dynamic Island feature, introduced last year on only the Pro models to all four 2023 models.
